James Perse SS13 Collection
American designer James Perse has released his SS13 collection of luxury basics, inspired by warm, West Coast living. Perse has a low-maintenance, high-impact attitude to fashion, adding a luxurious dimension to easy-to-wear wardrobe staples.
A range of super-soft jersey t-shirts, sweaters and button-down shirts will give your capsule wardrobe a much needed upgrade. The collection is sleek and refined, with clean lines and silhouettes prevalent throughout.
Perse’s design aesthetic is inspired by his love of minimal architecture and Californian indoor/outdoor living. Each piece is both elegant and comfortable, with the designer showing a clear focus on sophistication and simplicity. This is a range of clothing that you would live in at the weekend and in your down time.
The collection is available in a restrained palette of black, grey, blue and white, with orange and green pieces adding pops of colour where required. With this being a casual collection, the classic tee is prominent throughout, coming in a variety of different colour ways and neck lines. Perse’s tees are made from fine cotton jersey and feature a relaxed cut for supreme comfort, whilst subtle touches such as twisted trims shows a clear attention to detail.
Hoodies knitted from loopback cotton-jersey are superb lightweight options for layering and thin enough to fit comfortably under a jacket when the temperature drops. They are currently available in black, grey and charcoal colour options.
For those looking for slightly smarter options, try the charcoal button-up shirt. A FashionBeans favourite, Perse softens the hard-edged appeal of the classic military shirt with this cotton-twill number in a tactile brushed finish. The shirt has two front chest pockets and perfectly embodies the brand’s ethos of relaxed sophistication – pair it with the cargo shorts in the range for an on trend smart-casual summer outfit.
