Libertine Libertine Hunter Shirt – Blue Illusion
If you’re looking for a touch of retro chic this season, look no further than the brilliant Scandinavian brand Libertine Libertine. The ‘Hunter Shirt’ in blue illusion is part of the brand’s new spring/summer 2013 collection.
Although also available in a red colourway, blue is set to be THE colour trend for men this season (as previously reported on FashionBeans) and brings to mind some of the wonderful glacial tones of the brand’s homeland. This is a piece that will keep you looking uber cool all through summer – and well into autumn.
Crafted from 100% cotton, the shirt boasts pearl buttons and a single chest pocket, along with a button-down collar. Able to be dressed up or down effortlessly, the blue base tones will mix well with anything in your wardrobe. Match with other shades of blue to create on trend tonal outfits or neutralise with shades of grey, brown or white.
Due to the loud pattern, this shirt should be put front and centre in any look. The bold pattern brings to mind 1970s or 1980s retro, and heralds a return to large, statement men’s fashion.
With this in mind, roll up the sleeves and try pairing with slim, tailored shorts in white/red if you want to stand out this summer. For those that prefer a more subtle approach, layering a cement grey linen blazer over the top will help compartmentalise the print – allowing it to provide a shot of flair to any smart-casual ensemble.
So forget minimalism this summer and bring your own personality to the fore with a unique, stand out pattern that is designed to get you noticed.
The hunter shirt is available from StreetCasuals.com for £100.
