Musto Clothing SS13 Collection
British label Musto has a deep sporting heritage that dates back to the 1964 Tokyo Olympics, where sailing sportsman Keith Musto participated. The label has since established itself as a leading high performance apparel provider, becoming experts in hi-tech waterproof sailing gear, soft shell jackets and quick dry shorts, as well as sailing/equestrian team wear that includes Gore-tex jackets, PrimaLoft gilets and Polartec fleeces.
Though their expertise lies in sportswear, the brand’s SS13 collection includes a selection of wearable pieces that would look just as good out at sea as they would walking down the high street.
The collection features jackets, chinos, shirts, polos and shorts with high performance construction but universal appeal – aided by a classic, minimal design ethos and restrained palette of black, white, beige and blue.
A great spring/summer jacket option is available in the form of the ‘Beacon’ blouson. The design takes inspiration from original sailing jacket styles but has been updated via a streamlined silhouette. Shower proof and breathable due to the Durable Water Repellent (DWR) coating and critically taped seams, it will deal with Britain’s unpredictable summer weather with ease.
The jacket would look great paired with the ‘Genoa’ slim fit chinos, which are made from 100% cotton twill and feature an Oxford cotton waistband. The chinos are available in a variety of colour ways and have a nautical/preppy vibe, nodding to the brand’s sailing heritage.
However, the highlight of the collection is the ‘Neptune 4’ jacket; fusing functionality and design to create a must own piece of outerwear. Available in black and cadet blue, it is waterproof and breathable due to its three fabric layer construction and features a bonded internal pocket with MP3 port. It comes complete with four large pockets to the front, meaning it is both stylish and practical.
Though still a high performance sportswear brand at heart, the SS13 collection sees Musto combine performance wear with strong aesthetics to create unfussy pieces that work well, whatever the setting.
