Zara Edition Spring/Summer 2013
Zara’s premium ‘Edition’ line has released a new spring/summer collection for men. This limited edition collection utilises finer materials to create a range of classic summer tailoring, set apart by a strong sense of luxury.
Suiting forms the centrepiece of the collection. Constructed from a wool and cashmere blend, giving them a premium feel, the suits are a manageable weight for summer, ensuring that you will stay cool and sweat-free in the heat.
Bright two button suits in indigo and a rusty brown provide a summer-appropriate take on traditional navy and brown tailoring, helping to subtlety separate your look from the rest of the workforce this season.
However, a six button double-breasted suit in a windowpane check is the stand out piece due to its embracing of the classic pattern. It is an unashamedly elegant piece that is on trend for SS13 yet retains a timeless, classic aesthetic that will ensure it gets regular use for years to come.
The suits are paired with knitted ties and shirts in a blend of cotton and linen, which not only helps add texture to the looks but also showcases the quality of the construction materials; in turn emphasising the collection’s luxury appeal.
This sense of luxury is embraced by the rest of the pieces on offer. The best example of this is a double-breasted blazer in white silk, which reinforces the grandiose nature of the range but can be tempered effortlessly with neutral pieces (think classic navy legwear).
Silk is also blended with cotton to craft sweatshirts; this adds a smarter touch to an otherwise casual piece and sees them cohere better with the tailoring of the collection. Linen shirts with a paisley pattern add a touch of seasonal print and summer functionality but the traditional inspiration for the pattern makes sure they do not seem out of touch with the rest of the collection.
A polo shirt and simple leather jacket add a casual touch to the range, and ensure you have something to wear in the downtimes when a suit may be a little much.
The collection is accentuated with tasteful leather accessories and a pair of fringed bluchers that make a statement whilst still allowing the suits to take centre stage.
Overall, Zara Editions new spring/summer range channels the best of classic tailoring to produce a quality summer range that cuts no corners and delivers timeless style in every piece.
