Fashion thinkers March 2014

By Rory Dougherty

New York Fashion Week generally focuses on women; however, spring brought much excitement to the men’s runway! The majority of men’s collections were athletic and preppy with many colorful prints. From plaid to floral, even camo made a comeback! Bottom line: to be style savvy, a contrasting pattern with a button-down shirt will be part of your updated wardrobe.

If you’re looking for something that really makes a statement at the pool or beach, graphic tees are in. For colorful, creative and comfortable, my recommendation is Sol Angeles. Known for their unique designs, Sol Angeles exemplifies the “Cali cool” lifestyle. With a “low maintenance” approach to refined living their clothing can brave any casual atmosphere.

“The eyes are the portals to the soul.” With that said, IC Berlin Sunglasses are a high priority. Their patented screw-less frames create an illusion of weightlessness — you hardly know you’re wearing them! Vibrant, beautiful and sophisticated they remain unique, refined and distinct.

Floral prints are one of the hottest menswear styles this spring and Duvin Design is one step ahead with its Beach Brigade Collection. Featuring floral motif shirts and shorts, Duvin brings runway fashion to your everyday life. Other brands currently on trend this season include Fidelity Denim, Del Toro shoes and Nixon premium accessories.

Zanerobe is influenced by a hectic lifestyle of festivals, travel, friends, street and surf.
If you’re going to join the excitement for men’s clothing this spring, then you need to be daring, bold, and Elektrik. This is a great opportunity to give your wardrobe variety reflecting your personality and showcasing your unique style.
