Refresh Your Look With Spring 16
Fast track your style into the new year and update your wardrobe with our transitional trend
Our spring transitional trend, "Undercurrent", is inspired by the movement of water below the surface. Undercurrent is built on the fusion of sports luxe with dressy-casual elements. It's a fresh and floaty feel, with fall-look items restyled in lighter fabrics and brighter colors, from beanies to parkas, for an overall laid-back look.
Aquatic colors are the collection's foundation, from glacial off-whites and pale blues, to azure shades and deep navy as the collection moves forward. Denim also moves with the color transition, a big part of our take on the season--from light to mid and dark washes in skinny and slim fits.
The fabric focus is on luscious liquid looks, like the transparent hooded zip-up in see-though nylon with a mesh underlay, for a peek-a-boo effect. The trend’s theme also comes into play through prints like distorted water reflections and swimming pool tiles, used on sweaters, t-shirts and shirts.
Light layers are an easy way to opt into this look, starting with the Men’s must-have piece: the flight jacket. It comes in a lightweight version that’s adaptable and multi-seasonal, perfect with a casual open shirt, or a printed tee and jeans from our wide range of denim. Finish it off with accessories like backpacks and sports-inspired sneakers in neutral colors: they're versatile and adaptable for a wide range of looks.
