Forget sailor hats, bateau necklines and Breton stripes; at Sportmax we were presented with a different type of sailor chic. A nautical collection less obvious although every now and then still very blunt. Modern and slightly minimalistic (if it wasn’t for the chain motif, large eyelets and big buttons) were the jumpsuits, sailor pants, boxy jackets and shift dresses in a mix of black, blue, white, tangerine and yellow. Bright yellow, done in leather inspired by the looks of a sou’wester, that got large fish net prints on it towards the end of the show. And we can assure you, a fishnet never looked this chic.
No figure hugging, chest baring or leg revealing here. These were maritime looks for the sophisticated. Making the collection suitable for a large target audience. And they might have been cruise inspired, they’re not necessarily best to take with you on a tropical trip. These pieces belong to the wardrobe of a city girl.
