Sea, sun and sand – Henry Cotton chooses a slim fit look, in shades of milky white and royal blue, alternating in the shirts to a wide range of imaginative play in pastel colors.
Inspired by the life of the British businessman who divides his time between his offices in the city and his estate, the look is a mix of informal blazers, trench in technical fabric and stretch gabardine pants.
The jacket, declined in shades from lilac to blue and patterns ranging from classic striped micro check, produced exclusively for Henry Cotton’s. The tricot knitting is very light.
With khaki as the main color palette, the color theme is inspired by two stories.
The first, characterized by a spirit “authentic” and the extreme care for detail, is inspired by the seafaring world of taste vaguely vintage, dissolved in the raids from rugby.
With strong reference to the military bomber jackets are proposed together with leather garments in soft nappa which also has very strong military overtures.
The second part of the story is the history of explorers to Africa with the collection suited to a life in a relaxed resort and going on to a photo safari.
