Maison Kitsune MS16 (1)Come summer 2016, Parisians either escape the urban bustle to seek a calm oasis or remain in the capital, a newly deserted terrain that invites exploration.

Conceived from this spirit of adventure, Maison Kitsuné is thrilled to unveil its Men’s Spring/Summer 2016 Collection. Filled with romance and optimism, this season embraces the sartorial inclinations of those who thirst for exciting escapades filled with promise.

Exhibiting carefully-selected textiles that play with contrast and texture, the collection features raw cotton, chambray, moleskin and linen, which are creased, slubbed and washed, then combined unwaveringly with richer fabrics.

In addition to the meticulous attention paid to detail and finishes, this unique assemblage of materials simultaneously evokes classic and modern summer style.

Hues of blue and true indigo saturate the collection, inspired by the Tuareg people whose vivid indigo garments came to define them as the “blue men” of the Sahara Desert. Gentle shades in lighter tones – white, gray and aqua green – are accented with splashes of poppy red and intense emerald.

With a subtle appeal, the season’s motifs – geometric micro floral, hibiscus, paisley, polka-dots, stripes and checks – further the depth and edge of the line.

Designed by co-founders and creative directors Gildas Loaëc and Masaya Kuroki, the Spring/Summer “Paris Désert” Collection presents a laid-back vibe while maintaining the effortless chic that defines the Maison Kitsuné man.
