D’URBAN Spring/Summer 2014 Collection – High-Summer Suit Season

 D’URBAN makes headlines this season with the expansion of its popular High-Summer Suit Collection, a new silhouette for business jackets and a collection that salutes both the 70s and the urban resort style.
High-Summer Suit Season
D’URBAN announces an exciting return of its acclaimed High-Summer Suit Collection in Greater China Region this season. High-Summer Suit is a thoughtful invention and an exclusive development by D’URBAN in 1997 specially for the Asian Market. By creating clothing microclimate, High-Summer Suit facilitates ultra high breathability, moisture permeability and thermal conductivity. The trademark fabric releases inner heat and block UV from outside.  Being light, soft and smooth, firm in shape and stylish, High-Summer Suit is a functional solution for smart-looking urban men. SS14 High-Summer Suit Collection carries on the innovative spirit by adding new fabrications such as silk, mohair and a silk-linen blend in rich patterns and color palettes.
To pair with the High-Summer Suit collection, D’URBAN is also launching Ice Cotton business shirts which are made from a fantastic patent fabric that is cool to the touch thanks to triangular fibers that do not lay flat against the skin.
Glamorous D’URBAN
D’URBAN celebrates the introduction of a new silhouette for its business jackets. “D’URBAN Glamorous Cut” is slightly longer in length, wider across the back and narrower across the chest with a hint of Italian flair in details such as the gentle curve of the chest pocket. The cut offers a slimming effect and a smart modern look which enhances the masculinity of sophisticated urban gentlemen.
70s Influence
For its Spring/Summer 2014 collection, D’URBAN draws inspiration from the “Up with People” feeling of the 1970s when fashion, music and culture embraced new ideas and free expression. Prints, palettes and silhouettes show a modernized hint of the 70s style. The safari jacket, a staple of the 70s wardrobe, is presented in updated variations that take advantage of modern materials and slimming silhouettes. One fine example transforms the safari jacket into a blazer with slit pockets on the chest, patch pockets trimmed in faux leather, and a stand-up collar. Accessorized with a fringed scarf in gold yellow, the look is perfect for indoors and outdoors.
Geometric and paisley patterns are spotted elsewhere in the collection with a focus on casual shirts, polo shirts and T-shirts while the worldwide preference for checks continues with a range of suits, jackets and trousers in sophisticated check patterns. Linen and mohair give a natural look and comfortable feel to tops, jackets and trousers. Jacquard lends texture to polo shirts, causal jackets and even suits.
The boxy linen-cotton blouson with wash-effect checks and the water-resistant jacket with large-scale checks and mesh inner pockets showcases how D’URBAN puts a modern spin on wardrobe classics.
Urban Resort
D’URBAN has also included a range of pieces inspired by sporting pursuits, particularly on the seas. Details like rope trim, drop loops, and draw cords add a touch of nautical panache, while a palate of grays and white accented by blue and tan captures a modern marine spirit. This subtle nod to yachtsman elegance can be found in a sky blue blouson that is lightweight and casual but also subtly sophisticated, with details like sleek snap closures, a mesh-lined hood, and a non-slip drawstring at the waist. D’URBAN plays with notions of casual and dress-wear by offering a shawl-collared cardigan worn like a jacket with charcoal grey dress pants, a dress shirt in deep purple and a paisley scarf.
