Kent & Curwen Spring/Summer 2016: Consortium of Athleisure

Inspired by the British military details, English fashion brand Kent & Curwen Spring/Summer 2016 Collection is about active men that fly up to the sky and dive deep in the ocean – smart, sporty and chic – made for today’s modern men.
Athletic Luxe
The best to train the physique in an army, Kent & Curwen commences spring with a collection that combines functional material and details designed for runners, creating your comfortable yet fashionable look.
A navy sweater inserts a strong sports accent with a striped armhole highlighted in white, half-zipped neck and pique texture. Made of cotton, a vivid blue cobalt crew neck tee guarantees comfort.
This collection also includes a 3-layers sports jacket that is technical and functional. The water-resistant piece uses high-quality waterproof material that accommodates the raining season. Zippers and a layer of mesh are equipped to ensure extra breathability during exercises. Fashion details around the collar upgraded the style of this outerwear.
Marine Chic
A collection that brings performance wear and up-to-date knitwear together; main colours include black and silver, as well as contrasting bright red.
A reversible red blouson is the season’s must-have. This 3-in-1 jacket’s reflective strip details on the sleeves confirm the extra sporty element. On causal days, match it with the classic pique polo shirt of grey-blue-red stripes, and a pair summer-friendly linen track pants that have elasticized waist and cuff, conveying the sporting pleasure.
Another highlight is the reflective silver running jacket that will definitely catches attention on the track. The functional waterproof front zipper and hoodie is perfect as a fashion-forward piece; again, the extensive range of polo shirts in the collection will be one of your favorite picks to mix-and-match with the shiny outerwear.
For men who are active and always on-the-go, a high quality flea jacket that is flexible and functional is essential. Against strong wind and rain, especially in the ever-raining London, the jacket is seamed by glue to decrease the possibility of water leaking. Not to mention the interior of the jacket is designed with breathability details, a nylon waistcoat that can be removed depending on the weather, as well as a removable hood for the style. The jacket will be your perfect travel partner in any extreme weather. Or, pick up your classic to-go formal black blazer with a versatile blend of cotton and nylon in any occasions for a sharp and fresh look.
Navy Envy
Navy and white, with an accent of brilliant yellow and occasional nautical stripes, the collection is inspired by naval uniform, but not in the lack of sportsmanship.
A reversible navy nylon jacket with hexagonal reflective prints on the inside, providing you a choice of going solid or prints depending on your mood; it goes with a round-neck stripped t-shirt with a yellow highlight on the chest, as if it is cheering for the energetic hot summer. For a bolder choice, go for a reversible yellow nylon barracuda jacket that is designed with sophisticated navy pipping and trimming attentive to details. A pair of suit pants is suggested to build definitive flair to this look.
More key looks include the typical modern blue sport coat that is made of wool and linen, the ideal fabrics for summer. The jacket has a slim silhouette that fits perfectly a well-trained man. The key to the look is the blue navy water camo printed sweatshirt that is not only on trend but comfortable. A pair of suit pants agreeably echoes the spirit of  “when sports meet high-fashion”.
Air Force
Flying and looking down from above, you see land of green and brown. This is how the color palette constructs in the collection – you will see a warm palette of earth tone, contrasting summer black, surplus green and lavender, as well as tropical-inspired floral prints, assembling a vibrant collection in summer.
The collection starts with a unique olive green nylon jacket that is carefully mixed with cotton linen that is convenient during hot summer time. Matching with a pair of black linen track pants that is carefully designed with an adjustable cuff hem, the look immediately transforms from the work-day formals to weekend causal smart.
Light-colour is always the no wrongdoings in summertime. This cream bomber jacket that is made of the summer-friendly cotton and silk is assuredly to impress. Light, bright and fresh-looking, the jacket’s stripped piping on the sides of sleeves highlight the sporting theme of the season. Put on the round-neck white t-shirt that its graphic is purposely designed in a reversed triangle form – so delicate that you must fall in love with; as well as a tan-coloured cuffed chino that put up today’s athletic daily look. As pleasant as the chino, here comes an earthy colour cotton blazer – soft and light for you to move around in summer.
