Inspired by Balearic beaches and colourful coastlines, ellesse High Summer 2018 is a collection of must-pack pieces that can be mixed and matched whatever the destination or occasion. When Thomas Falkenstedt, Candid's Fashion Editor, saw this collection he booked a trip to somewhere tropical immediately. He wouldn't tell us where, however.
ellesse High Summer is a heritage collection that successfully combines lifestyle and swim categories with multiple swim short designs, vests and t-shirt coordinate options for men.
Who needs an abundance of clothes on holidays anyway? From personal experience I can tell you there's always a suitcase full of clothes, never even used during my trips, as I tend to wear my fave pieces all week long. It's somewhat refreshing and relaxing, especially when you work with fashion.
A pastel palette of tender yellow, soft lavender, sterling blue and strawberry cream echo through the men’s Heritage collection, drawing on nostalgic summer ice cream shades and contemporising with trend-led and summer-focused design, textured fabrics, graphic prints, and dye effects.
Accessories accompanying the collection in matching colour palette and prints, include hats, bold visors and waist bags – all festival season must-haves.
ellesse’s High Summer Italia collection for men has a minimalist feel, with a palette of muted tones consisting of navy, blue and optic white. The collection focuses on smart shirts in premium fabrics including Oxford Cotton and Poplin, embroidered with ellesse’s iconic semi-palla.
If you feel like being stylish on your vacation, don't do like I do. Simply pack a pair of shorts, a few tees and some nice accessories and you'll be all set for a carefree holiday without the fuss of worrying about what to wear painstakingly taking an hour of your time every morning. That's an hour you can spend sipping orange juice in the sun instead.
