BOSS Black Menswear - Spring/Summer 2011

The new BOSS Black Collection was created under the headline “Summer Seascape.” Inspired by the upbeat lifestyle of Sydney, it evokes the spirit of carefree days on the Australian coast. Light, summery silhouettes in airy fabrics dominate. The cuts are easy and relaxed, sending the message of effortless elegance that is the BOSS Black trademark.

“Back to the Roots” – BOSS Black ensembles are quintessentially masculine and suave; it’s all about achieving the consummate look enhanced by the right accessories. Slim, double-breasted two-button suits in exclusive cotton/silk blends ensure flawless style from head to toe. One of the season’s key statements is a two-button single-breaster in navy blue and white pinstripe, in perfect harmony with a light blue button-down shirt. Rounding out the BOSS Black range on the casual side is the “Ceane” jacket in rich lamb leather, designed to be worn with a pair of relaxed denims. The classic accouterments of the sophisticated man – tie pins, pocket squares, watches and eyewear – are all fine-tuned to the total look, and as such integral to every outfit.

Light blue, navy and white lead the way in the season’s palette along with beige, khaki and an array of sand hues. A fuchsia dinner jacket comes complete with the guarantee of a glamorous entrance. The fabrics are light and elegant, with a focus on luxurious wool/cashmere and silk blends.

Key in the accessories are navy blue penny loafers with a companion shopper in exquisite calfskin. A high-shine lace-up with an extended toe makes a strong statement in woven leather. The bags span styles from sumptuous leather workbags through to sporty weekenders.
