First look

AW16 Men's collection

02 Sep

Day Breaks

September marks the official start of autumn and we’re kitting out in-store and online with a fresh men's collection for the new season. Taking a minimalist approach, Day Breaks is our first edit for men, built around a greyscale colour palette, warmed by richer tones of olive and burgundy.

Early autumn days can still be pretty mellow so a short sleeve shirt should be in the line-up. The Turn is a midweight cotton Oxford, given a tidy little update with our new feature print for men. A button down collar and chambray detailing complete the look. Pair up with our worn-well denims; Pelus for a slim fit dark wash jean, or the Pierre gives a straight cut option.

Day Breaks - Autumn 2016 Men's Collection - Turn short sleeve shirt

Turn short sleeve shirt: £40

Clean lines, simple typography and subtle branding bring a fresh feel to tops and sweats. The Navigate tee is from the ANML Series. Inspired by the freeride mindset, this forms a toned-back capsule collection, using premium fabrics in industrial shades, with a restrained aesthetic. Alternatively, inject a little colour with the Longtide tee in a strong teal blue. Layer up on cooler days with the Payne Crew; a proper design classic, featuring ribbing to hem and cuffs and understated tab branding.

As chill winds blow in, long sleeve tops are made essential. The Hex sees the return of Animal’s signature British camo, with a new twist for AW16. Pair up with the Throwback backpack; low profile with large internal compartment and padded laptop sleeve for college or workplace functionality.

For a more heritage feel, the Escapes backpack mixes traditional knapsack styling with modern functionality. A wool textured finish, classic double strap fastening and cinch top are balanced by the internal padded laptop sleeve and big carrying capacity—making this a bag to meet all requirements. Finish off with the Kenton flat peak, slick in black with mono branding.
