For Spring & Summer Men’s 2013, Nicole Farhi collaborated with Sunspel(the British underwear label), and created a collection fit for a party at the Playboy Mansion. Underwear as outerwear for menswear is a rarity, yet so wonderful when it’s done.
The look was very light and understated. The (boxer(shorts were very sheer and I was attracted immediately to the white variety. Although, finding a place to wear that and not getting ticketed as a sex offender will be an issue. But at the beach or a pool part with friends? Better make that close friends, because junk will be exposed one way or another. But if worn with an oversized button up and that amazing blue trench coat will do wonders for covering your skivvies!
Pay attention to this design theory, comfort and cool. That’s what it is. The silhouette is perfect for the man of today and of yesteryear. It’s almost as if my grandfather(may he rest in peace) materialized in this collection because, if caught in these looks, he’d be the biggest fan. He was a very stylish old man, and knew the value of a good button up, wool coat and skinny tie! How fashion forward was he? Very. But let’s not bring up the past for now. I’ll save that for an homage to him later on.
For now lets talk about how amazing those pajama pants(fashion scrubs?)are. I think they’d be so comfortable and so amazing if worn with some tall boots or clark chukkas, a button up and a parka(considering I already want to wear them this fall). But the creates piece besides the underwear shorts are the blazer’s with the white lapels. Fabulous and the print is so wallflowery and-pardon my youth, “friggin awesome!”
