Whistles Men’s first collection launched in Autumn last year, offering a “Capsule wardrobe for the Modern Man” – Chunky roll-neck knitwear, crisp white shirts, Selvedge denim, bomber jackets and wool overcoats. A sharp, clean aesthetic for the man who loves fashion but isn’t a slave to the trends.
With the Spring/Summer collection beginning to filter into stores, the collection stays true to it’s interchangeable colour palette of White, Grey, Black and Indigo. However, this season a sprinkling of eye-catching prints and fabric techniques are used to spruce up the collection for the guy looking for something that little bit different.
Two pieces caught my attention, both in a stunning watercolour brush-stroke print. Normally, I am not drawn to bold colours and prints so… hats off to you Whistles!
The first up is a shower-proof Windcheater that pops over the head. Details include a side-zip for easy entry, chest pocket and adjustable hood and waistline. It’s these small details that really make the difference. This jacket is perfect for layering under a leather bomber jacket and especially great for the upcoming festival season!
The second piece is a gorgeously soft cotton and wool blend crew sweater. Details on this include raglan sleeves and flat-locked seams. Perfect for layering on top of a white shirt or under a black trucker jacket.
Whistles Watercolour print is a real statement. I would keep the styling simple by teaming with black sweatpants and white sneakers or selvedge denim and plimsolls for a truly Whistles Man look.
Judging by the SS15 lookbook, there are a few more pieces I shall definitely be adding to the ‘Gotta have it’ list!
