For spring/summer 2013, Russell & Bromley’s menswear collection takes inspiration from both the minimalist, clean lines of the sports luxe trend and the more relaxed shapes of summer traveller chic. Classic shapes have been given a seasonal update with a summery colour palette and statement detailing, seen in styles that include lace-up derbies, loafers, summer boots and leather sandals.|
A sophisticated tone has been created through the use of a tonal, brown-based colour palette, with shades of tan and cocoa combined with understated blue and taupe. These muted colours contrast with the modern flashes of white and colour pops of pillar-box red, cobalt blue and clementine orange that add interest to the range. This colour clash continues in the details with bright lacing, feature soles and contrasting textures giving a twist to traditional styles.
The overall impression is a sophisticated take on off-duty style with preppy overtones seen in its college loafers and casual boat shoes. Simple slip-on deck shoes are enhanced with perforated detailing, woven leather and bold flashes of colour while loafers are offered in an array of colourful suede, two-tone leathers and exotic skins. Team with well-cut trousers or shorts and wear without socks to capture classically preppy style
