And that leads me onto arguably the men’s brand of the decade. Gucci. Oh how far it has come. The 2010 show is everything I had come to expect from the Italian brands of old. White skinny jeans, tan leather jackets and loafers with no socks. But then in 2015, Alessandro Michele was appointed Creative Director and there was an explosion.
From Balmain's boating blazers to Thom Browne's ticking, it seems everyone is drawing inspiration from deck chairs. Paul Smith's bengal striped shirts are the smartest way to incorporate this Summer trend into a city wardrobe.
Given that this is the UK and Summer pretty much consists of 4 days in June, don't put away your coats just yet. When worn over lighter layers, or even just a t-shirt, that duster coat can be worn all year round.
