With names, like Moroccan Oasis, Le club and Riviera you can see how the Augusta Weekend summer collection combines the elegance of rich travel inspired outerwear with the practicality of leisure dressing.
New fabrics, such as matt memory cloth, lightweight crinkle fabrics, cotton twill and linen create an urban yet soft collection of wearable stylish pieces.
While parkas and bomber styles in linen and irisescent metallic make their contemporary debut in this collection colours such as navy, optic white and green remain classical in its selection.
Its bomber styles put a strong emphasis on design details such as oversized rolled collars, eyelets, metal studding and rivets with contrasted zip pulls appearing on outerwear jackets for a more contemporary feel.
Their regatta blue, beacon red and sail white collection is a twist on classic nautical clothing with varied contrasting styles in lighter fabrics such as unlined jackets with more of a casual, relaxed feel. Collars are pulled down, sleeves are rolled up and pockets are oversized to create a designer look at non-designer prices.
New shapes and sizes are introduced this season such as cocoon jackets and the Bedford stripe bomber jacket creating a very modern feel further enhanced through its details such as metal studding. The safari collection features oversized shirts, gilets, waistcoats and wide leg trousers for an even more layered, relaxed approach to summer dressing.
Cardigans appear with gathered collars with a pique knit and tencel cotton mix. Tops come in a selection of polo and T-shirt styles, again with a modern twist while foil and navy print with pops of candy pink appear throughout the separates collection. These can be teamed with a Swarovski crystal back pocket jeans and oversized linen shirts and jackets for a great outdoor, global feel.
