For SS16 the Debenhams menswear collection offers confident, wearable and masculine styles with vibrant summer prints juxtaposing against perfectly cut tailoring; offering something for the everyman.
Hammond & Co. by Patrick Grant evokes the feeling of weekend excursions for the ‘dapper gentleman.’ Hero pieces include the navy short linen basket weave cotton suit, which can be teamed with printed and abstract shirts. To complete the look, the range also offers luxurious accessories from watches to weekend holdalls.
Building on Jasper Conran’s clean aesthetic, timeless pieces are brought to the fore through minimalistic macs for those cool spring days. Formal button down Oxford and Bengal stripe shirts lend a chic elegance to an otherwise classic staple.
RJR. John Rocha's relaxed spring look has a balance of fun, function and practicality. Neutrals tones with khaki and brown are highlighted by green, blush and rose. Nature inspired prints help convey the outdoor theme while pack-away blazers allow for a smarter practical option.
For the classic yet contemporary man, Jeff Banks ensures simple basics are punctuated through the use of vibrant hues with tones of pink, berry and plum. Stand out items include the beige linen three piece suit with a key focus on the suede driving shoes in accessories.
Mantaray from Debenhams own brand focuses on bright and playful prints. Colours are saturated and sun bleached through all the key categories; Cargo shorts, graphic tee’s with costal inspired prints.
Red Herring Casual works two trends in tandem with sports luxe and neutral, ensuring stylish sportswear isn’t confined to the gym. Textured jersey is apparent in joggers; tee’s and sweats with an array of sporty greys, indigo pastel pink and jade.
Red Herring smart has been simplified whilst maintaining a modern silhouette. Neutral tones with shades of greys and black keep the colour palette low key as do the geometric shirts & window pane knits.
