Sexy sailors will flood the high streets, as designer ranges, such as the Spring/Summer 10’ Gant shirts, kick off the trend ‘nautical’.
For women, the nautical look has been fluttering on and off the catwalks for a few seasons now. Every Spring / Summer collection in the designer world seems to include a little striped number here and there. But for men, it’s only just beginning. Gant Shirts are kicking off the ‘élan’ style, and it won’t be before long that the high street gets a whiff of the craze.
High street stores have long been imitating designer fashions, and despite Gok Wan’s Fashion Fix trying to prove that high street clobber can look just as great as high-end labels, designer collections, such as Gant shirts, will always have that edge.
All Aboard for Nautical Gant Shirts – Get The Look!
Michael Bastian’s Gant range was born to inject a fresher look, one that could be seen as the ‘petit frère’ of the sophisticated Bastian clothing collection. With its vibrant colours, casual styles and athletic edge, Gant became the perfect ‘dais’ for sharing the sexy seaborne style, that men all over the UK are embracing as we enter into Summer 2010.
Gant shirts have offered a softer look for men who like to work their metro-sexual side, with fine cuts and mellifluous patterns.
Red, Blue, Whites and Off-Whites
The nautical look is distinguishable from all other styles by its use of primary colours and neutral base colours. Whites and off-whites symbolise the innocence of the summer seafarer, and bold red and white stripes acts a sailor’s crest. As well as the nautical look, Gant shirts also apply American-style preppy designs, feminine pastels for the 1950s gentleman, and stylish denim for the casual weekend look.
Gant Shirts – A Trend of its Own
As the quirkier little brother of Michael Bastian, Gant has become a highly regarded niche label, exclusively available from the finest retailers around. Both Michael Bastian clothing and Gant shirts are found only in the best high-end designer clothing shops, many of these with traditional values that have both pioneered and preserved the success of their businesses.
