I know nautical-inspired looks are about as groundbreaking as florals (thanks Miranda Priestly!) for the Spring Summer season but I couldn’t really care less. What is it about a simple Breton tee or equivalent striped garment that screams enviable chic?
It instantly lends an air of assured masculinity whilst also bringing with it a quiet playfulness that saves it from the sartorially boring. Once again, the current SS11 Milan shows proffer everything from fabric innovation (Italo at Calvin Klein) to dramatic proportion-play (Giuliano Fujiwara). Still, it’s the easy luxe of the three below looks from Italian brand, Ermanno Scervino, that have captured my attention and induced unparalleled envy.

The Scervino brand prides itself on its modern interpretation of traditional Made-in-Italy quality craftsmanship. With plunging necklines and asymmetrical cuts, I can only wholeheartedly agree.
