From double-breasted suits to patterned wool
The cool Mediterranean breeze has served as the inspiration for Sandro’s latest offering. The Parisian brand’s spring-summer 2020 collection has looked to lightness and colour, with a range that channels US-style workwear and retro elegance.
There is the double-breasted suit with its patterned wool, based on the city trader style, reinterpreted with the lightness of the season. The casual shirts for wearing underneath it might even sport a hand-drawn oval motif.
In terms of footwear, a pair of grained leather shoes are ideal. Match with darted trousers, worn at the waist, a loose shirt and an openwork vest for the ultimate summery touch. When the beach or the water calls, black bathing suit shorts can be worn with a retro cream-coloured knit polo. The colour palette is reminiscent of old films, with sun-faded colours of soft pink, cerulean blue and tobacco brown.
As well as its homage to the Mediterranean lifestyle, the studio is demonstrating an attachment to vintage pieces – zippered worker’s shirts in textured cotton, vintage brown leather aviator jackets, vintage stripped knits and Hawaiian shirts among them.
Look for the collection in Sandro stores. In Dubai, these can be found in Mall of the Emirates, Dubai Mall, City Walk and The Outlet Mall.
