The global traveler: dressed and ready for everything modern life demands
BOSS Menswear for Fall/Winter is inspired by the global traveler, who needs the attire for any place or situation he might find himself in. This season presents a journey from the easy-going surroundings of the coast, through the busy city and out to the colder climes of a mountain retreat, where keeping warm in style is essential. In a time where the lines between dressing for business and for leisure are increasingly blurred, the collection is set for travel, both on and off duty. This is menswear ready for everything that modern life demands.
The ability to transition seamlessly is a focus – be it temperature or situation. Styles look sharp, but offer the comfort required by fast-paced lifestyles. A nautical theme, often with collegiate details, offers a freshness and ease that is ultimately sartorial. Expect clean stripes, a palette of navy with burgundy, sports coats and college patch details.
Signature suits are ready for time on the go in the city. Tailoring is mixed with sportswear in both styling and in design – think an overcoat with a track top, or wideleg tailored pants with a drawstring waist. There’s even a jersey suit, offering all the comfort of a tracksuit, but with a clean, tailored look. Sharp-cut wool coats, leather and fabric-mix bomber jackets and trench coats in lightweight nylon add an allimportant final layer, which is both protective and perfectly sartorial.
New silhouettes step into the spotlight for Fall/Winter 2017. Double-breasted designs emerge alongside oversized shapes created by soft-shouldered jackets and looser tailored pants for a more relaxed attitude than ever before.
Made in Germany, in an exclusive limited edition, a packable suit is the ultimate way to travel in style. Its stripped-back internal construction and performance fabric allow it to be folded away without creasing and crumpling, while the new stretch craftsmanship allows for superior comfort in wear. A new stretch lining is paired with 100% wool stretch outer cloth, the two working in perfect harmony to reduce restriction and enhance movement from the inside out. When venturing out into the cold, the look is completed with ultra-lightweight down jackets in a range of colors, which can be packed away into their own practical pouches.
Inspired by harsher environments, utility details make an appearance in the final part of the journey. Ensuring warmth, a standout chunky Aran knit is intricately crafted; a luxe boiled-wool sweater features three buttoned pockets placed on the chest and a polo neck fastens to the top with metal snap buttons. Parkas are thrown over tailoring, while new interpretations of hiking boots and thick-soled brogues are ready for more utilitarian travel.
The color palette is deep with all the sartorial classics covered – dark navy blues, burgundy, black, grey and brown, highlighted with orange and red. Neutrals also play a part, presenting shades of beige, camel and white.
So let the journey begin. With the new Fall/Winter 2017 collection, no matter where the BOSS man travels, he will most certainly never be lost when it comes to style.
