There is a certain way in which a father dresses up. Be it for work, or a casual brunch out with family over the weekend; there is certain flair to his modish sense that defines him from other men in our lives. We can’t help but be swoon away by his charm and adapt that certain sense in our personal style quotient too.
But this post is all about our fathers, so let’s keep it focused on to that only. It’s not just his personal style, but the brands that he opts to propose it that sets in as a great example of style too. There are numerous brands that offer menswear or accessories, but there are selective few that take menswear onto a whole new level and introduce class and finesse to the wearer.
GANT is one such luxury brand that defines menswear with class and sets the style apart from the general ensemble dictations. The brand not only offers formal suits and an array of shirts to choose from, it also offers a wide collection of semi-casual and casual spring summer wardrobe essentials for men.
Breaking the monotonous association of men with shades of black, blue and browns; GANT also offers collection in various other colors like red, pink, green, pastels and yellow. When I thought about gifting my father some style additions to his extended wardrobe, I couldn’t think of a better brand than GANT to do the honors.
Check out the ‘Father’s Day Gifting’ look I decoded from their latest SS’15 collection that I am ideating my dad to wear this father’s day.
Now if you are already charmed by the collection and how stylish it can make any man look, take a look at their collection since I managed to click some photographs at their Select Citywalk store on my visit last week.
This season, GANT’s Spring/Summer collection draws inspiration from the perfect laid back Californian stance creating a new and exciting range of accessories and apparel. The collection entwines the traditional American sportswear and European tailoring with a ‘Cali’ touch to achieve the quintessential west coast style. This season’s vibrant colourful collection ensures that the GANT man is well-dressed in light summer fabrics and playing with colour-block separates while the woman of the season combines safari influenced shirt dresses, collegial prints and the little blue dress. The collection is guaranteed to take you on an epic journey that starts from L.A, continues onboard on a wooden sailing boat along the shores of Big Sur, and ends on the mythical beaches of Carmel.
As the season shifts to warmer weathers, the lightweight fabrics essential like seer-sucker and linen blends are perfectly combined for the hot summer. The collection brings back the simple polo-styles and cargo pants in block and bar stripes. Dress down a pair of tailor cut pants with a baseball jacket, or dress up with a shirt and Oxford blazer in the evening. Hazy afternoons at the beach are best spent in uneven constructed cotton knit with a wider neck crew with tennis-inspired shorts, preppy and sporty items, relaxed fits and soft fabrics. The colour story of SS’15 is infused with the contemporary west coast palette and patterns. The garments are both crispy and well pressed as well as soft and washed out. In other words, the all-weather type of collection wearable from occasion to occasion, from L.A. to Carmel Beach.
