INDX Menswear SS19: Summer Vibes: Live All Your Adventures in Comfort
Summer is calling; the gentle, warm season with the uncanny ability to make you want more, but so much less, out of life. The days are longer, the vibes are more carefree and the ability to truly relax, disconnect and unwind seems more realistic. The sand is beneath your feet and the wind’s got your back. You soak up the love and warmth of the sun and leave your phone in your pocket because no smartphone could ever capture the breadth of the water nor the fresh, salty aroma that wafts through the air. You’re hearing the thriving music of the Big Band Era in one ear and the mood-setting melodies of surfer boys in the other. Everyone's hearts are beating with the same cadence of the unpredictable blue waters that connect us all and you feel your values shifting. This exuberant feeling of summertime tranquility isn’t just from an extra dose of sunshine. Instead, it resonates with your desire to connect with yourself, with people and the earth.
As you reach out more than ever to the people you love and the world in which you live, you're redefining what it means to get ahead -- through love, solidarity and a connection to what's real. Teetering between the familiar and faraway, you’re choosing to let go of your reliance on the devices that rule the world and choosing to be your best self instead. Your quest for a healthy existence breeds the powerful resonance of your beating heart and echoes the pounding ocean waves. You're done with scrolling through selfies. You're ready to connect to the people who love you and find out how their lives are going - and being there to see the unfiltered expressions on their faces
Seasonal Cotton Stretch welcomes a splash of summertime with three new pattern and colour schemes that embody the tranquil vibes of warm weather and sweet ocean air. Mineral Aqua Blue, Dark Denim Gray and a striped combination of the hues in between give an easy, breezy feel that resonates with Free Waves. Escape to your staycation with either solid or a plaid combination of Sherbet Orange and Stormy Denim, which all feature complimenting stripes on the signature comfort waistband - just beachy. An ode to Shades of Blue features a plaid-based myriad of Bel Air Sky and shades of Royal blue, along with all-over colours of each. Colours and patterns decorating brief, short trunk and boxer trunk silhouettes are available in 3 or single packs.
Seasonal Sport Microfiber Active exhibits a modern take on the excitement of retro with three versions 2-Pack briefs, short trunks and boxer trunks. A Flintstone Gray solid print and an electric blue constellation-style print overlay partner, both boasting a wave crest white waistband. Deep navy stands alone and behind a multi-colored triangle print with bright, seafoam aqua waistbands. Deep and ocean-inspired Paradise Blue is available in a solid and a checkerboard-like pattern sprinkled with a contemporary ombre effect.
Modern Beach has become Active, with three new silhouettes that effortlessly combine function with fashion. Long shorts with side pockets and the freedom of a drawstring waist team up with a swim brief and short trunk to provide weather-resistant, easy-stretch options for layers of versatile swimwear.
New core colours and prints join Shirts and Shorts to give classic styles a trendy upgrade. Blues are here to stay with Stripe and Check Woven Boxers welcoming a Galaxy indigo-and-white addition. Two new boxer 2-Packs give new meaning to the joys of more choices, with a stylish Sky Blue and white paisley print and a white-with-stripes companion, as well as a Deep Ocean Blue-based pair boasting a discreet diamond-shape print and stripes. If you’re looking for a more nondescript boxer selection, two new patterns offer a more simple and carefree approach to boxer comfort. Relax in a white, light blue or deep navy solid featuring barely-there speckle designs. Pair your new boxers with a fresh take on a breezy basic with new light blue tees and long shirts, as welcoming as a cloudless summer sky. Just Squared pyjama sets and boxer shorts offer gentle check prints on super-soft hand feel material that doesn’t need the ironing, making them as effortless as your summer afternoon and as comfortable as a lay in a seaside hammock.
Explore more nightwear and lounge options for after the sun sets with fresh silhouettes, colours and prints for all things loungewear. Set your solid navy knits aside and reinvent and unwind with Night & Day’s two new plaids, stripes or an allover paisley print. With easy versatility in mind, styles include pants, shorts & pyjama sets for however low the summer evening temperature may drop. New, 100% Supima Cotton pyjama sets boast a subtle Full boy breast pocket logo and the finest quality cotton in the world in cool ocean and sky blue colours. If your summer voyage is away from warm weather, pack your quick-drying Merino thermals to wrap yourself in the warmth and comfort of Merino wool, with just a hint of polyamide for breathability and elastane for ease of movement without being too stretchy. Even if you’re on the go, make sure to give your feet a rest with new cotton-rich, casual socks. Available in 3Pack navy and grey stripes or grey and black variety packs, these socks are suitable for an extra layer under those hiking books across a tropical terrain or under your wing tips to impress your beach-side dinner date. Finally, when the sun sets and your day is finally at it’s blissful end, relax in the first class workmanship of the newest addition to Soft Wash Wovens: a minimalistic stripe pyjama set with a subtle denim feeling giving 100% cotton comfort a stylish, midsummer upgrade. Sweet dreams.
