It might be time to say goodbye to the winter blues as we welcome spring and summer, but Thomas Pink is singing in the new season with the blues…navy, denim, indigo, teal, cobalt, cornflower and dazzling Peacock blue, to be specific, all of which hint at the cloudless blue skies, cool blue pools and azure ocean waters that lay ahead as the weather warms.
Thomas Pink’s new men’s collection is a heady mix of London’s well known landmarks, motifs and characters. From Sir Michael Caine in the 1971 film ‘Get Carter’ to The Coach and Horses pub in Soho, the collection draws upon urban influences to create an aesthetic that is daringly bold and eclectic in style. The monochromic palette in shades of blue and grey celebrates Caine’s famous pared back style, with typically Pink punctuations of mustard and raspberry.
The new collection plays with weaves and texture to offer solid colours with subtle design features and added intrigue, with checks and herringbone playing a pivotal role throughout.
Must-have shirts include The Davenport, “a small Puppytooth weave”; The Gibson, a fine satin twill; and the absolute hero of the new season, the Italian weave Caldicot in indigo – a washed Chambray shirt in 80s two fold cotton that stylishly blurs the boundaries between formal and casual.
The collection also reflects the edginess of the urban metropolis, with the blue colour palette giving way to traces of raspberry that deepens to red, mustard that intensifies to amber, and hues of green that pay homage to nature’s revival in spring. Shirting in fine Italian fabrics include The Edward, a window-pane check inspired by London’s iconic red telephone boxes; The Bedford, a complex herringbone weave; and The Finlay, a soft collar brushed poplin with amber overcheck.
In shirting, spots and exaggerated Prince of Wales checks in bold saturated colours start to appear, while a super modern dark tartan shirt with bright highlights in an innovative ‘breathable’ fabric provides a point to the season.
Whichever hue of blue you choose to wear this season, it doesn’t matter, as long as it’s Pink!
