A fashion genre that aptly gets described by a set of three colours that predominantly constitutes it is - Nautical. The geometric precision of stripes, checks and dots combined in a trio of whites, blues and reds, transcends you to the deep seas and to waters and lands where summer never ends. The emotions in the life of a sailor, the stories of valor, celebrations and adventures, the nostalgia of the sea is something an institution like Nautica lives up to. Their philosophy manifests itself in everything - from their collections to their store décor. Which is why, when I was asked to style their S/S'15 collection as part of the #MyNautica campaign, it was a sentiment in itself. Confirming to it's very ideology, the collection is a vibrant mix of colours in polos and the quintessential stripes in tanks, maxis and dresses. What I personally loved in this collection was the experimentation in techniques and the overall modular appeal of the garment (Loved this and this). The collection confirms to the Nautica aesthetics of precision and uniformity in tailoring, while keeping the comfort factor intact.
For this look, I decided to romance the summer whites and added a vertical and horizontal contrast of stripes by way of the tank and the shirt. I added a tinge of red to the look via my lips and hair. Moschino-esque heavy metal and a textural contrast via the bag, I managed to pacify my longingness for the sea. Well, clothes are always a solution. Let's drink to that sailors!
