The DAKS Spring Summer 2015 collection takes its inspiration from a tour around the beautiful island of Sicily.
The journey starts in the bustling city of Palermo, the islands financial hub. It is here we took inspiration from the sharply cut men’s suiting, combining it with the tradition and style of the travelling gentleman. For men the sartorial flair is emphasised through double breasted jackets using subtle tonal stripes. For women the look is fitted with use of super light and stretchy wool.
For our second inspiration, we visit Taormina, a favourite with writers and artists since 19th century. It sees sophisticated casual tailoring that is fabricated in light wool and crispy cottons in the menswear collection and smart casual styles with elegant dresses and great use of cotton voile in the womenswear collection.
Our final destination is Panarea, a tiny island off the north coast of Sicily, which has quietly become the epicentre of the chicest summer scene in the Mediterranean and we have created the perfect wardrobe for this.
