Men’s fashion on the go: 3 new collections for the frequent flyer
Boss, Moncler and Ermenegildo Zegna present three travel-ready kits for the frequent jetsetter.
01: GLOBAL GEAR
Forget having to ask the concierge for help with de-wrinkling your suitcase of clothing when you arrive at your destination. Boss’s Travel Line focuses on clothing that is resistant to creases, while looking sharp and being breathable. Suits, for instance, are crafted from a wool blend with exceptional lightness and stretch, and feature stripped-down construction that allows for easy movement. Comfy trousers made from jersey fabric, on the other hand, are tailored for a dressier, work-ready cut. Also worth packing: Business shirts made from cotton enriched with aloe (and here we thought the stuff was just good for soothing burns); they don’t wrinkle easily, and stay crisp yet comfy.
02: BEYOND SKIN DEEP
As its name suggests, Ermenegildo Zegna’s latest capsule collection is meant to be comfortable, effortless and functional. The Second Skin range comprises lightweight pieces that can be easily layered for cooler weather or worn on their own when the temperature rises. The stars of the travel-ready collection are jackets, with our favourite being a light wool-and-silk blend blouson with a varsity-style knit collar, and cuff s in a versatile blue-grey. The rest of the range includes smartly relaxed items such as polo shirts, shirts, trousers and denim, done in complementary colours such as off-white, teal, navy, brown and light grey.
03: TAKE A TRIP
This season, premium skiwear and lifestyle brand Moncler has introduced a series of Postcards that are meant to be kept for yourself, rather than sent to your nearest and dearest. The Postcards capsule series was created in collaboration with Paris-based artist Jean-Philippe Delhomme, who created three exclusive prints inspired by famous seaside locales such as Venice Beach, Saint-Tropez, Capri and Positano. Quirky, artistic and fun, the colourful prints are featured on items such as tees, jackets and totes.
