Nautica unveils South Pacific inspired batik print attires

Nautica travels to the Australian coastline for its Men’s Sportswear Summer 2014 Collection.
 
Heavily influenced by the tropical and batik prints along the South Pacific and its juxtaposition with clean Indigo and White hues throughout, this season brings a fresh, modern, and unique take on Nautical.
 
“The Nautica brand is rooted in its inspiration by the water,” said Creative Director, Chris Cox, “and this season, it is the rich colorful scenes and understated sophisticated lifestyle of the Mediterranean that drives the collection.”
 
Men’s collection highlights:
The South Pacific delivery continues to take you to the water as summer approaches.  Colors still pop with names like Flame Red, Aruba Blue and Beach Plum.  Swim trunks burst with prints - florals, bamboo stalks, fish, and yarn dyed madras. Fabrics remain light, with linen and cottons mixed throughout.  
 
Oxford knits are prominent in this delivery, along with linen textured sweaters. Nautical stripes stake their claim on polos and wovens, while seersucker crops up in blazers and shorts.  It’s a spring collection that will take you across the world to the Mediterranean and one you will never forget.
 
Indigo Isle continues to feature an array of prints, turning to more ethnic-inspired and asian influences, with a base palette of deep indigos, black, and white.  A variety of long sleeve chambray wovens are featured in solids, stripes and ikat prints, while short sleeve wovens come in other geometric prints, like the “X-hatch”, “Tribe Print”, and “Medallion Polo” - all modern takes on global prints.  Dip dying is prominent and found on crews and hoodies, and pieced colorblocks continue to be a mainstay.   
 
Summer really starts to heat up with Guard. This performance delivery, inspired by the Nautica brand’s partnership with the USLA Championships and the needs of the waterman, is modern, functional, and comes in bright neons and clean colors.  Tech fabrics are used throughout, like nylon, spandex, and performance stretch.  
 
Shirts are made for the active, with wicking and back vents. Thick scuba-inspired hooded jackets in black and white keep you warm, and compliment the bright burst of turquoise, yellow, and pink neon swimwear.  Silhouettes are modern and shorter for the real performance guy.
