“Quiet color blocking” was an apt description of Baartmans and Siegel this season. A navy-moss green story played out in a suit jacket with sporty zip pockets that was navy from the front with the contrast panel visible only from behind, or in a perforated suede bomber with contrast sleeves. “We wanted the collection to be utilitarian, but still have that league or tribe feeling, sporty but approachable,” said Amber Siegel, who designs the collection with Wouter Baartmans.
Considered detailing included detachable hoods and breathable linings. “Men are now demanding that versatility and day-to-night thing in their clothing that women’s wear already does so well,” Siegel said.
