The love affair between Nautica and the seafaring life continued to move ahead under men’s creative director Steve McSween. “This is the modern Riviera,” he said. “We’re imagining a tailored traveler and the balance between sport and leisure in his life.”
There was a hint of “The Talented Mr. Ripley” in a white stretch linen blazer, while Cary Grant’s style made an appearance in a cotton silk jersey shirt. The reintroduction of heritage pieces, such as a navy and white razor jacket and a stretch nylon anorak were among the highlights of the elevated offering.
McSween also collaborated with Seabags on an assortment of carryalls as well as one-of-a-kind outerwear pieces created from the company’s vintage sails.
“They’re one-offs, but they inspire the rest of the collection,” he said.
