Christian Wijnants’ collection for fall has a riot of colorful checks and stripes that are uplifting in today’s dark times.
A horizontally ribbed roll-collar shirt comes with mint green, light blue, black and white stripes. A diagonally striped black-and-white shirt with a Mandarin collar is paired with trousers decorated with broader diagonal stripes.
As always, Wijnant’s line is chockablock with eye-catching knits, primarily using natural fibers such as merino wool, mohair and alpaca. Some looks are seamless, such as the finely textured olive green sweater.
“What I find very fascinating about knitwear is that you can really create volume and three-dimensional things,” Wijnants said.
Of the easy, wearable pieces, he said: “It’s just a starting point for us with the men’s wear.”
