Feeling the blues By BERVIN CHEONG email@example.com
NEED a colour to fixate on for the new season? Be sure to make some room for blue in your wardrobe. According to Timberland, it is the defining hue of a thriving, urban beachside and a key trend for spring.
A statement from the brand reads: “It’s prevalent everywhere, especially throughout a beautiful day exploring an exciting and vibrant city’s waterfront district, and the inspiration for the Portside Blue collection.”
The aesthetic is used in everything from footwear and apparel, to accessories. Described as “rich in colour, texture and style”, the designs shine in a modern and versatile locale – such as a bustling seaside metropolitan. Breathable and brushed fabrics combine for easygoing shapes and provide plenty of potential for layering unique textures like suede and linen. They are considered to be perfect for a great night out after a hard day’s work.
Just consider the Amherst Chukka. It is a classic sneaker, reimagined with versatility in mind from its lightweight construction and fashion- forward styling. Inspired by the mixed media trend, leather is combined with canvas and laces for the ultimate form of comfort.
There is also the Smarts Mountain Coverall with meticulous detailing and authentic vintage finish. This season is all about the blues, so pair the deep indigo hue with a sturdy jean or slim chinos for a tonal, monochromatic look.
Other must- haves include the Ludlow Mountain Linen Blazer. This is for those dressier nights at a seaside get together with friends. The deep, on- trend shade features blue highlights, plus a casual construction of breathable yet durable fabric.
Pulling inspiration from runways and street style, Timberland is presenting the Roslyn Fisherman Sandal. This platform- wedge’s finishing touches comprise a full- grain leather upper and eco- conscious details, like a corkwrapping sourced from renewable cork trees.
