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.

Cur­rently avail­able at tim­ber­land out­lets. For more in­for­ma­tion, visit tim­ber­land. com. my.

Tim­ber­land’s spring/ sum­mer 2016 col­lec­tion is per­fect for loung­ing on the dock­side or roam­ing the city.
