Spring­TIME SUAVE

Look cool in the heat this spring—ALDO’s SS16 col­lec­tion is play­ful yet pol­ished.

Esquire (Singapore) - - Special Feature -

With its fo­cus on unique sources of in­spi­ra­tion in our ev­ery­day lives, ALDO’s Spring ‘16 cam­paign con­tin­ues its march to­wards in­di­vid­u­al­ity and per­sonal style. Its SS16 men’s col­lec­tion of­fers a di­verse range of sporty, ca­sual and pol­ished looks, with mod­els Sil­viu Tolu, Harry Uzoka and Keisuke Asano fronting the cam­paign.

Play­fully stylised, and with each model a cre­ative na­tive in their own right, the por­traits pho­tographed by Mat­teo Mon­ta­nari chan­nel the sense of fun and imag­i­na­tive­ness that per­me­ate the col­lec­tion.

The col­lec­tion it­self is well-suited to the dy­namic man-on-the-go. From laid­back pool­side par­ties to a G&T on the pa­tio with friends, throw on a pair of th­ese mod­ern leather sandals for a non­cha­lantly breezy style.

With tanned leather straps in place of plas­tic found on the usual pool­side slides, th­ese ca­sual sandals are also highly ver­sa­tile. Pair them with a wo­ven straw hat for a pared-down style on hol­i­day or even pair them with socks and cropped chinos for an on-trend look in­spired by the run­ways.

Af­ter all that loung­ing, pro­fes­sional sorts can also look dap­per at work with ALDO’s pol­ished range of ox­fords, loafers and ca­sual suede der­bies for re­laxed Fri­days. With a nat­u­ral colour pal­ette of taupe, navy, grey and black, th­ese kicks take you any­where from client-fac­ing to faceto-face with your evening date.

Be­tween work and play, you might also want to keep your physique trim. Round­ing off the col­lec­tion then, are fash­ion sneak­ers that com­bine the aes­thetic of a per­for­mance shoe with street chic. The con­trast pan­elling in lux­u­ri­ous suede el­e­vates th­ese guys from street to smart ca­sual, mak­ing them game chang­ers in your wardrobe as you pair them with any­thing from sports gear to tailored suits.
