President’s Spring Summer 2016 collection is inspired by pre-war adventure and exploration. This season marks the introduction of a distinctive Indian print, inspired by wallpapers from The Roaring 20s, and a color palette of blue, military fatigue green, red brick, and shades of sand. As always, exceptional textiles are front and center, and among the tactile pleasures of the season are various high-quality Japanese textiles, organic Egyptian cottons, and Italian fabrics from Larusmiani.
This season’s offering includes semi-sartorial jackets in a Japanese selvedge texture, field jackets in Larusmiani cotton, hand-painted bush jackets in gabardine, sleek knitwear in cashmere and silk, refined T-shirts with graphic appliqués – heat-sealed together to create a specific pattern – and checked shirts in Japanese fabrics with bone buttons.
