City Sailor. This sailor cuts an elegant figures as he navigates the metropolitan boulevards. His wardrobe is full of timeless articles updated by touches of colour borrowed by nautical signals and adapted to his daily style. With an eye constantly on the horizon, this is tradition and seafaring spirit, with sweaters reminiscent of military tricots from early last century, work trousers graced by details worthy of uniforms, and shoes from the Captain's locker, transformed by an ageing treatment.
White and blue with flashes of nautical signal yellow. Marina Yachting's City Sailor makes a spectacular entrance with his double-sided cotton Pickot, stretch trousers with embroidery on the inside and contrasting piping, anchor rivets instead of buttons, loose-knit fisherman sweater, washed T-shirt with graffiti and military style canvas shoes with vulcanised soles. Coming ashore in style, he sports a yellow waxed deep-sea fishing jacket over his impeccable poplin shirt, or a faded American jersey safari jacket. His Blazer is classic, with stripes gracing a new-generation waxed cotton, ideal for the high seas but also perfectly cool and pleasing in the stuffy city heat. Yellow conjures up sunshine even if the weather isn't exactly a summer holiday. Antiqued details produce a retro flavour but with a modern twist.
A regatta of colours. On weekends, our City Sailor actually sails. His classic yachting style means an electric indigo, bright orange and Yacht Club red. Ivory and blue provide a platform for the colour-blocking designs characterizing the sweatshirts, urban-version waxed technical jackets, polo shirts, university cardigans, suede or cotton deck moccasins with a logo on the heel and sail bags fastened with painters. The Sailor wind jacket is reversible and has a contrasting cord drawstring and sail number 1972, a playful allusion to the brand's year of birth.
Cream and blue with embroidery and coats of arms, sand and putty colours and a Sixties khaki. Stripes play a primary role here, in all sizes and on the whole range of fabrics. Every garment reveals a detail: the under-collars in the piquet shirts, patches on the polos, braid on the lining of the ultra-lightweight trench coats, ribbon in the multi-pocket linen jackets, blue, indigo and pale denim mélange in the used-effect trousers, contrasting stitching on icy greys enlivened by red profiling. The Parka is deliberately creasy looking, as befits a seasoned globetrotter. Outerwear is often reversible for greater versatility.
In the Beach line, the swimming boxers have been old-washed to give the impression of sea salt and fade the otherwise luxuriant colours. The season's beach, in fact, is lobster, cherry, mint, turquoise and mango. White and grey grounds are used in the faded polo shirts, beach towels, canvas moccasins (with cotton profiling) and colourful waxed bags.
CromoStile. Marine elegance explores colour. A summer of subtle yet brilliant details and a leit motif of blue and white enlivened by tones borrowed from nautical signals.
The curtain rising on summer 2013, from Saint-Tropez to Positano, is made of satin-finish lacquer, memory taffeta and waxed cotton. A single style runs throughout the line.The iconic blue Pickot conceals and reveals marker-buoy yellow hems. Instead of the spring raincoat, a cape that entertains with its bright daytime yellow and rigorous evening blue. The duffel coat hugs closer at the waist and graces the male model with a charming half-belt, while the women's version of the military flavour parka has become super-slim. Seafaring stripes, whether visible or concealed, bows and ribbons alongside naval pips, braiding fastened with frogs and boat necks.
Iridescent nuances of shantung-effect nylon, from wisteria to geranium red, form a purple rain of tones captured in a flower garden. The Marina Yachting woman's sporty attitude is based on urban dynamism and coloured by sailing details. Lots of jersey fabric, colour-blocking in the reversible bomber jackets, half-sleeve blouse-parkas, hot-pant bermudas and graphic knits.
The heart of Marina Yachting style: gold colour cotton inserts, braid, lurex threads running surreptitiously through sartorial weaves, broaches with cross stitch anchors standing out like medals. The key fabric here is cotton seersucker, as in the vintage-effect striped micro-jacket, the mignon safari with ¾ sleeves, the washed satin biker jacket with a bulky gold zip, the military-style but sensual skirt made of stretch gabardine, the pin-up shorts and cigarette-fit trousers. Naval emblems adorn jacquard fabrics in the shirts, knits and dresses and point up plunging backs, corsetry lacing and bands of printed patterns.
Vibrant fruit tones on white grounds define ultra-lightweight quilted jackets and jersey knit micro tops with studs, rhinestones, rouches and contrasting piping and embroidery. Mini-bomber jackets go over a range of striped and spotted T-shirts sporting original applications. Grosgrain, cotton, decorative zips and metallic contaminations form a palette of striking effects. Mustard, gold, bronze, earth, tobacco and sand blend and accompany the light blues of the sea.
A whole suitcase full of pink: hot pants and beach chemise, raffia-effect tricot knits and clouds of muslin. Gold prints, straw hats, silk scarves, sea-bags with rope handles, sandals and wooden clogs with sailors rings, flat shoes and cork wedges. Stripes and soap-bubble dots of various sizes drift across cottons, impalpable linens and transparent gauzes.
We wore sailor suits…… Retro allure with a very new feel. Timeless elegance to wear in a summer of revivals that’s never nostalgic, and always rich in style. The Marina Yachting woman dresses for the sea but not only by the sea.
White and blue, with digressions into beige and shades of rope, sand and wood. Grosgrain tape lies concealed but always ready to surprise, gilded metal details, stripes on hems and necks. A new austerity that nods to indulgence with extreme savoir faire. The Pickot, emblem of the collection, is stretch gabardine for new wearability. The Vega, in a micro version, is noticeably shorter. The Mariner blazer, interpreting male rigour but with different forms, joins the Namar, a cotton and nylon mini-parka with a hood. The latest rain-jacket, the Hamal, is perfect for any journey, whether in the cotton and nylon or ultra-lightweight nylon version: the collar hides the hood under a zip. The Pakos, a passe-partout duster coat, has a thin striped undercollar, while the Deneb nylon parka has been given new and modern volume. Another novelty: the multi-purpose summer trench, blue with stripes inside: an exclusive sea-inspired print.
In the knitwear, plain colours alternate judiciously with stripes of varying dimensions: harmonious asymmetries, bold borders and sailor necks on polos, T-shirts and cardigans but also the small dresses, with ribbons and metal buttons. Sailor pockets on the shorts and minis, while the trousers taper and stop at the ankles.
A rope coloured base is accompanied by ocean blue, coral, khaki and white. Home ground here is sport, with the comfort of jersey jump suits and piquet polo shorts, in a “leisure” wardrobe characterized by the embroidered logo. Puckerings and leather finishes on the jackets to ensure a metropolitan twist to the look. The wind-proof Sailor is made of two-tone reversible nylon: urban khaki on one side, bright coral on the other for some glamour on holiday. The dresses are “easy” and spirited, with boat necks and drawstrings at the more strategic points.
A “capsule collection” to re-assert the brand’s strong identity: a handful of striking pieces. White and blue, with Yacht Club red alongside. Micro-volumes dedicated to women more openly attracted by the world of fashion: the fitted white denim jacket with three-quarter sleeves and gilt buttons, linings graced by the exclusive tiny anchor pattern, and the “marine rock” jackets that pay tribute to antique uniforms but have an extremely modern flavour. Gold is one of the threads running through this collection, in metallic buttons and military ribbon, like old insignia. Vivacious and ironic, a puff of poplin bares the shoulders: micro volumes and macro stripes, helms printed on scarves recalling the sophisticated atmosphere of East Coast holidays in the ‘60s. Like the “à la Jackie” Oxford shirts and striped top, which indulges in a bow at the back of the neck and a bare back.
Dynamic and gutsy, with a sport attitude and urban versatility. White, red and blue, from the super-stretch denims through to the “pima” cotton gabardine prized for its long, smooth, fine and particularly lustrous fibres. Ribbons like rosettes, a sleight of hand to personalize forms.
In the more urban garments, the colour palette ranges from white to tropical jungle mud, with flashes of coral from local waters. This is a complete, multi-facetted wardrobe that can flip from the “last few days in the office” to the most unashamedly chic beaches in the Mediterranean: the jackets have new cuts that point up the waist to relaunch the style of a woman who loves a really modern and feminine look. In the knitwear too, the silhouette is highlighted, low cuts create space for sensuality, the polos are feminine with deep necklines, rouches and puckered necks. And there’s a generous offering of “comfortable” little dresses made of cotton knit and stretch poplin.
The sea has all the nuances of blue, as well as lemon yellow, the true colour against the heat. Macro dots and elaborate stripes, imperceptible weights and floral sangallo lace prints. Beach robes and sundresses, voile smocks and balloon shirts, muslins and linens cool as a breeze and rendered unique by hand embroidery and hardstone. The accessories are chic and round out the collection nicely: silk bandanas, linen scarves and sashes, hats of various types and striped canvas bags with rope handles, splendid looking under the sun umbrella. Summer is simple, simply “Marina”.
