Tweed for Winter, linen for Summer. This is somewhat of a #menswear standard (especially in a country like Sweden where the climate is shifting so drastically over seasons). As much as one loves seasonal pieces which are put to rest during certain parts of the year, we often feel that people are focusing slightly too much on overly seasonal garments.
The atelier is putting emphasize on the “three-season-rule”; meaning that we focus on garments that can be worn for at least three seasons a year. But what are the colors, materials and textures suitable for such a garment?
The bold over checks and accent colors are fun occasionally, although, over time these garments are more likely to make you feel guilty for buying them in the first place. A slightly lighter blue or grey for Spring/Summer and colder tones of beige and brown. These shape a color scheme versatile enough for three season usage. In the Winter/Autumn we can stay with the same type of colors, however, adjusting the greys and blues to a darker tone while letting the beige and browns becoming slightly warmer in terms of tone. These small adjustments might seem like nothing up front, although, these are the changes making all the difference while keeping your wardrobe tight.
Stay tuned as we keep the discussion going on the atelier JOURNAL on the three season subject. Next up: texture and fabric. Inquiries and appointments as per usual via firstname.lastname@example.org.
