Thomas Pink SS16 Menswear

Thomas Pink unveiled its Spring/Summer 2016 collection at the Institute of Contemporary Arts, as part of London Collections Men.

Presented against a botanical backdrop, more potting shed than conservatory, the collection was showcased on models and mannequins.

The collection captures the nonchalant mood of the ’90s Brit Pop era – famed for its style-icon musicians and hedonism. Brighten up your summer day races and make a sartorial statement with a rebellious twist by merging the traditional tailored silhouettes with a punchy colour palette: spanning from indigo, pink, to turquoise and citrus.

The collection also draws inspiration from Scotland, where, when the sun comes out, vibrant colours reflect off the magnificent landscape and blue skies, inspiring a modern take on tartans and plaids with shirting and accessories in tattersall and blown-up madras checks.

Lightweight outerwear comprises a deconstructed wool navy blazer with shirt fabric lining, a summer tweed linen blazer and a new reversible jacket in light grey ticking stripe with a shell camouflage interior – a spring summer highlight.

A British summer always needs an option for rainy days, in this case a reversible rain Mac in Prince of Wales check and brown.

The season finale is inspired by the archetypal seaside resort of Blackpool – with its promenade, piers, fortune-tellers, fairground rides and tattoo parlours. A colour palette of citrus, candy floss pink, turquoise, sky blue and lilac echoes the town’s bright carnival mood, perfectly captured in linen shirting.

Shirts, ties, silk pocket squares and socks featuring swallow and heart motives and candy stripes perfectly capture the essence of the iconic seaside town.
