Blue, was there ever a colour so important and so regal?
For me it’s the core of each Studio Nicholson collection, more likely because every men’s collection is grounded in blue. It is a colour that I never tire of exploring, the most well thumbed pages in my pantone chip fabric specifier are the pages from periwinkle blue to dark blue blacks. Blue quite literally charms the pants off me and calms all when the world seems awry. Its a colour that is rooted firmly in menswear.
This month Lord Snowdon and Acne have collaborated on an exhibition ‘Snowdon Blue’ of sixty portraits and a limited addition book inspired by the blue shirts in Snowdon’s photographs. Acne has created a limited collection of men’s blue shirts that you will find at Dover street this month before the exhibition moves on to Paris, New York and Stockholm.
Our Spring Summer 2012 collection is a smorgasbord of Indigo’s and Blues, inspired by holidays with my family in North Devon – specifically my Grandfathers beaten up ‘Boat Coat’ with its faded indigo liner.
Here for you is my edit of the Studio Nicholson Summer Blues from Ink, Airforce and Indigo to sky. All available from our online store.
