UNITED COLORS OF BENETTON SPRING/SUMMER 2006 MEN’S COLLECTION

UNITED COLORS OF BENETTON SPRING/SUMMER 2006


MEN’S COLLECTION

United Colors of Benetton’s collections for men are becoming more and more fashion-conscious. The Spring Summer 2006 raises the bar of male elegance: easy and breezy young styles permeated with a very special allure.

UP STREET, destructured elegance with casual hints. Chiefly white and beige, with pink, pale blue and grey for shirts. Close-fitting lines made supremely wearable through the use of soft, floppy fabrics: plain-coloured linen, cotton or gabardine, pinstripes or Prince of Wales check. Suits with tailored two-button jackets, and separates with easy-wear blazers. Shirt-jackets with patch pockets and crisp, straight trousers, or jeans with a moderately worn look. Yarn-dyed shirts; simple pastel knitwear in light wool or cotton jersey.

SPRING FORWARD, urban theme based on treated cotton and denim. The mood is casual but charming; basic, slim-fit trousers are worn with feather-light cotton yarn in strawberry, mint, plum, sunny yellow. The same colours are used for vintage blazers and thin-striped, yarn-dyed shirts.

TRAINING CAMP, a casual theme with army touches seen in the colour palette and minimum details "according to regulations": cotton or denim soft, multi-pocket trousers; T-shirts with in-theme script motifs. The rest is pacific and pacifist: light cotton windcheaters, light hooded sweatshirts, loose shirts with pale-coloured stripes and tiny checks, shirt-collar blazers of heavy cotton. A range of base-camp greens and beiges mixed with pink, fuchsia and purple.

CARIBBEAN LOVE, a leisurely, almost nautical atmosphere. Hawaiian script motifs on T-shirts worn at least two together in bright and soft shades: pink and fuchsia, aqua and turquoise, orange and apricot, bright yellow and lime. Soft, slightly baggy trousers of light, faded denim are worn with floral or check shirts and even with classic-cut blazers that are, however, made of jersey. Long shorts that hover somewhere between pedal pushers and Bermudas, with large pockets and a low waist.

ACCESSORIES AND FOOTWEAR

Accessories in pole position in the race to create a United Colors of Benetton total look. Practical or decorative complementary articles whose creative content, dynamism and sense of humour give greater breadth to distinctive style codes.


The top bag style for him is a flat, canvas or nylon shoulder bag with leather details in army colours. For those with a lot of baggage, there are extra-long canvas backpacks with studs and pockets. World travellers use unisex luggage: gathered, branded nylon or in soft and rigid leather in brilliant colours. Anti-impact design for the work/travel range; textured nylon in black and acid tones.

And on the feet? Sneakers, the timeless classic, and cross-over leather sandals with a colonial feel. Also, moccasins in unusual pastel shades.
Baseball caps in all colours; panamas worthy of a dandy; belts of leather decorated with nautical knots, or patchwork ribbons or engraved leather. These complete the range of men’s accessories, not forgetting the ties in plain colours or jacquard or with tiny embroidery in clear candy colours.
