Sandro Homme SS18 collection celebrates 10 years of style
The Parisians do dress well. It has to be said. A nation of chic, luxurious trendsetters bridging an eclectic mix of the sartorial, with the more relaxed.
Parisian fashion brand Sandro has been capturing this spirit since 1984 with simple silhouettes, muted colours and luxury fabrics. Menswear, in the form of Sandro Homme, didn’t arrive until 2008, ten years ago, when Artistic Director Ilan Chetrite (son of the brand’s founders) translated the brand’s ethos into a menswear line that would soon plaster the backs of stylish men the world over.
In keeping with its ten year anniversary, the brand fuses a sense of modernity with a vintage feel across the collection. For the SS18 range, the brand has used strong jazz references, with a seasonally relevant aesthetic that hints at a 50’s American youth culture. Playing with proportions and timeless cuts, the items display a refined casualness with fitted silhouettes but that never borders on the constrained.
In celebration of a decennial of Sandro style, Esquire has picked out 5 of the key items from the latest collection that encapsulate the brand. Chic, stylish and wearable. Happy Birthday, Sandro Homme.
Goldfish print shirt
Whilst always understated, the Sandro man certainly has confidence. Confidence is needed to pull off this style-driven bold print shirt, which teams perfectly with relaxed denim or tailored chinos.
Zipped leather jacket
This calfskin leather jacket with multiple pocket detailing, ribbed hem and classic collar is the ultimate evening throw-over for your favourite summer outfit.
Short-sleeved striped shirt
Typically Sandro Homme. Relaxed almost oversized fit, but with a tailored item in a complimentary fit, a world of contradicting traits that somehow works so well together.
The most basic style necessity for all men, this 100% cotton t-shirt boasts a mesh effect perfect for the summer heat here in the Middle East.
White narrow cut jeans
A well-cut, slim but casual pair of jeans are an essential part of any wardrobe. Throw a white shade into the mix and you get a stylish, timeless upgrade.
