The Esquire hot drop: 10 things to invest in today
As the summer heat creeps anything-but-quietly closer, it’s time for your wardrobe to shed the last of its winter coat and embrace a weight dose of Riviera elegance. Your outfit’s base, denim, should get lighter in both tone and weight for the occasion.
Playing with the acid-wash prints of Marine Serre will have you crowned as the Jean Genie in no time at all, while Louis Vuitton’s ‘90s hooded parka is the perfect transitional piece that will last you for many seasons to come. Raf Simons and Issey Miyake have made a doddle out of keeping things sunny up top, with acid house smiles and tie-die prints respectively, and Acne’s update on the classic Breton will have you on red alert. Looking to cop the ultimate footwear finesse? Birkenstock’s collaboration with Proenza Schouler are a dead cert to have you walking on sunshine.
