A California Breeze blows into the Big Apple as the BOSS Spring/Summer 2019 collection makes its debut on the runway. For this show, BOSS Menswear and BOSS Womenswear are revealed together at New York Fashion Week for the first time.
This season, BOSS looks to California, taking inspiration from coastal cities and the modern houses overlooking the Pacific Ocean. This seamless overlap of beach and metropolitan life inspires a fresh new collection, as precision design gets a relaxed, surf-inspired vibe.
The color palette is cool and airy. Soft blush and pale blue are grounded by sartorial burgundy and navy, while full looks in white take the collection further into the summer. Light teal, orange and deep yellow bring in pops of rich color.
For both men and women, signature BOSS tailoring remains elegant and clean, but is relaxed for summer with softened structures, airy fabrics and easygoing textures. Suits are crafted from crinkled cotton and paper-touch cloth, while lightweight nylon coats and jackets have an unexpectedly crisp texture, as if exposed to sea spray. Precise pleats appear on beautifully light skirts; blouses and dresses are sharply cut but remain laid-back in fluid viscose-satin.
