Collaborations may take fashion brands to the new level. They supply customers with fresh joys, which explains why we’re constantly watching for the most exciting new ventures. On our radar at this time are two amazing new collaborations by British favourite, Marks & Spencer. The retailer, which has recently launched online in Australia, has teamed up with Alexa Chung and Kestin Hare to create two new collections that combine on-trend style with classic fashions.
The Harry Blouse
This classic ’80s style blouse has been the standout bit for the Archive by Alexa series up to now. With a gorgeously modest ruffled collar and sleeves, it’s easy to see why this quirky yet classic blouse has been a sell-out style.
The Mae Playsuit
The adorable Mae Playsuit is an easy-to-wear design which will become your go-to sunny day seem. For colder days, play the ’90s trend and style using a plain white T-shirt beneath, or toughen the look up using a dark, leather, biker jacket.
The Ada Trousers
The Ada Trouser’s cropped, wide-leg shape is back on trend for 2016. Relaxed yet glossy, these pants will take you from work to evening beverages easily.
The Helen Trainers
We adore these retro-chic, softball coaches. Comfortable, fashionable and ready to assist you make choices. Is there anything these trainers are not good for?
The Ada Blazer
The Ada Blazer (spouse to the Ada Trouser) combines relaxed tailoring with classic design. We recommend trying it at a version “off-duty” look, paired with skinny jeans, boots and an on-trend shirt or T-shirt.
Kestin Hare for M&S Collection
Kestin Hare is the talented menswear designer and creative director supporting the Kestin Hare tag. Collaborating with Marks and Spencer, Kestin has generated an exciting new collection of amazing designs. Like Archive by Alexa, the Kestin Hare to get M&S Collection explores traditional and classic styles of the past and successfully brings them into today’s world of fashion. Inspired by ancient British explorers, this group sees classic design details paired with a general modern aesthetic. The clean-cut designs are brought to life with a mixture of blossom and blossom prints.
“This partnership allows me to design for a wider audience without compromising on good high quality materials, fit, and style.” Stated the designer.
The collection offers men a range of layouts to easily add to their contemporary wardrobes. Styles such as textured cotton chinos and blazers make easy outfit partners whilst bold, hand-drawn prints make the standout pieces you’ve been looking for.
Hand Drawn Printed Short Sleeve Shirt
We love this standout short-sleeved top for its hand-drawn statement printing. Attention-grabbing yet not “in your face”, the washed-out, safari green colors make this coat a winning piece.
Textured Cotton Chino Shorts
It’s the small details which make these Kestin Hare Textured Cotton Chino Shorts standout from all the other pairs of chino shorts on the market. The buckles on the waistband, the warm brown buttons along with the coin pocket detail, all contribute to making these traditional shorts special.
Granddad Collar Jersey T-Shirt
The Granddad Collar Jersey T-Shirt is a great slim-fit tee shirt for casual wear. With all the comfort of a plain cotton T-shirt but with infinite more design, this shirt can allow you to stand out from the bunch. Additionally, it looks great paired with an Textured Cotton Chino Shorts. BUY
Textured Cotton Blazer
The Italian sourced, textured cotton of this blazer provides that luxury feels at a less expensive price. We particularly love the palm foliage print lining on this single-breasted layout.
Textured Cotton Pleated Chinos
With double knife pleats at the front, Kestin Hare flawlessly modernises early British explorer influences in these chinos. Sporting an adjustable waistband and added stretch, these classic navy pants are a brand new wardrobe essential.
