Clean lines and jaunty stripes meet the classic tailoring of 22/4 with the elegance of the sea meeting the sky in this playful new Spring/Summer collection, which calls to mind the nostalgia of the seaside experience. Nautical notions like eyelets, cords, draw the eye once more to the designer’s signature attention to detail. Graphic design elements, such as the exclusively in-house designed seahorse logo printed on silk and light shirting cotton, bring a touch of whimsy and sentimentality to the collection, recollecting the early swim experience of a German childhood.
A glittering evening gown calls to mind the dramatic beauty not only of the ocean itself, but of iconic images like Botticelli’s ‘Birth of Venus’. Elegant beach suits and swim trunks will mark the trend of the 22/4 Neptune-Dandy. Jumpsuits for both men and women are a nod to 19th century swimwear, accessorized with cool bathing-cap hats, eye-catching pearl jewelry elements, waterproof beach-box crossbodies, bottle openers and fun nautical standards like the cork keyring pendant, this season is resonant with the holiday feeling and is as impactful as a wave breaking on shore.
