A member of a trio, which incepted the 90’s “preppy look” resurgence, NAUTICA let go its somewhat ostentatious creations many years ago. With Chris Cox, formerly of Tommy Hilfiger as well as Victorinox, at the helm now. NAUTICA has made the return to its emphasis on Americana and the tried-and-true heritages along the coastal towns.
Worker wears effortlessly layered upon fine knitwear, toggle coats integrated with Houndstooth sportscoat, Cox’s creations for Fall 2010 are never far from the label’s nautical origin. As the designer stated, the collection is a reflection of “Portland To Portland”, the connection between 2 shorelines – Portland, Maine along the Atlantic Ocean and Portland, Oregon on the Pacific coast. Arriving in stores in August, the refined amalgamation of luxe and everyday wear makes NAUTICA’s newest collection timeless.
