The contemporary section of Alea’s spring summer 2018 collection aims to clothe young men 24/7. Patterns evolve all-over in coloured graphics with well-defined themes: vintage recalls, bright or pastel colours for Liberty London floral prints, ethnic references that range from India to Africa with colour contrasts and finally a real gem dedicated to Hawaiian mood divided into palms, safari, tropical flowers.
The unfailing indigo ranging from stripes in contrast with white background to check pattern and plain colour without forgetting the appealing paisley graphics.
Jersey fabric is made only in plain shade to give it a smart touch. Stripes, wide or thin are two-tone, regimental or prefaded effect. Specific attention to linen: 21 variations of yarn-dyed, indigo with a prefaded effect, patterns, old garment-dyed.
The young and transversal Alea part, the Traveller collection is clearly inspired by eighties and Magnum Pi wearing one of his ultra coloured Hawaiian shirts. Half spread collar, texan, button down are the top models that will be developed on pure linen, seersucker and other fabrics onto various patterns.
