As we enter a transitional season, Zara is on hand by releasing their traveller collection. The collection centres around the modern travelling man. With a focus on wardrobe essentials in classic colours such as navy, beige and khaki. Each look combines sophistication and function to create a wardrobe for the guy on the go.
How is the traveller collection constructed?
Fabric performance is the priority of having a collection focused on the unpredictability of travelling. The collection boasts a number of properties to ensure each clothing piece can help you navigate the fluctuation of the weather.
Properties include bi-stretch, wind-cheating fabric and wrinkle recovery for the days when you don’t have an iron to hand. Pieces are lightweight and most importantly feature water-resistant quality.
What are the key colours of the collection?
Colour is vital when creating a wardrobe inspired by travelling, and there is no better colour palette than one that reflects nature. Camel and khaki feature heavily with a touch of burgundy and black to ground the palette.
How is the collection styled?
Looks focus on monochromatic styling with one key colour dominating the entire look.
The denim jacket is used as an essential layering piece to add texture and dimension.
The shirt is worn over a roll neck for effortless layering.
What are some of the hero pieces?
The hero piece of the collection the trench. Camel is offset with black with a quilt like a gilet incorporated into the coat. Cuffs and pockets are trimmed with a black border, and the trench is made from a stretchy tech fabric.
What accessories are included?
Accessories play a significant part when travelling, and this collection focusses on the phone pouch and the technical backpack. Your phone needs to be close at hand, and your bag needs to be lightweight and durable to survive the tumultuous nature of being on the go.
What about shoes?
No wardrobe is complete without a chunky sneaker. For this season it has been given a functional update with hybrid track elements.
