Fashionoffice SS2017 tip: Maritime Style
'Ahoy' is the title of the new Spring/Summer 2017 collection by Austrian label Lena Hoschek. The navy colored 'Sailor Jacket' with golden buttons (Photo: Lupi Spuma) is inspired by the Baltic Sea, the German island Rügen and lifestyle at the island's shores during former times in the first half of the 20th century. 'Ahoy' is influenced by Rügen's bathing culture of the 1920s, 30s, 40s, the revolutionary change of women's swim wear which became increasingly practical for sports activities and was used more and more for the expression of body-self-consciousness and zest for life; additionally, it drives its influences from the adoption of men's fashion such as trousers or tailored jackets by movie icons like Marlene Dietrich. Lena Hoschek sets male items into dialogue with very feminine silhouettes. Here on this page, the 'Ahoy' sailor jacket with captain appeal is presented with jeans.
The 'Wedgie' (icon fit) jeans from the current Levi's Spring/Summer 2017 collection are inspired by vintage Levi's style and designed with focus on the perfect presentation of waist and hips; they're described as 'cheeky' jeans.
