What’s on for Aquila SS15
Showcasing the latest trademark in the men’s clothing and footwear range of Aquila, shoe shining by a practised boot polisher gives a proper feel for the spring-summer season collection campaign by Aquila menswear.
Hand woven in the Italian foothills of Tuscany, shoes are romantically crafted and dip-dyed to create a beautifully luxe yet worn appearance to the leather – you can sense the adoration of each shoe from each design.
With a strong focus on the humble boat shoe, among classic dress shoes and more casual styles, the designs featured beautiful detailing including coloured soles, dainty tassels and entwined leather giving each shoe a unique drawcard to its appearance.
A standout within the shoe range is the ‘1958’ collection, created in 2008 as a tribute to the brand’s 50 year anniversary and continued each season since. The collection is playful and creative without refrain – a celebration of what makes Aquila truly special. This season, the ‘1958’ collection features a pair of white brogues, detailed in pink patterned designs and cut outs, alongside a pair of navy polka dot patterned boat shoes and crossed leather strapped sandals.
The menswear features a selection of ranges from casual to formalwear. Made from cottons and silks, the garments are light in texture for the warmer temperatures in summer, while still featuring the options to layer. A favourite of the brand is the above-the-knee cut off culottes seen in a variety of colours and often paired with cool vests and suave pocket squares for chic summer looks.
Along with these specifically summer pieces, the collection also offers what we have come to know and love of Aquila in coats, shirts, jackets and accessories including ties and belts. Aquila’s goal was to be a “one stop shop” for classic menswear, and they have certainly achieved this with their range of items that can be mixed and matched for easy styling within each colour way.
Aquila offers stylish menswear that is at the forefront of its kind in Australia. While this sleek tailoring was often seen in established European brands, Aquila was the first to present such sophisticated styles for men here in Oz, and continue to creatively encapsulate an exceptional way of dressing for Australian men.
