If you want an easy way to punch up a spring outfit, go for stripes. They can be navy-and-white on a striped jersey shirt; they can be thicker and across a blazer body; they can be on an accessory of choice, like a cocked hat or a pair of deck shoes. While tight-to-the-body picks from Jean Paul Gaultier were the looks of choice featured in Schön, you don’t need to shrink-wrap yourself in a pair of tight striped trousers to win. A striped pocket square? That idea we like, along with the collegiate-looking blazer.
Schön’s spread, styled by Ioannis Dimitrousis and photographed by Dimitris Theocharis, explores the side of sailor wear that even includes sailor caps and vintage-style knits. It looks like this is model Sebastian Sauve’s first voyage, considering how fresh and wide-eyed he looks in the magazine… While I wish I could see more footwear in the editorial, I can understand why the camera got closer. In one shot, we looked at a trim pair of white shoes that reminded me of vintage ’50s winklepickers, which would be excellent with white or light pants and a striped shirt inspired by Schön, by the way.
