I was granted access to Black Sail By Nautica Men’s Spring 2014 Show, and I must say It made me want to hit the gym. Menswear is my niche, and I stick to it, because us men need attention too. From color blocking, to the asymmetrical piecing. Bright colors paired with neutral tones, and an array of different fabrics gave this menswear collection not only different looks, but a different feel for the spring & summer time.Being that this was my first time attending any show by Nautica I wasn’t quite sure what to expect as far as runway goes although I’ve always keep up with the brand as this was all my mother dressed me in as a child, and I can honestly say Black sail delivered a very refreshing look. I loved the whole laid back feel of the whole collection, total opposite of how I’m usually dressed. I swear this collection made me want to take a vacation! Let’s talk Miami! South Beach to be more specific.
This collection was like the perfect mix of the two seasons.. the cool spring weather that still lingers around during April that you need a sweater or pullover for “up north anyhow” and the approaching summer months with the incorporation of shorts, and the lighter fabrics.
