While most designers and brands create cruise collections exclusively for women, there are also some that feature great menswear looks. Cruise collections are designed for those who like to be in a continuous summer state of mind. They are relaxed and polished and bring the cool vibes of the warm season to every day.
Discover a selection of some amazing looks from the 2018 cruise collections in our fashion edit below!
We are big fans of seeing vests worn with no shirts and sleeveless vests lately. They could be the next big thing. This is why this looks by Zambesi caught our eye. We love the soft and intricate texture of the vest and the sleek and simple neutral pants. The look was completed with a great belt and a shiny, classic pair of shoes.
This look from the Philipp Plein cruise 2018 collection is interesting because it combines a classic leather jacket with a pair of white, embroidered pants. We also like the red accent on the black jacket, which adds an interesting detail and takes the piece to a new level. Great job!
What’s special and appealing to this look by Just Cavalli is that it offers a combination of high and low by putting in the same outfit a very luxurious item (the stunning jacket) and a casual, untucked shirt. The shoes also add a summery flair to this look which might otherwise be worn in any season.
Gucci presented 115 looks in their cruise collection, but this was the look that stood out most for us. Drawing inspiration from different places and eras that were extremely charged visually, this outfit managed to convey an eclectic and eccentric spirit by keeping it simple and young.
Also going for a sleeveless look, this Givenchy outfit got us all excited. We love the mix of a buttoned-up shirt and jacket vibe combined with the casualness of a muscle shirt. The fun shoes complete the look and convey a not so serious vibe. It is a cruise collection, after all.
One thing we like most about cruise collections is their immediate practicality character. In other words, they are designed for an upscale audience that wants only the best, but they are highly wearable and usually don’t need much transformations and tailoring to be ready to wear.
