The Marina Yachting man sets sail for adventure everyday, living in town and dreaming of the sea, and assisted by his style: nautical jackets that protect and sailor sweaters that keep warm with ultra-technical materials and authentic models.
The Marina Yachting tradition heads for new horizons. Re-invention but without betraying its origins. Blue becomes almost black, a foil to mélange greys and dark bordeaux. A special rubber-treated cotton is applied to the cloth of the Montgomery with frogs (woollen rope and wood): antique flavours mingle with contemporary materials. The rough-cut Pickot is a seasonal must. Double-sided wool, rough-cut again, in the Field Jacket, overcoat and blazer too: the naval officer’s wardrobe is ready. Uniform detailing as marks of distinction also on sweaters finished with contrasting grosgrain ribbon and tricot work using Idrostop-treated Corespam cotton to make them more like jackets, functional and versatile to accompany navigators in their metropolitan crossings.
Sporting spirit is concentrated in the colours of a sober and rigorous winter: the quilt is anthracite, but also red and electric blue, borrowed from nautical flags. White mellows into ecru. Graphic details turn sailor items into long-season garments combining lightness and technical performance, with a “polar” look but a summery hand. Blue and grey predominate, with other nuances appearing in the sweatshirts, in stripes and in the new ton-sur-ton die-cast logo.
An explosion of greys in which blue insinuates itself like the sea in Norwegian fjords. Natural colours for town wear but with distinctly marine elements, as always: sand, rope and teak in a mix of noble materials and innovative solutions. Large loose-knit woollen necks, polyester sleeves for dynamic freedom, super-soft three-layer flannels, short raincoats, sweaters made of lambswool and specially felted wool, elastic fibres producing unhoped-for effects. Trousers are slim and perfectly cut to ensure absolute freedom of movement and recognizable Marina Yachting elegance.
AUTUMN WINTER 2013/14
Winter Blue. Couture elaborations of the marine tradition. Marina Yachting’s winter sees its deepest blue accompanied by nuances ranging from rope to bordeaux.
Cream colour baize and classic ribbing. The brand’s identity is expressed in a revival of classic places and references with a contemporary twist. The wardrobe features new jackets with eternal charm: dark, supremely elegant bordeaux is a foil to lacquered frogs, sail eyelets, herringbone cotton tape on hems and gilded zips on sweaters. Every piece is a must: the cape has been made longer, while the Pickot has been sized down as an alternative to the short coat. The Montgomery is now asymmetrical, with lacquered frogs. The waisted jacket is worn with long, soft trousers or the bubble skirt. Idrostop wool becomes super-soft cashwool. Fabrics like compact jersey, cotton drill, stretch satin and velvet cotton thus lead a revolution that puts elegance centre stage.
White and blue are accompanied not only by bordeaux but also by a very urban brown. Marina Yachting’s sporting dimension centres on stripes, second-skin effect tops, enamelled logos on buckles and personalized tape on the linings. Forms have expanded with the arrival of warm quilts and high collars against the cold, also on the sailor and bomber jackets, thus giving the garments a techno-chic look.
This is an aristo-nautical niche enriched by exquisite features, such as jet, embroidery, military flavoured detailing and metal charms, on male fabrics tailored to female forms. An exclusive college allure.
From mud colour to an almost reflector orange. Technical fibres work with classical cuts. One-off revisitings of icon pieces, experiments in style: the quilt becomes a bubble coat, the cloak a romantic cape with taffeta and nylon, the trench swells out with sponge wool, and the Pickot discovers luxuriously smooth and shiny velvet. Other luxury features include Murmansky fur collars, a very British lozenge quilt and linings bearing an artistic reworking of the logo.
