Summer's here! Our Senior Menswear Designer, Craig Osborne, tells us what's new for men this season. 

By nature, spring/summer represents the time of the year where colour and pattern is widely accepted as part of your everyday wardrobe as we move away from the muted tones of grey and navy traditionally associated with the colder months.

 
This season, bright colours are again proving to be a popular choice, but here at White Stuff we have made pattern much more of a focal point within our collection. One of the biggest pattern trends for SS13 is the return of stripes.
 
Although the Breton stripe and nautical inspired pieces continue to remain a popular choice amongst fashion-conscious men, this season stripes are being adopted in a multitude of ways; from Breton to pinstripe and humbug.
 
We feel the traditional Breton  stripe is a classic style that will never fall out of favour; it adds French Riviera flair to any summer outfit.
 
We recommend pairing bold striped garments with our current collection of neutral wardrobe staples  in order to ‘anchor’ them and allow the stripes to make the statement.
