New Bedford, Massachusetts based menswear brand Exley made its first foray into swimwear during their S/S 17 collection line at NYFW: Men’s. The collection features assorted tailored pieces such as essential pullovers (statement piece), bristol swim shorts, field jackets, essential swim shorts, water resistant hooded rain jackets, all inspired by “Weathered New England boardwalks and coastline.”
The head designer, Annie Campbell takes us on journey throughout New England, discovering inspiration along hidden beaches, “noting every detail along the way from sand dunes overrun with flowers, and vivid shade of turquoise water to the salty ocean breeze.” The collection scheme echo New England’s coastal hues with colors such as rusted orange, sand deep blue, and taupe.
The collection taps into the brand’s “New New England” inspired lifestyle with clothes constructed for the modern, elevated gentleman, while remaining stylish and functional. The price point ranges from $145 to $650 and will be available online and at retailers including Unionmade, Martin Patrick 3, August 2016.
