Nautica Spring 2012




Nautica presented its Spring 2012 line on the rooftop of the Empire Hotel and given the madness that was happening right across the street (Lincoln Center), it was a nice break from it all.  The collection had a distinct nautical vibe: classic anoraks and madras button-downs paired with boat shoes and canvas bags. Keeping it current were some neon trench coats and color-blocked polos.   Americana is still going strong for menswear and given the amount of support from lifestyle/male bloggers, this timeless look will be around for a long time. Not that I’m complaining (!) Oh, and did I mention the shirtless male models?  Hey, now.  The babe factor was pretty high.
