Spring 2011 Menswear Collections from Nautica, Buckler, and Vassilios Kostetsos PDF Print E-mail
Written by Debra C. Argen and Edward F. Nesta   

Nautica Spring 2011 Menswear - Photo by Luxury Experience Gentlemen get a head start on planning your spring 2011 wardrobe with exciting menswear shown by Nautica, Buckler, and Vassilios Kostetsos during Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week at its new home at Lincoln Center in New York.

 

 

Classic, preppy, clean looks are the hallmark of New York based Nautica , founded in 1983, and the Collection for "Spring 2011 is inspired by the spirit of the water, the people and the architecture of the American Southern Coast. From the active lifestyle of the Florida Keys to the casual elegance, that is part of the tradition and charm of New Orleans, life on the southern coast is vibrant. From the beaches, to the gulf, to the bayous and wetlands that surround the big cities and small towns of the south, comes a soulful and colorful heritage and a deep connection to the water. The sun is always warm. Dress, like the lifestyle, is easy and authentic. The traveler and the local blend seamlessly into the landscape, finding inspiration in everyday adventures. Life on the southern coast is truly a life well-lived."
