Menswear label Childs finds itself on the water, inspired by designer Robert Childs’ childhood life in Florida, for SS17. Details like zig-zag stitch, racing stripes, waterproofed fabrics and marine blues run through the collection and give it the nautical nod.

Designed in New York and manufactured in Japan, Italy and USA, the outerwear pieces are strong this season with a lightweight, translucent zip-up windcheater featuring simple diagonal lines, giving a nod to the water theme while the print on the bomber jacket adds a hint of colour and uniqueness.

Courtesy of artist Zoe Barzca, the rip print – which appear on T-shirts, jackets and bags – is a resemblance to high seas encounter while floral motif gives a sense of sailing towards a beautiful exotic island.

While the AW16 lookbook featured friends and collaborators – as the brand wanted to highlight everyday man with a taste in well crafted clothing – the brand took to the streets of New York City to showcase the nautical theme set against the metropolis’ grit in its SS17 lookbook.

Childs graduated from the Fashion Institute of Technology and went on to work as Design Director for Adam Kimmel and Thom Browne. His appreciation of menswear heritage sees the designer taking classic pieces and giving them a contemporary edge and update.

Made for everyday wear, this is a collection for guys who want wearability and something special at the same time. Childs will continue to grow the brand with introduction of more silhouttes and collaboration projects.
