Looking good is all about layering, and frankly, layers aren’t something you want anything to do with during the summer. But during winter, it’s time to bring your A-game and dust off all your much loved coats and jackets. Actually scratch that. Let’s get a fresh new look.
Lockdown is now over and when you start coming into contact with people again (remember people?), you want to leave a good impression. It’s like a fresh chance at first impressions. So here’s M2’s top picks, all care of HUGO BOSS, because you can never go wrong with their lineup.
1. SARITO JACKET
Filled with a mix of duck down and feather, plus eco-friendly wadding, for lightweight comfort, this high-performance Sarito Jacket by BOSS Menswear has to be your first choice for what goes on top. This extremely comfortable jacket is constructed in a technical fabric with a water-repellent finish for drizzly NZ nights and detailed with a mesh strip at the back and reflective elements for visibility in low light. This is a clean and modern functional design, it doesn’t yell, it merely lets everyone know you look good. This is a BOSS Link piece, which can be worn alone or combined with corresponding garments that we’ll be showing off in a second.
2. ZOMY KNIT
For a slimmer silhouette and contemporary look, pick up this BOSS knit jacket, designed in a hybrid style with a regular fit. You’ll definitely stand out with its dynamic panelled look with a mixture of technical fabrics. As per usual, cotton lining provides comfort against the skin and those with an eye for detail will notice the BOSS logo trim along the front zip.
3. BASSARI KNIT
Now for figuring out what will go underneath your jackets, we recommend this refined knit bassari sweater. Made from virgin wool blended with a touch of silk for a classy look and feel, this crew-neck cut provides both an easy silhouette and a professional look. It’s been dyed with a melange pattern for subtle texture and is the perfect addition to most looks.
4. BOSS LUGGAGE – CROSSTOWN
Made from soft Italian leather with a natural grain, this document case is the perfect accessory to top off your ensemble. Featuring twin carry hands and an adjustable, detachable shoulder strap, you can wear it any way you like. It opens with a two-way zip to the main compartment with a zipped inner pocket and an interior organiser, so your work stays as collected as your look. A zipped pocket at the front provides easy access for the essentials and a rear smart sleeve is tucked into the back for use with trolley cases. If you’re going to be doing any travelling, this document case is not only the most practical, but also the best looking choice.
5. BOSS TRAINERS
A good pair of shoes can make or break a look, as well as your day if they don’t feel any good. Fortunately BOSS has you covered there as well. Built on an EVA-rubber sole with a modern silhouette, these lightweight trainers feature a knitted sock and hybrid uppers in webbing and suede with elastic overlays. Inspired by running footwear and updated with athleisure styling (yes, that’s a word now), these trainers are comfortable and, above all else, looking good. This fully lined pair is detailed with understated metallic branding and twin pull-loops.
