Art Gallery Nautical
Nautical themes get an update with an art gallery inspired aesthetic. Classic maritime motifs and colour-ways are reenergized with bold blocking, reconfigured stripes and plays with placement and proportion. Sportswear fabrications and athletic silhouettes enhance the fresh modernist appeal.
