Nana Boateng embraced men’s suiting with a fresh approach not often seen on the runway; going “bold” with shiny magenta and royal hued fabrics. Boateng’s button choice was deliberate; oversized buttons created real drama and were used continually throughout the collection.

There was an endless parade of garments; Boateng must have spent countless hours in the studio preparing for this show. All of the looks featured slim silhouettes and were peppered with a sense of fun. The casual wear featured thinly-striped pastel shirts that looked very prep school-turned-hip.

Boateng mixed it up with some darker chocolates but stayed mostly within the vibrant color palette. Reinterpreted Hawaiian shirts, casual jackets and vests rounded out the collection. Visually, this line was bright haute and the swagger of the models definitely captured the imagination of the crowd.
