More notably recognized as a swimwear brand when he first started, in a matter of two years, male model Garrett Neff, has slowly built his Katama brand into a lifestyle brand that offers more than just swimming trunks. He recently showed his latest spring/summer 2018 collection on a yacht named the Sherman Zwicker at New York’s Pier 25 during New York Fashion Week: Men’s. Neff’s presentation had models standing on white boxes around the deck sporting the latest collection. Although the main core of the design still centered on swimming trunks, there was more on offer, ranging from hoodies, sweatshirts, polo shirts, board shorts and many others. Pretty much, a collection you would bring for a weekend getaway on the beach.

For this new collection, Neff sought inspiration from his childhood that he spent around the Chesapeake Bay area and the yacht/beach club lifestyle that the region is known for. Some pieces in the collection featured a mock “Katama Yacht Club” logo that were featured as decals and patches that really coincided with the nautical theme of the presentation. Further nautical themed touches found on several pieces included design details in the swimwear, like D-ring belting and ripstop, technical fabrics plus a mid-length pair with drawstrings, cleverly and artfully printed with lone wooden pillars. The dominant colors of the collection was dominantly, red, white and blue but with a few pops of neon. Katama’s spring/summer 2018 collection shows an impressive leap forward for Garrett Neff and his new endeavor as a fashion designer.
