Essential: BOSS Orange spring/summer ’14 collection

FESTIVAL CASUALS. A tamed Pete Doherty, an experimental Chris Martin or maybe a more refined version of John Mayer: Those musical references should illustrate what BOSS Orange is trying to emulate this season.



Festival-going bohemians, often spotted at Coachella, Bonnaroo and Glastonbury, are the said inspiration for the key looks—think of a bulky-knit hippie sweater paired with relaxed jeans, a stonewashed denim jacket replacing the leather, and a patterned shirt tucked under a trench with a big hood. There’s that sass of synth-pop that BOSS Orange’s casualwear oozes in the pairings, which are not too loud in colors but harmoniously melodious in details.
