THE BLUES BY JAN MARCEL

19.02.14

Inspired by our timeless tones trend for SS14, we asked menswear blogger Michiel Steur of Janmarcel.com to pick his favourite pieces in shades of blue from our new collection.

Tell us about your signature style.

I like to describe my style as simple yet special at the same time. I really enjoy wearing basic well-cut items made from quality materials. I then combine these to make a cool ensemble.

Why is the blue shirt such a wardrobe essential?

Because it is so versatile. A sky blue shirt looks good with practically everything and can be incorporated into both formal and casual looks.

What do you look for in the perfect blue shirt?

The colour has to be just so; blue, but very light, I also prefer shirts that are not too slim, slightly boxy and possibly a bit oversized. I prefer a non-stretch fabrication too.

How will you be wearing the Rockwell coat this season?

In many different ways! The asymmetric style makes the coat very interesting and the design speaks for itself, so I will wear it with all of my favourite basics.

What’s the most stylish way to style two types of blue together?

In A/W I like to wear blues with black. Blue and black are my favourite colours fashion wise, and I think that they create a strong look together.

For S/S they look perfect when paired with a very light shade of denim. Wearing blue shades with black or other blue shades seems to be my favorite way to wear, but then again, blue looks amazing with basically all colours. That’s why I am such a big fan.
