John Elliott’s S/S 17 Pairs Pastels with Pool Boys

LA-based fashion designer John Elliott debuted the Spring/ Summer ’17 collection of his eponymous label at New York Men’s Fashion Week, replete with celebrity pals like Colton Haynes, spotted front-row enjoying the rainbow parade of pale bomber jackets and board shorts.

Inspired by life aboard a luxury yacht, Eliott’s collected was a sophisticated, clean, and somewhat safe with a cascade of color from pale blues, to greens, to, finally, pink, all very much ready-to-wear deckside.

Though it doesn’t feel much (or at all) ahead of its time, it’s weakness is also its greatest strength: John Elliott’s work is decidedly, definitively now. Standout pieces included pastel pink leather and beautiful blue trench coats.

Above, we’ve recreated one of our favorite looks from the those that strutted past: a simple varsity jacket/ flat-brim hat combination that’s powerful in its pinkness.
