A Unique Way For Guys To Wear Shades


I know, I know, they’re not THOSE kind of shades. Yet, you must admit how cool this digital print of blinds, shades or shutters, looks so good. Looking exactly how the shadow of blinds would look on a wall, this geometric print is surely one that would prove to be timeless, mostly because of the classic silhouette of the items throughout this post.

Part of designer Elian Nargassi’s ‘INSIDE/OUT’ Spring/Summer 2016 collection, which “revolves around inside versus outside in terms of the different spaces within a home in contrast to its exterior,” as told to NOT JUST A LABEL,  is due in part to contemplating a home’s structure + foundations + segmented traditional patterns, creating new fractured silhouettes. Nargassi’s exploration of the impact of light filtered through shutters + the imprint it leaves, lent itself to the creation of this digital print, for both cottons + knits. Of course, since it’s a digital print, it will NEVER fade!


The ‘Mens Shades Shirt‘ shown above, a short sleeve button down dress shirt, has a regular yet slim fit. Featuring a classic collar, a classic button through placket with white buttons + a rounded hem, this shirt looks great with these matching ‘Mens White Printed Shorts‘ below. Made of a combo of Italian linen + lycra, these shorts have 2 front pockets + 2 welt pockets on the back, a zip fastening fly, a single button fastening to the waistband + belt loops. Yet, I can also see a guy rocking this shirt with white shorts, black or bright green joggers, bermuda shorts (as seen below), in black or red, or even a pair of jeans, with an unfinished hem + cool kicks.


Now this ‘Mens Shades Tank Top‘ has me ‘ooing + ahhing’ paired with these black bermuda shorts, also by Nargassi. A muscle tank top, with a digital print on front + all black on the back side, looks great both by itself or over a short sleeve button down. It would be interesting to see it under a contrasting patterned long sleeve button down, with rolled up sleeves.


Finally, this white short sleeved ‘Mens Shades T-shirt‘, made of Italian cotton with a regular fit, features a round neckline + rounded hem. As with all of Nargassi’s tops here, this tee would look great on its own or over a shirt.

In truth, these tops + bottom make quite a statement, considering their minimalist design + silhouette.
