GANT x Le Mans
There are two things I have always been into since I was a kid, and they still have not changed: cars and all things preppy. Which kid doesn't like cars? I have been obsessed with them ever since I can remember. When it comes to preppy style I like the brightly colored clothes in comfortable fabrics that it's beautifully low-key. When I was first shown the GANT Capsule collection for the 24 Hours Le Mans car race, I was stocked!
Le Mans is one of the biggest races on the planet,You have the Monaco GP, the Daytona 500, the Indy 500 and Le Mans is right up there with these big races. The car race takes place annually by the town of Le Mans, France. Starting from the next race June 17, 2017, GANT will be the official sponsor and outfitter of the race for the next 3 years. The GANT x Le Mans capsule collection has been released to consumers globally in May 2017.
I’ve picked my favorite pieces from the collection and styled them of you.
Polo shirts are a timeless summer essential. Its design hasn’t changed since it was first developed in the early 20th century, and it looks as good today as it did then. For me its one of those pieces that bridges the formality gap between a T-shirt and a shirt, the polo is that irreplaceable “preppy” wardrobe component, particularly as summer is here.
This shell summer jacket has that magic of the traditional preppy “Ivy league” style, that is eternally fresh due to its sporty feel. Layering it with a dress shirt and deep red knit sweater further enhances this classic modern look.
