Stand Out Destinations: Barcelona
Thing heating up? Don’t sweat it. Tessuti’s summer lineup is a masterclass in beating the heat in true, streetwear-forward style and ease
words by Will HALBERT
From the gothic mystique of the Sagrada Familia to the energy and elan of La Rambla, Barcelona is all about that stand out mentality. A vibrantly off-kilter trip of a city, it should come as little surprise that the Catalan capital was the creative catalyst behind some of the world’s most famous artists and architects. From Gaudi to Picasso, Barcelona has long since been the arbiter of a larger-than-life, louder-than-words attitude; a go-big-or-go-home mentality that seems to have woven itself into the city’s very DNA.
Bottom line? The Catalan capital provided the perfect stomping ground for Tessuti’s latest summer lines. It’s no secret that you have to bring your A game if you’re looking to stand out in a city like Barcelona. And that’s exactly what Tessuti have done this year. No strangers to the heat, Tessuti have curated a summer lineup guaranteed to help you keep your cool as the temperature rises.
Proving that stripping down needn’t mean holding back, the ever-brazen, beach-ready, contrast-striped sweatshirt and shorts combos from Billionaire Boys Club demonstrate exactly why the brand remains such a firm favourite at Tessuti.
Likewise, CP Company expertly navigate the fine line between simple and statement with a crimson tee shirt and slacks two-piece. Bold, bright colours and comfortable cotton fits bring a touch of tailored class to your summer streetwear.
Ever the fan of the curveball, Stone Island have opted to surprise fans with a summer parka. Featuring a garment dyed, 3-layer performance nylon, the coat remains breathable despite its water resistance. Perfect protection from the ever-changing summer season.
Add to this list the latest and greatest from Love Moschino, Versace, Vivienne Westwood and Ralph Lauren, and it’s easy to see that Tessuti aren’t playing around. Barcelona provided the perfect backdrop for Tessuit’s summer line up, boasting a host of statement pieces that’ll happily go toe-to-toe with the best of Gaudi’s monuments and turn just as many heads as the sagrada familia.
It’s clear to see that Tessuti have well and truly set the standard for standing out this summer. And despite the rising temperatures, they’ve done so without so much as breaking a sweat. EJ
