The new BOSS Black Collection for Fall/Winter 2011 was created under the headline "Luxury Voyage." Unusual details and streamlined cuts lend the BOSS Black Menswear a distinctly masculine look. The experiences of 20th century travelers provided the inspiration for the new season. The easy elegance and formal chic of this period take shape in a smart, sophisticated theme that is driven by classic tailoring.
Modern takes on the three-piece suit form the focus: a single-breasted, two-button jacket with a natural shoulderline meets slim trousers. The signature herringbone pattern echoes in everything from suits to undercollar linings, bags and shoes, and is perfectly enhanced with fine leather details. One of the collection's key pieces is a long, aviator-style double-breasted trench with metal buttons. In the informal sportswear styles, parkas, quilted vests and super-soft lamb leather coats lead the way. Paired with bulky knit sweaters in Norwegian patterns, they round out the effortlessly elegant BOSS Black look. Biker jackets in vintage leather and tweed cardigans with toggles supply a hint of retro style. Short, fitted shapes dominate.
The fabrics are soft and sumptuous, with wool and wool blends to the fore. The materials also include soft-brushed flannels, moleskin and techno mixes.
The color palette is muted, ranging from a medley of gray and beige nuances through brown to elegant black. The overall look is clean and monochrome.
A full range of accessories completes the collection, including bags, shoes, scarves and belts. Elegant lace-ups in buttery calfskin and a matching weekender bag perfect the looks. For the casual sportswear styles, there are rustic lace-up boots with a lambskin lining.
