For the first time in its 130 year history, the legendary Orient Express recently rolled into Stockholm on an all new route from Venice. Each of the train carriages has been restored to their former 1920’s Art Deco glory. It is simply amazing. To us it sounded like the dreamiest trip ever, and we got to thinking about a whole new journey that has inspired the new GANT Rugger Pre Spring 2014 collection.
Our new set of early spring favorites is simply sophisticated and contemporary, yet also highly romanticized, just like those impeccably restored train cars famous for featuring perfect service, crisp white linens, five course dining arrangements, and every occasion to dress up.
Key pieces include a tuxedo jacket inspired cut away coat, paisley printed trousers and a wrap around wool shawl collar blazer. An army green jacket with an allover zebra print lining inspired by wallpaper from Wes Anderson movies. And our personal favorite, a beautiful paisley Italian silk robe with fabric that we developed from scratch.
The collection also keeps our standard essentials up to date, like simple tees, crisp Oxfords, wash out madras shirts and our fitted stick boy jeans. There are new relaxed favorites like a bronze brushed wool mohair cardigan, a navy unconstructed nylon hoodie, and a super lightweight travel coat, easy to squeeze into a waxed canvas for when you’re ready to embark on a dream journey since forever.
Keeping it dressy but messy and always staying Luxè, we’ve packed our suitcases with classic American Sportswear pieces inspired by the two most contradictory things; Italian flamboyance and Scandinavian simplicity. We’ll meet you on board. First one to the bar car wins!
