Homecore Spring/Summer 2012 collection
Homecore are a Paris based Menswear label, started back in 1992 by Alexandre Guarneri. The label was initially streetcar focussed but over the years has developed a more grown up style, but one that’s never forgotten its roots, or its sense of humour.
Above is their latest collection and it’s one that’s full of vibrant Summer shades. From colourful chinos to bright polo shirts and accessories there’s a mix of yellows, blues, reds and oranges. All of which is tempered with a more subtle palette of light greys, sky blue and navy.
It’s very much a collection of well detailed staple items, and although there’s nothing that’s mind blowing, at the same time there’s also very little that wouldn’t assimilate itself quite happily into an already existing wardrobe, which for me is the range’s main strength.
There are also some great pieces here – outerwear is simple, casual and well detailed, the shirt with the subtle two-tone geometric print is especially nice and the chinos look well cut. There’s a soft tailored feel to much of it and everything together looks like it provides the perfect casual wardrobe for Summer.
