The Beachy Andrea Pompilio SS 2012 Collection

The swanky yet beach-ready looks of the Andrea Pompilio SS 2012 collection are perfect for a tropical vacation destination or just a stroll down Central Park. The Italian designer combines vintage looks with classic pieces in this new ‘A’ line, using Hawaiian-inspired prints and sharp black blazers to create unique and handsome ensembles. Pompilio shows that floral-printed Bermuda shorts can look sophisticated and suave when paired with cool colors and accessories, and the right attitude.

The designer explains how he is mostly inspired by his own style and taste for his collections, saying, "I start by doing research, mostly in vintage and secondhand shops, and often end in my wardrobe, questioning myself about missing parts and essentials that need a twist." The mix of casual gear and elegant pieces in the Andrea Pompilio SS 2012 collection creates the perfect sunny look for any guy, from the city to the seashore.
