For Spring/Summer 2014, Religion reinterprets their signature dark and deconstructed aesthetic for warmer climates. Modern tailoring is fused with sportswear influences to create a lighter take on the brand’s traditional layered silhouette. While the color palette remains mostly monochromatic throughout, understated prints and patterns are included as well, complementing the collection’s clean lines.
Getting into the nitty gritty, jackets have been updated with distressed leather panels, adding a unique twist to the iconic perfecto leather biker jacket. This knack for modernity carries over into the classic SB 2, with front-zip inserts of a bomber jacket paneled underneath. Printed shorts and matching shirts offer an appropriate summer combination, while sweats and joggers have also been given the washed-out animal print treatment.
Zip detailing has been added to hems on T-shirts and paneled sweats lending the simpler pieces in the range a sense of contemporary fashion. Retro sportswear aesthetics are present through distressed brand insignias reminiscent of ’70s American football jerseys.
