Rowing Blazers x Gucci Vault Is the Funky-Preppy Collab This Summer Needs
In the upper echelons of in-the-know fashion, two brands are always at the tips of every guy's tongues: Rowing Blazers and Gucci. Imagine my fucking delight when the two launched a capsule collection today.
If you know Rowing Blazers, you know their cool, carefree attitude that somehow manages to seamlessly merge preppy style with lackadaisical effortlessness. Their clothes—despite consisting of blazers, sweaters, rugby shirts, polos, and the likes—carry a street-style swagger that, when combined with the high-end, opulent-but-playful luxury of Gucci Vault, creates a vibrant summer collection. In just 15 pieces—including shorts, rugby shirts, tuxedo jackets, a tie, and a baseball cap—Rowing Blazers and Gucci have claimed the top spot for best collab of the year (so far). It'll be a hard position to beat—especially with prices as great as these.
Our eight favorite selects from the collection are below (yes, eight, because there's really no narrowing it down to less than half of the collection when every piece is a standout). Get to shoppin'—you have me and the rest of the fashion community to race with to hit "Checkout," and my finger is already hovering over the mouse.
