New York Fashion Week took a West Coast sun vibe on The Empire Hotel Rooftop as Nautica debuted its Men’s Spring 2012 Collection. Inspired by a California Road Trip, Nautica did just that by featuring cargo and board shorts for the beach, as well as light layers in nylon for the evening breeze. Wool blazers and cotton trench coats paired with v-neck sweaters were a great addition to the collection, as the warm neutrals complemented the bright summer colors, such as watermelon and shades of blue in a completely perfect way! American prep truly takes on a cool and casual Cali look with Nautica come the spring weather of 2012.
