When you first think of preppy style, it conjures up images of Ivy Leaguers dressed in plaid, chinos and oxfords. Brands like Ralph Lauren and Tommy Hilfiger made their careers making Americana look cool – now enter American Swan, a label that offers chic apparel and fashionable footwear right here in India.
Their current collection is broken into 3 main segments: Navy, Classic Prep, and Haute Americana.
American Swan’s Navy collection is fraught with everything sailor, anchor and nautical. Coloured sailor stripes of red, white, and blue, and unique anchor prints and polka dot patterns, conjure images of a summer breeze over the mystifying blue sea.
American Swan’s Classic Prep collection draws impetus from the Ivy League, and regimental fashion aesthetics. Check out their interesting multi-colored stripes, sporty motifs, and innovative designs for a new twist on that classic preppy look.
American Swan’s Haute Americana collection represents the American way of life and bold lifestyle. The stars and stripes of the American Flag are seen throughout the collection on classy silhouettes, without overdoing it.
