Inspired by the sights, sounds and landscapes of the Mediterranean, La Martina’s Spring/ Summer 2017 collection is a medley of bright hues and light textures. While the brand has long been associated with luxury sportswear and polo apparel, its latest range features versatile looks that can easily take one from the field to a casual day out.
La Martina’s new designs are based on the beauty and culture of Barcelona, Saint Tropez, Capri and Santorini, and are embellished with vibrant colours and playful prints. They are also fashioned in a mix of light fabrics perfect for Malaysia’s endless summer — cotton and linen for shirts, nylon and pique fabric in lightweight jumpers, and Aluminia, a material incorporated with aluminium fibres and which has high thermo-regulation properties. The latter is equal parts stylish and functional, as it helps keep one cool in summer, and warm in winter.
What we like about the collection is that its designs are chic enough to wear for work, play and even a date. Here are 6 of our favourite looks from La Martina’s Spring/ Summer 2017 collection that we’d gladly wear for a romantic day out.

For a fun dinner and drinks date, pop on this colourful dress and a light jacket — just in case the night gets chilly.

This outfit practically screams “picnic date” in the park, with its breezy and laid-back combination of a pastel-hued knotted shirt, pleated skirt, floppy hat and large tote.

Go for an evening stroll in this light grey pullover with a smart mandarin collar. Sporty and effortlessly chic, it’ll also keep you warm.

If a plain blazer feels too ordinary for date night at the trendiest joint in town, throw on this military-styled jacket instead, which is adorned with large buttons, and touches of silver and gold. Pair it with striped trousers and an over-sized bag, and you’re good to go.

With its unconventional geometric prints and bold contrast of colours, this ensemble is perfect for quirky dressers. Rock this look for your next date to the theatre — you’ll fit right in with the artsy, hipster crowd.

Breezy, beautiful and feminine, this blue dress is ideal for a romantic dinner date at a classy restaurant. Its vibrant prints also add a playful touch.
