A bigger splash
Dive into the playful colour palette of David Hockney's pool paintings – not to mention the British artist's own quirky personal style – for a refreshing take on summer men's wear
Bringing together unconventional shades of dusty orange and canary yellow makes for a bold suiting combination.
Off the grid
While pink pants push the envelope on wearability, the real take-away here is the new proportion of these trousers: wider through the ankles and slightly cropped.
The ombré effect of a Jil Sander topper helps to lighten up its deep teal hue for summer.
For a more muted take on the season's palette, pair pale yellow with classic navy and hits of deep red.
Red leather day
Leather can work for warm weather if it's in a unique hue and a more casual cut, such as this Marni shirt jacket.
Texture can make as much of a statement as colour, as evidenced by an Acne Studios' mash up of cotton mesh, rubberized polyurethane and plaid wool pieces.
Take a dip
While socks and sandals might not be every guy's cup of tea, achieving an equally graphic effect is possible via an artful tee and colour-blocked bomber.
