NUMBER: Lab

BEACH LIFE
New York:
Number Lab designer Luis Fernandez showed a collection that seemed to draw inspiration from two distinct leisure lifestyles — the lifeguard-surfer and the athletic yacht owner. An emphasis on innovative composite and technical materials helped unify the show, with utilitarian luxury items like a double-breasted linen/wool/poly blazer or a hooded jacket made from polyurethane bridging the gap between yacht captain and beach bum. Clean unfussy basics like raglan t-shirts and unstructured cotton suits helped balance the more outlandish fabrics, while colors like bright safety orange or navy blue hinted at maritime safety gear. The collection featured two standout collaborations: the “tech espadrille” made for the brand by Stubbs & Wooton and a black and white graphic print by artist Luis La Piana that covered a cotton vest and blazer. —Andrew Luecke
