These Perry Ellis Prints are Kind of Perfect

It’s very likely you’ve heard the name Perry Ellis before. Actually, you probably own something Perry Ellis. But do you know about the man behind the brand? Probably not very well, so here’s a brief history lesson for you. Perry Ellis was an American designer who launched his namesake line in 1976. After nearly a decade of collections and awards, Ellis was elected president of the CFDA (Council of Fashion Designers of America) in 1984. Today, his brand is a household name.

And the Perry Ellis legacy for designing simple yet well done men’s fashion lives on. Under the creative direction of CMO Doug Jakubowski, it has evolved leaps and bounds under the Very Perry Ellis brand identity executed in the fall 2012 collection. Created for the man who understands and appreciates style but doesn’t let his closet run his life, the brand’s design philosophy is pretty flawless.

So of course when we saw Perry Ellis’ lively prints this season, we were fully on board to integrate some pieces into our summer wardrobe. Patterned shirts, both short and long sleeve, are great for adding a little fun to denim and chinos alike. But it’s not all about outward appearances. Suits and slacks are carefully detailed with printed fabric inside the garment, so only you know it’s there unless you want someone else to see (hint, hint). Everything is designed with your busy schedule in mind too – most outfits constructed from these pieces will take you from the office to happy hour and beyond. Groggily digging through your closet in the morning just got a whole lot simpler.
