Summer Essentials: Safari Print

Still featuring the original colourway as when it first hit the stores just over two decades ago, the Nike Air Max 180 is back with a few alterations. These throwbacks can be traced back to the late 80’s when Nike’s Research and Development team in Oregon set out to better their already pioneering Air Technology. From this, the Air 180 was born with an era of ‘Air-volution’ to follow.

Featuring a combination of suede, textile and a metallic mesh upper, comfort is the least of your worries. The shoe also boasts the original visible Air Max 180 degrees unit at the heel giving maximum impact protection.

Army print has been over done this winter, so for Spring/Summer it is time for us to welcome a new print into our wardrobes. Taking it’s inspiration from urban jungles and the depths of Africa, safari print is slowly making it’s way from the catwalk and into our high streets. Using a similar colour palette to the army trend, khaki, brown and beige remain popular this Summer as safari makes it’s mark.

The great thing about the Safari trend is it can be as subtle or as outgoing as you like. This safari print shirt from Topman is a great example of how you can take on the safari trend without going too overboard.

Safari isn’t just about clothing getting the right accessories is key. Nixon have a great selection of safari inspired items from headphones to The Time Teller Acetate in Tortoise. The subtle animal print fits perfectly into the safari trend and the smooth finish offers a classic edge.
