Refined and utterly contemporary, HUGO takes Hugo Boss' emphasis on tailoring and interjects it with youthful energy, rendering garments in sharp cuts and clean designs with a pronounced casual edge. Under the guidance of new Chief Brand Officer Ingo Wilts, HUGO menswear deftly addresses the shrinking space between the workday and the weekend, re-animating classic ready-to-wear staples with a fluid, confident of-the-moment feel. Hybridized, high-rise cropped, slim-fit, and tapered denim and lounge pants, tightly cut crewneck t-shirts, and boxy turtleneck pullovers illustrates the diffusion line’s well-executed balancing act between contemporary tailoring and revived signature 80’s and 90’s silhouettes. The smart interplay between brand heritage and contemporary update is reflected in outerwear as well, as storm-flap accented trench coats, perfectly minimal bomber jackets, and sleek wool coats are carefully reimagined for the modern man. Select pieces make use of punky scribbled-on designs and the line’s updated logo, refreshing the brand’s design language further. Rendered in the strong monochromatic hues associated with the house, HUGO's collections cut a strong form, rejecting following in favor of taking the lead.
