    Every great international design house has its own personality – its stylistic DNA. Once recognized, that signature becomes unmistakable. And yet, every season also has its common trends. Bombers and soft jackets are once again obligatory, but now in satin nylon or other lightweight warm-weather fabrics. Shorts are everywhere. The new approach to a summer suit is to buy the jacket and trousers separately and wear them as you wish – call it the deconstructed approach to dressing.

    Mackage gives you two jackets in one – a reversible bomber with one side in plain olive-coloured satin nylon, and the other in a lively palm-leaf print in coral and khaki brown.

    New to Harry Rosen (at our Pacific Centre, Vancouver, store), Thom Browne is a designer who delights in bucking trends. That’s his dachshund, Hector, embroidered in gold on the cropped, wide-fit seersucker jacket. Matching seersucker shorts have a fashion forward schoolboy appeal. Thom Browne jacket, shorts and shirt available in-store only.

    Reacting against the trim silhouette of the last few years, Lanvin plays games with proportion. The shirt is cropped short but boasts two oversized pockets. The super-lightweight, hooded windbreaker is deliberately loose, creating a cool urban look with a pair of utility shorts. Lanvin bomber, shirt, and shorts available in-store only. Lanvin sneakers available online.

    Emporio Armani’s version of the modern suit includes a completely unstructured jacket and casual drawstring trousers in flyweight cotton. Wearing it with a fine-gauge wool cotton hoodie adds an athleisure feel for a look that’s simultaneously relaxed and smart. Emporio Armani hoodie is available in store only.

    Do not expect to go unnoticed in this outfit we pieced together from two Dolce & Gabbana runway looks. The polo features playing cards, a theme in this season’s collection, while the printed cotton pants are cuffed and cropped above the ankle.

    Trust TOM FORD to reinvent the iconic jean jacket but in soft, supple powder blue “cashmere suede” instead of denim. With the subtle influence of tailored clothing (the fit of the shoulder, the suppression of the waist), it feels sculpted to your body. Pair it with jeans and splendid green leather loafers. Mr. Ford calls this fuchsia fabric “lightweight, summertime, daytime velvet.” Despite those peaked lapels, the jacket has nothing to do with evening dress; wear it over a henley and five-pocket pants.

    “Waikiki” says the T-shirt from Dsquared2’s new collection, and Hawaii inspired the floral print on the front of the varsity bomber. The jeans are typical of the brand – extra distressed with paint splatters and reversed patches. Dsquared2 bomber, and jeans available online soon.

    Perfect for a dinner party, Versace’s cobalt blue seersucker jacket offers a dramatic contrast to the signature renaissance pattern and sheen of the printed silk shirt. Slim-fit white denims are a summer essential.
