Wine Country

Pore over the possibilities of wine for winter.

 

From burgundy to merlot—and every wine-soaked shade in between—it seems the hue de grape is crushing the competition in menswear this season, and not surprisingly. It’s the labels often associated with highsociety soirees (think Versace and Roberto Cavalli) that are most intoxicated by the hue. So why is the jet set so hype? Besides the color’s complementary effect on pale winter skin, it also works wonders as a stand-in for standard black. And while we loved the catwalk’s take on the trend—sleek suits and fitted playboy blazers—we think wine is just as fine for everyday pieces like sweaters, scarves and vests.
