What happens when the Californian surfy exotic beach life meets the exquisite tailoring “Made In Italy” quality? A brand new strictly for men beachwear capsule collection, designed by John Malkovich, is the answer.

The award winning actor/producer/director launches a vast collection, a blend of loose and rather simple cuts made from fine materials and textiles. The offering consists of 17 Italian-made pieces, including swim shorts, lightweight summer jackets, handkerchiefs and shirts, full of eye-catching yet stunning patterns -perfect clothes for the most demanding dandies of style. The Technobohemian capsule collection is available -exclusively- on yoox.com, since mid-March 2013.

“This capsule collection for yoox.com is based on drawings, recent and past. I always mistrust anyone describing to me what they have done, what it means, and what I should feel about it, so I assume others feel that way also. However, I will try to describe it as simply as possible. This is a small collection of light, wearable summer clothing and accessories, from some of our favorite fabric mills in Italy. Some are colourful, some are more discreet. The fit is comfortable and not overly structured, and hopefully easily paired with most anything”, said Malkovich.
