The New Traveller Collection: A Wardrobe Made For The Modern Traveller

3 Sep 2019

Imagine combining efficiency and elegance in every moment of everyday life—from the hustle and bustle of the airport to the more formal affair of a boardroom business meeting. Now it’s possible thanks to the new Traveller collection designed exclusively by Simons!

Have you ever, inadvertently or not, thrown a knit into the washing machine or arrived at the office with a wrinkled shirt that didn’t look the way it did when you left your house that morning? Make way for THE solution to these everyday issues: A wardrobe made of smart fibers that’ll simplify the life of the modern man on the go. Cardigans, shirts, pants, blazers, suits, jackets, and T-shirts are all included in this collection that prioritizes comfort and functionality without losing the least bit of elegance and style. Its key points? Innovative materials, practical details, pieces that are easy to care for, and fabrics that let you move freely.

Machine-Washable Merino Wool (Yes, It’s Possible!)

Have you heard about merino wool? Naturally stretchy, it adapts to your movements and maintains its shape over time. In addition to being absorbent, it’s breathable and effective at releasing moisture, which leaves you feeling fresh and also helps keep you dry. But this season, H2Dry merino wool is making its debut. Besides having all its original technical properties, it’s easy to care for! In other words, it doesn’t require any special maintenance.

Whether you wear it all the time or wash it frequently, this H2Dry merino wool will keep its natural elasticity and original beauty. What more could you ask for? Oh yeah, it’s also wrinkle-resistant!

Another new arrival: the pure merino wool T-shirt. A cross between a T-shirt and a sweater, this jersey made with a soft, lightweight wool will layer beautifully under blazers for a modern and utterly versatile style. And it was developed in our studios!
 

Everyday Performance Shirts

Got your boarding pass? Don't take off without our satiny oxford shirt! It has stretchy microperforated inserts on the sides that allow heat to escape and for you to move more freely. This is how it guarantees you're comfortable at all times and in all conditions. What's more, it is also equipped with a hidden pocket at the back that's perfect for carrying your passport and small reflective details that make you visible when hailing a cab. 

Another breakthrough in the collection, the water-repellent shirt. Yes, you read that right! This shirt is cut from a fabric that’s been treated so that water will slide off instead of penetrating the material. Already familiar with Le 31’s easy-care shirts? They have a special coating that prevents unwanted wrinkles. In short, they are easy-care and non-iron. Discover this season’s new patterns and colors.

Stretchy and Smart Mechanical Fiber

Comfort and extreme durability are what set our stretch wool Traveller suit appart! It’s impossible not to have one in your closet. Cut from a luxurious 100% Italian wool fabric, its mechanical weave makes it utterly stretchy. It’s characterized by its flexibility and high resistance to wrinkles. Thanks to its smart fibers, it maintains its flawless appearance and has got you covered no matter what’s on the day’s agenda.

The functional compartmentalized pockets on the inside of the suit jacket are designed for carrying your passport and phone, so you can keep your hands fully free. Like to go for bike rides in the city? Cuff the hems of your pants and show off the reflective trim that’s on the interior seams so you're visible at night. 

 

Do You Know About Drirelease®?

Performance materials at your service! Drirelease® fabrics are made from a blend of synthetic waterproof fibers (that repel water) and natural hydrophilic fibers (that absorb water). The result? The fibers wick away sweat and move it to the exterior of the fabric, allowing it to evaporate quickly. They dry up to four times faster than cotton in order to keep you comfortable and dry! Need to wash them frequently? No problem! They’ll continue to provide effective and sustainable performance, while always looking their best and being easy to care for. 

Also from the Traveller collection, the Drirelease athletic track jacket and joggers team up to create an outstanding outfit for travelling. In addition to being efficient, these sports-inspired pieces add a casual and carefully considered vibe to this modern look. Their extremely comfortable and pill-resistant fabric is made of a soft and natural blend that ensures you keep cool. Try it—we know you’ll love it!
