Although the original Matinique label was founded by Niels Martinsen in 1973, it wasn’t until decades later that it was revamped by Claus Bendixen and split into two distinct lines: the Black and Blue labels. Matinique Black Label is described as “city smart formalwear,” and includes full suits, sharp blazers, khakis and some more casual polos and short-sleeve button-downs. The Summer 2009 campaign, set against the backdrop of a beachside photoshoot, evokes a well-heeled traveler taking a first-class holiday, a circumstance in which many of the pieces from the Black Label would be ideal. Not afraid to bring in bright color in turquoise ties, rich blue and red blazers and plaid Harrington jackets, the Black label collection seems tailor made for a summer seaside getaway. Matinique Black Label is available at over 830 shops in 20 countries, concentrated mostly in Europe. For purchasing information, visit the Black Label site.
