Casablanca creative director Charaf Tajer found his inspiration for spring/summer 2021 via is last pre-COVID holiday in Hawaii. The collection, named “after the rain comes the rainbow,” serves as a love letter to the world that is in much need of some light.

Vibrant prints adorning the silk shirting, scarves, and denim that we’ve come to love from the label, is updated to the brand’s newest destination – the Surf Club. A psychedelic fuse of rainbow hues gives a glimpse into the magic of nature through lush green tropics to a view of the luxurious surf. Signature silk denotes the Surf Club in blush pink and deep ocean blue, shirting that loyal collectors will match with Tennis Club styles of the previous season.

Fresh, light knitwear for the summer feature signature Casablanca illustrations such as the oranges, the tennis court, as well as new items like a grand ship docking underneath a rainbow symbolizing your arrival in paradise. Knitted polo shirts are decorated with mother of pearl buttons, adding sophistication to the updated classic.

Linen tailoring showcases the evolution in Casablanca suiting with double-breasted suits perfect for a mid-summer evening soiree. A timeless staple, the white suit is updated with a tennis green piped trim.

The collection also introduces a new après sport tracksuit offered in a light technical fabric to suit sizzling temperatures in addition to the popular cashmere terry cloth.

Casablanca also debuted its newest collaboration with New Balance, the 237, presented in burgundy and off-white fashioning the brand monogram along the front and the back of the sneaker. These will be released in early 2021.
