Victor Glemaud is a busy man, between designing his own collection and his work at Tommy Hilfiger. And so, when he decided to expand his knit-heavy collection, it made sense to enlist the help of a few well-chosen collaborators. Glemaud's brightly colored board shorts for Spring were done with Quiksilver; his macs were courtesy of Mackintosh; and his contrast-collar, button-front shirts were by Gitman Brothers. "I wanted to do board shorts, so I had the best board-shorts maker do them with me," Glemaud said, adding that the prints "were a real collaboration." The same was apparent of the coats—no one does a mac like Mackintosh—and the VG part of the equation came in the form of a hood on the navy version and the mustard-tan color scheme of another. Knits are Glemaud's strong suit, and here he stood alone. Cobalt outlines on a navy field stood in for his signature double cardigan (also offered in black and white), and horizontal stripes ruled the rest: on tank tops, polos, and pretty much every permutation of cashmere. Citing a recent trip to Rome as his inspiration, the designer said, "I love the way men there do it in the summer. It's sensual but not overtly sexy." I'd say he was onto something. — Josh Peskowitz  (men.style.com) Pics after the jump.
