All-American brand Nautica have long been a fusion of street style and prep. Founded in 1983, its premium offering of cult essentials and sailing-inspired threads have become an icon of the ’80s and now, the apparel label are diving back into the archives. With its vintage-inspired looks still in demand today, Nautica is relaunching ‘Nautica Competition’.

First originating in the ’90s as a sportswear sub-label, the dubbed Nautica Competition line drew a cult following in urban streetwear. Back for round 2, the line revisits the original reference of competitive sailing infused with modern activewear. Giving the collection streetwear appeal, big logos meet with bold colour-blocking for a nostalgic re-run of classic silhouettes.

Along with the strong aesthetic, the collection is high-performance too. From quick-dry swim shorts, pique-cooling t-shirts and tough windbreakers, you can rely on the threads for on and off the water. Adding to its offerings, Nautica Australia will also introduce Basketball boot inspired sneakers, slides, caps and bags.
