FALL / WINTER 2015 – 2016
For this season the modern gentleman is an edgy urbanite
at times and a romantic wanderer at others. He reveals a
bright and creative side inspired by modern art and the
electric days of 60’s pop-culture. Silhouettes are streamlined
for retro effect. Prints and palettes take a cue from the arts
with painterly strokes and bold punchy shades. References
of the great outdoors offer the perfect occasion to rug up
with generous coats in blanket check patterns. There are new
exciting fabrications, which are both refined and playful. For the
party season we toast the wild nights ahead with feather motifs,
elegant suits and dandy accessories to match.
BOHEMIAN GENTLEMAN / DEL. 07
Our bohemian gent is marked by a youthful joie de vivre.
A born romantic and an intrepid traveller he has gathered a
trove of inspiration from the eclectic world around him. We see
classic prints such as camouflage and paisley reimagined in a
painterly way. He creates refined textured layers: a crisp shirt
and woollen knits elegantly topped off with an unconstructed
blazer. The overall silhouette is polished and put together yet
appears charmingly undone. Colours are deep and muted with
military inspired tones of army green, olive and khaki paired
with winter mauve, rich burgundy and fresh pops of mint green.
MODERN RETRO PUNCH / DEL. 08
The modern retro gentleman has bold art-school charm,
inspired by minimalist design and 60’s pop he inhabits a world
filled with glorious colour and jazzy beats. The silhouette
hints at a mod revival with retro-streamlined styles, which
are given a contemporary update with oversized jackets and
longer length tees. In this delivery tonal layering is executed
as an art form revealing an obsession with textures and
shades. Prints are geometric and abstract while the palette
is a punchy mix that aims for maximum contrast. We see
bold combinations of atomic orange alongside Danish blue
or an unexpected twist with fresh mint and deep purple.
RESORT 22 / DEL. 10
Let’s get dressed up in the most fantastical way and lead a
flamboyant life, even if it’s only for one night. Take style
inspiration from Mick Jagger, rocking the stage fuelled by
70’s glam and fame. We offer new silhouettes with silk
bomber shirts, subdued jacquards and sensational t-shirts
with muted sequins. Choosing the perfect party night outfit
is easy with a selection of sharply tailored blazers and wool
suits. The colour card is as enigmatic as the night with hints
of luxury blue and glamorous highlights of gold.
CITY NOMADIC ESCAPE / DEL. 09
With city wits and outdoor smarts our urban no-mad takes
cues from both worlds. Passing city limits and heading
into nature he is inspired by wild rugged references of
Americana. The out-of-doors inspiration is reflected in
oversized down jackets, bouclé textured sweaters and
blanket inspired checks. Materials boast their natural roots
with wool, shearling and leather. We head back to the urban
landscape of the city with 70’s rock inspired artworks and
grainy graphic prints. The palette borrows generously from
nature with colours such as moon rock, bone white and
shearling melange; these tones are offset with racy shades
of aurora red and electric blue.
