We continue to call this spring trends in the classic fashion. Here are samples of three British clothing manufacturer spring collections:
Gieves & Hawkes
theme of the spring collection is traveling and the primary source of inspiration is the British travel journalist Alan whicker. Jackets are the classic cut, but in a sportier version with half-feed systems. The trousers are high cut usually with flat front and color selection are sober with faint hints of pink and light blue. Among accesories, it is primarily the scarf and the retro-inspired sunglasses, which they developed together with England’s leading eyewear manufacturer Cutler & Gross, who excel. On skofronten continues G & H with its highly original “Buckshot brogue”. This spring, however, it is mainly tassel loafers who has been shot to pieces by a shotgun.
G & H works according to the concept of “Slow Fashion”. Everything is thought out and designed to last for several seasons. It is timeless and classic, without being in the vicinity of becoming impersonal and boring. And above all, it is as stylish as usual when it comes Gieves & Hawkes!
Jeremey Hackett have with their beloved Sussex Spaniel Charley and Browney become a familiar face on British menswear. Hackett has successfully created a more youthful brand, strongly associated with polo.
The problem with Hackett is that they stand quite still. I had wished that Hackett ended focus on boring polo shirts and focused more on their part dressed. The spring collections is called the Yacht Club and the French Riviera and, unfortunately, are the official pictures of the collections as pretentious as the names suggest. I do not doubt for a second that Jeremy Hackett can British men’s fashion, but I think way too big focus is put on marks and not on clothes. However, there are some bright spots, particularly among accesories. The floral patterned bow tie and crochet tie the two fun aspects of the collection. Additionally, there are a lot of stylish bags.
Pringle of Scotland
Some who do know how it is possible to combine a youthful style with more stylish fashion is Pringle. Pringles chief designer Clare Weight Keller for the spring collection was inspired by the interior designer David Hicks and actor Terence Stamps style in the 60s and 70s. The latter was at first intended as the protagonist in the movie Alfie, which instead went to his friend Michael Caine.
Earlier we attention Pringles using plastrongen and the three-piece suit in her collection. Otherwise, jackets fairly simple with single button closure and stylish details such as ticket pocket. The fit is a bit slimmer and the silhouette pretty casual with a neat suit jacket shoulders. Together with Harry’s of London has Pringle developed a series of exclusive shoes, among others pyton- and crocodile skin.
Finally, a shopping tip! Turnbull & Asser has opened a web shop so that you all Anglo files can run around in identical shirts that Prince Charles and James Bond.
