S ophisticated classics and simple basics focus on everyday comfort, utilising optimum blend yarns and innovative finishing, taking casual and formalwear fabrics to a premium level.
Fabric textures and finishes move between the smooth and soft textured, the technical and sensuous. Dimensional crepe has a pleasing tactile,refined satin, and viscose have a luxurious character, and silky-smooth mercerised cottons are key, along performance polyesters and stretch elastanes .
A gently casual soft tailoring is evoked trough paper-touch, softly fabrics. Cotton blends with modal, viscose and polyamide offer a softer hand-feel with a more technical and mouldable quality.
S/S 17 sees a return to a romantic palette of whisper-light pastels.
A minimal palette of both neutral and warm, unusual tones that add a sophisticated vibe to the summer season.
Also, a palette of saturated brights, primary pops as tomato red, sunshine yellow and cobalt blue create an energetic appeal, while midnight blacks and chalky whites in sumptuous materials touch on a luxurious mood.
Fabrics with a jersey touch-look feel, in plain or melange are still a very important element in our collection.
Micro-padded and dimensional surfaces, fine double-fabrics.
Yarns are mainly natural, with cotton being the main fibre, followed by linen and rayon, rustic summer tweeds.
Indigo is also a predominant look.
Bold, graphic prints also continue but emerge in the form of spliced stripes and pattern primary-bright colour blocking, for a sporty, graphic look.
Mid to large-scale stripes are key, madras plaid and over-checks, along with the classic gingham checks.
Pinstriped suitings break away from the conservative business look, creating fresh shapes with a feminine sensitivity. Fine vertical stripes dominate, with navy and black sartorial updated using broken stripe designs and micro-macro stripe combinations,
Shadow prints or extra-weft dobby patterns utilise monochrome shading to caste subtle impressions of dimensional embossing.
Cotton, silk and linen blends are refreshed with irregular, stitch-effect dobby stripes offering a pretty everyday look.
