THE SYNTHETIC TRANSITION TO LUXURY
Once upon a time, synthetic materials were considered far from luxury. This year, we’ve seen synthetic fashion flood the market at London Fashion Week. Never has nylon been so cool.
In London this January we saw the strongest case yet that synthetic materials have properly cracked high-end fashion, especially when it comes to coats. Nylon is no longer a dirty word. In fact, it was everywhere. From Kiko Kostadinov’s quilted tracksuits designed in collaboration with Asics (the new power suit?), to the sepulchral shapes of *A Cold Wall, where rough and worn ultra-long-line parkas with frayed hems and in-built compasses were styled with mock necks and nylon windbreaker trousers.
50 Shades of green
You heard it here first, green is back! Traditionally, green is not the go to in your wardrobe. Often people opt for more subtle colours, black, white and navy but recently there has been a push on the colour green. We think (when used right) that the colour green can be the perfect addition to your outfit, however, it’s much more difficult to pair with other colours.
a brave new era for tailoring
It only seems fitting that a new era to tailoring is born in London, home to Savile Row. This years tailoring goes against tradition – a new era for suits, featuring oversized jackets, trousers and shirts, excessive collars and a metallic urban-chic coating. We are huge fans of this rebellious new look for suits and hope it brings a new era of tailoring into the world.
