ESCAPE THE CITY
Our Menswear Autumn 2017 story, Escape the City, takes it’s inspiration from the wildness of nature, and from those who brave the elements and thrive in its hostile environment. Nature’s hyper-real textures take centre stage and influence surface patterning. Bark, lynch and landscape contouring produce a canvas of camouflages. Natural textures are recreated through quilting, ribbing, mark making and coloured ombrés.
Garments are prepared both for urban functionality and the extremes of the natural world, featuring practical utility detailing. The earthy shades witnessed as late summer transforms into autumn inspire our colour palette. Type is used minimally, and is functional and regimented where present whilst accents of illustration, mostly embroidered patches and badges, provide an opportunity for personal customisation.
