Lou Dalton Spring-Summer 2016 collection

For LOU DALTON, Spring/Summer 2016 is about defining the essentials of a man’s wardrobe: the lightweight blazer; the Harrington jacket; the striped knit; the utilitarian shirt; the tailored cargo pant. These are pieces that carry their heritage with them, from the origins and traditions of tailoring and functionality – the backbone of LOU DALTON - to the dress codes of the Casuals and the late 80s/early 90s rave scene.

“This is a collection for men who love clothes, and all the memories their clothing evokes. It’s recalling that feeling of coming of age, that euphoria in a place where you belong,” says LOU. Tailoring is lightweight and functional, from the navy blazer in breathable technical cloth with a welt trim from the shoulder down to the sleeve, to the featherlight bellow pocket technical blazer with matching cargo pants. Zip-up Harrington jackets are at the heart of the collection, treated like a piece of tailoring itself.

They come in a variety of cloths, with bellow pockets as detail. A Prince of Wales breathable technical fabric feels like silk, the lines of the check strict on a trouser, becoming pleasingly distorted on a bellow-pocket blouson. Featherlight nylon is used for hooded parkas and top coats, the strict cut giving masculine toughness to a soft fabric, while clear plastic rave macs are perfect for layering.

A distorted madras print has been specially drawn, bringing vivid orange or blue to the collection. Meanwhile a sky-blue waffle cotton mix is used for shorts and trackpants. Oversized cotton knits come in wide horizontal stripes of white, blue and burnt orange, while fine cotton knits are printed with the distorted Madras check. Bucket hats finish the look, along with bellow pocket functional nylon backpacks with all the internal pockets for modern-day life.
