Menswear: Thomas Pink Fall-Winter 2015/2016 collection
Fashion designer Thomas Pink, who presented his Fall-Winter 2015/2016 collection during the London Collections: Men also visited Pitti Immagine Uomo 87.
The Pink story
Mr Pink was an 18th century London tailor who designed the iconic hunting coat. The coat was made of scarlet cloth but was always referred to as PINK in honor of its originator. Scrupulous attention to detail, exclusive fabric and exquisite craftsmanship were the hallmarks of a PINK coat.
For drop one, Thomas Pink was inspired by Sir Michael Caine - one of the sharpest dressers in 1960s London. He avoided the era's peacock style in favour of the kind of restrained but energetic style, which is entirely relevant today, a truly timeless look.
'Key stories in out shirting range are a fine self puppytooth (the Davenport Texture) and satin twill stripe (the Gibson Stripe) represented in both our Classic Fit range and in our Slim Fit range'.
The inspiration came from urban London – the buildings, the bands, the graffiti, the streets.
The key story is an Italian medium size melange windowpane on a twill ground (the Edward Check) alongside a melange two color herringbone (the Deane Texture).
'Furthermore we offer the Indipendent Shirt in the Padua Texture in new updated seasonal colors and in four colors in Classic Fit'.
Drop three is inspired by Sir Alfred Hitchcock, who fashioned for himself a distinctive and recognisable directorial style in his movies.
Stylish pieces that will keep you warm throughout the colder months ahead. Chunky knits to layer up and warmer finish cottons and flannels (the Goldfrey texture). Jackets include a Donegal tweed blazer (the Hebborn Jacket) and a British Flannel blazer (the Chapman Jacket).
In shirting: 'Following up on the Edward Check we introduce a large scale windowpane in bold colors, color-saturated solids on a cotton base with a small color and concealed placket'.
