English fashion: Hardy Amies
Having written a regular column for Esquire on men's fashion, in 1964, Amies published the book ABC of Men's Fashion. Amies's strict male dress code included commandments on everything from socks to the summer wardrobe. When, in July 2009, the Hardy Amies Designer Archive was opened on Savile Row, the Victoria & Albert Museum reissued the book. He stated, "A man should look as if he has bought his clothes with intelligence, put them on with care and then forgotten all about them."
In 1974, Amies was entered into the Vanity Fair International Best Dressed List Hall of Fame.
The Hardy Amies fall-winter 2015-16 collection was unveiled during this year’s Collections: Men, which took place in January 2015.
The collection featured mostly elegant and sophisticated designs of semi-formal winter outfits that were cut with the great precision of classic British tailoring. The diverse range of formal pants, coats, fur coats, long coats, jackets and sweaters was extremely wearable and had a poetic charm to it. Moreover, even though the idea of pairing a suit with a parka isn’t new, it is always great to see high and low fashion combined, and we think we can agree that a combination of the cosmopolitan and the pastoral is always welcome.
Тhe Hardy Amies fall-winter 2015 collection is a very charismatic collection and a great fashion inspiration for any winter, as it delivered a series of classic, timeless pieces with a modern twist.
