Tiger of Sweden Spring-Summer 2017 collection at London Collections: Men
Founded in Stockholm in 1903 as a men's tailoring brand, the brand has grown over the past century to operate across 3 continents.
Tiger of Sweden Spring-Summer 2017 collection is inspired by Sweden's rich cultural history and Kungliga Slottet (the official residence and major royal palace of the Swedish monarch) - a heady mix of rigidly exuberant Baroque and florid Rococo curves, built between 1700 and 1754.
A Baroque garden-inspired print adorns slick one-and-a-half breasted suits, bombers and windbreakers at the opening of the show, and bright bold stripes adorn blousons and wide leg trousers. Close-cut, clever takes on regency-style mourning suits are worn with nylon field jackets and smart poplin shirts, while baroque-print jacquard tunics come teamed with classic two piece suits. All these contrasts help to create a sense of intricacy and depth - a blend of old and new, minimal and maximal that feels, ultimately, contemporary.
Elsewhere, utilitarian zip-up field vests in monochromatic shades come worn over traditional cotton tailoring, while sheer jumpers are teamed with poplin shirts and high-shine nylon shirt jackets. Suits are worn with sneakers throughout, while cropped postman jackets look utilitarian and simple in contrast to the collection's baggy, shortened and kick flared trousers. Above the knee tailored shorts teamed with pulled up white socks have a boyish charm.
