The first light of dawn gently illuminates the city, still silent and tucked under a cover of morning mist. A man’s gaze unfolds, undisturbed, over an urban landscape: avenues come to life as the dark of night abdicates to colors, shapes and details. It is a moment of awakening – a pageant of chiaroscuro that replays in cities across the globe as they reveal their true appearances.
Tailoring starts out clean, almost puritanical; austere. Precisely cut double-breasted jackets are worn over ivory leather bib-fronted shirts with slim fitted trousers finished with a broad, leather stripe. Long tailored coats with peak lapels and equally pared down trouser suits are cut in bonded black and scarlet leather. Outerwear is re-constructed: pieced and patched in camel and differing scales of Prince of Wales check in graphic shades of black, scarlet and ivory. An oversized cotton gabardine trench coat is reversed and inset with a wool silk jacquard patchwork of contrasting check. Cotton broderie anglaise shirts are paired simply with white poplin cropped trousers or layered with Fair Isle-inspired knits, one of which is pieced and patched together from socks, the once heel now forming the elbow.
