For one of the most British of brands, Gieves & Hawkes’ Autumn/Winter collection marks a return to its roots, a shift away from the Continent. ‘Britishness is hard to capture, and easy to get wrong, but it’s also unique in its eccentricity and fun,’ says the company’s senior designer, Edward Finney. ‘You don’t get fun in any other nation’s sense of dress.
J.M. Weston, traditional shoemaker for more than 120 years, enhances and reinterprets classic codes with audacity through the impetus of its Artistic Director Michel Perry.

Each new style, new leather, new detail of manufacturing is conceived in its workshops to enhance the feet of men and women. More than just a shoe, the loafer, derby or oxford shoe become a walking companion, a reflection of an easy-going lifestyle and of resolute elegance.
The style narrative that Cesare Attolini is presenting for Fall-Winter 2017/2018 gives full expression to all the meaningful, distinctive values that have always been essential elements of the brand’s cultural matrix.

This is the backdrop upon which this season’s Missoni Man comes to life.
For his Autumn/Winter 2017 collection show on the catwalk of London Fashion Week Men’s, E. Tautz designer Patrick Grant was inspired by men from the countryside. However, this “man” is of the intimate kind; in order to put a modern spin on his collection’s traditional silhouettes, Grant looked at the garb of scarecrows in the countryside of Leeds as depicted by photographer Peter Mitchell in his series “Some Thing Means Everything to Somebody.” The result was elegant wool coats, tailored anoraks, high-waisted belted trousers and open collars that were loosely layered to create the laid back, but fully modern look.
