Brandwatch: Spring 14’s key menswear brands - Farrell, Ben Sherman and J Lindeberg

This week’s selection of spring 14’s key menswear brands.

Farrell

Farrell

Now in its sixth season, Farrell’s spring 14 collection has seen creative director Ben Dickens’ penchant for a parka - he was previously Burberry’s outerwear design director - come through in a nostalgia-tinged range. Jackets vary from workwear-inspired cropped styles to smart macs and the aforementioned parkas. Trousers are cropped at the ankle and the requisite biker jacket is clean and neat. Mainly muted tones of grey, beige and blue (from baby to navy) are lifted by a zingy yellow. The accessories look particularly fine.

Wholesale prices £17.50 for a vest to £139 for the glider parka

Parachute is the name of Ben Sherman’s spring 14 collection, which has seen the brand develop a printed nylon that is overlaid on simple jackets (including a trans-seasonal technical parka with a removable lining), button-down collar shirts and short blazers. The parachute design crops up as fun repeats and full-bleed macro prints. Textured mercerised cotton knits and a cracking rucksack add depth to a range full of sunset shades such as washed pink and muted mustards.

Wholesale prices £18 for a T-shirt to £134 for outerwear

Head designer Jessy Heuvelink’s spring 14 collection is inspired by the anatomy of insects. “The proportions, colours and joints [of the insects] translate into cut lines, shapes and different volumes,” says Heuvelink. This influence is most obvious in an embroidered and printed bug motif while the iridescent jewel tones reference insects’ eyes and shells. Outerwear is key, with tailored blazers rubbing shoulders with nylon bombers.

Wholesale prices £13 for a T-shirt to £342 for a suit made in Loro Piana cloth
