Design We began the season looking at the work of [graphic designer] Saul Bass, particularly his Hitchcock film posters of the 1950s. There’s a 1940s and 1950s sensibility within the collection. Modern military is another theme we build on each season. Tailoring takes inspiration from the Bass concept, with the inclusion of stripes, and from Hardy Amies himself, with updates of classic Savile Row shapes.
Colours Red, blue and teal green highlight Hardy Amies’ staples of navy, military green and bone.
Fabrics Basket weave and open weave fabrics are key. Hopsacks and canvases in outerwear and high-twist dry wool tropical weaves in light summer weights in tailoring.
Silhouettes The db patch-pocket jacket is a signature piece, coming through in a six-button in suiting and four-button in jacketing. In outerwear our slim bluff four-pocket military jacket is an updated signature style.
Prices No change.
