Gieves & Hawkes presented their SS14 collection on Sunday night at the David Gill Gallery, Mayfair as part of the London Collections: Men (LCM) programme. I was rather excited to see them present during the three day showcase as this was their first full presentation on the LCM calendar.
You may remember I wrote not that long ago about the well received AW13 collection from Gieves, which I particularly loved. At the time it was Jason Basmajian’s first collection for the brand and Gieves finest for some time, so this definitely upped my anticipation for his follow up collection.
The SS14 collection is inspired by the traditions of bespoke but it is contemporary in its fresh mix of sartorial, military and sportswear styling. Much of the tailoring and shoe collections are also made right here in England. The colours were also a nice change with the main colours on show evolving around soft earth tones, ivory and beige with rose, navy, khaki and dark brown.
Jason Basmajian is definitely onto something here, as I was again very impressed with his latest offering for Gieves. I was talking to Jolyon Bexon (No.1 Savile Row Store Manager) about the collection and how many looks we loved. You could honestly have picked up any outfit for me to wear and I would have been happy, that’s how strong it was. Anyway I won’t go on to much, below are my top five picks from the collection.
Enjoy the photos.
My top five key looks from the collection.
1.) The iconic British trench was a firm favourite – made in featherweight waterproof silk twill.
2.) A lovely double breasted suit in a probable linen/silk mix worn by Gieves man of the moment.
3.) Shawl Lapel dinner jacket – made in raw silk ivory.
4.) The pea coat in tangerine (added a nice touch of colour to the collection).
5.) To many jackets to choose from, so I have a picture of them all together – safari jacket, blouson and chocolate suede jacket.
The above photos are my top five looks, the following photos are other outfits that I enjoyed.
