So, if you have read this blog before you will know that I am a big fan of the Hentsch Man brand and did a nice little interview with Alexia Hentsch a couple of months back…well a couple of weeks ago I popped down to the Hentsch Man studio to have a look at the new AW12 collection, and I’m pleased to report its bloody brilliant.
Now, I always prefer Autumn/Winter collections as there is so much more opportunity for creativity through the use of layering. One of the main things that I enjoyed about the collection was the fabrics choices: flannels, herringbones, checked cottons, denim, tweed, and jersey fabrics, that were all styled together in a creative way as you will see from the photos below!
The Bespoke Gentleman’s Top Picks - Grey pleated trousers, Grey speckled jacket, 4-button double-breasted jacket, burgundy sweater, all the flannel shirting and a fantastic jersey blazer that would probably stand out as my favourite piece of the collection, sublime! Now I’m not going to blether on too much about it, I’m going to let the lookbook photos do the talking, Enjoy!
On other Hentsch Man news, the day that I turned up at the Hentsch Man studio, they had just finished shooting Tom Aitken’s and his team for his new restaurant at 43 Elystan Street, with which Hentsch Man were chosen to design all the staff uniforms, which is pretty damn cool…So if you want to eat some great food and look at some fine clothing then head down to Tom’s restaurant.
Finally, I would like to thank Alexia, Camilla and Lea for showing me through the collection, your all such lovely ladies…I had a great time!
