For the a/w 17 season Savile Row design house, Chester Barrie, blends opulence, elegance and sophistication to create a collection that lends an air of authority and brings a sense of style to gentlemen who know the value of good dressing.
Colour and texture are to the fore in the brand’s jacket collection, with tweeds alongside petrol blue, russet and moss green. Checks and tartans also play their part bringing highlight tones and surface interest. The standout piece of the collection is the camel blazer – a modern interpretation of an almost forgotten classic.
English and Italian cloths have substance but are soft to the touch. Texture is an important element – especially the tweeds and Prince of Wales checks – but it is the construction that makes it distinctive.
Structured suits are strong of shoulder and sculpted at the chest; the unstructured tailoring moulds to the body without restricting movement. Both flatter and enhance; the shallow armhole allows for greater freedom of movement and a trimmer appearance.
