The outdoorsman in me loves all the pieces in the kick-ass Belstaff Autumn-Winter 2015 Menswear collection under the direction of Fred Dryr, Belstaff's new Vice President of Men's Design. Very true to the British motorbike racing heritage of Belstaff but more importantly great combinations of fabrics, textures and patterns.
Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli of Valentino have a definite impact and influence on what trickles down to fashion and textiles in a broader, more accessible world of massed produced clothing. Their Valentino Pre-Fall 2015 Womenswear collection was a feast for the senses; the use of pattern and colours, the proportions, the combinations of fabrics and embellishment, the styling, the creativity in collaborating with UK textile designer Celia Birtwell for the floral prints and embroideries. Very pretty.
Pringle of Scotland's A/W 2015 Menswear Collection features a gorgeous array of men's ready-to-wear, with intricate knitted and woven fabrics, beautiful outerwear, topcoats and knits. Pringle excels at developing unique fabric textures and great styling, all under the direction of Massimo Nicosia. Take influence from the subtle colour palette of this beautiful double-faced topcoat worked in a fine gauge knit braided cable stitch, tonal argyle turtleneck sweater and pumice wool cuff pants.
