Gieves & Hawkes Spring Summer 2015
There’s been a lot of talking about Italian tailoring lately on the blog because of my liking to this particular silhouette. Today we will look into something different, and instead steer to the coast of England where Gieves & Hawkes shot their latest campaign.
For the latest lookbook from Gieves & Hawkes, creative director Jason Basmaijan takes us to an English summer on the coast, starred by British models Tom Warren, Mattehew Holt and Harvey Newton-Haydon. In this beautiful scenery the boys shows one of the finest English clothing that’s available, dressed in different tones and shades of blue, grey and sand. The suits have a subtle texture to them but also a softer shape with inspiration from the Italian silhouette.
Most of the garments are made in Italy but the eveningwear is hand-made in England since a few seasons back. Casualwear features the Savile Row precision, both in terms of fabric and quality. Some of the outwear such as the duffle-macs and peacoats are offered with sealed seams with the weather resistance storm system wool from Italian Loro Piana. Everything from the suits to the knitted ties is styled in a monochromatic way, something that’s been seen a lot during the last year in the fashion industry.
