Aquascutum Launch SS15 Collection
It might be easy to forget, but the spring season is upon us. Aquascutum want you to get the most out of your wardrobe, and as a result have created an SS15 collection that is both stylish and weather-proof, whilst still retaining that relaxed summer vibe.
Founded in 1851, Aquascutum combines sophisticated elegance with a modern, stylish charm. The brand’s heritage is rooted in its outerwear and tailoring, and the SS15 collection certainly pays homage to this.
As well as the updated classic British rain coats and striking core tailoring, the new collection includes pieces that have an international edge, such as the Carnaby blue suede jacket and the Westbourne leather bomber jacket.
Colour is used effectively, yet subtlety. The palette includes a ‘Grey Melange’, a ‘Cavendish Red’, and a ‘Carnaby Blue’, colours which are effortlessly able to capture the British spring and summer seasons.
Furthermore, the collection boasts the finest materials sourced and manufactured predominantly in England, Italy and Portugal, achieving a high-end look and feel. With a slimmer but traditional fit, the company retain that “The collection is designed for sophisticated stylish men who pay attention to the finer details.”
The brand have accounted for Britain’s slightly more loose definition of ‘summer’ weather by creating an impressive knitwear selection. From light merino wool knits to the Weatherley cashmere fisherman’s knit, the category for this season is ideal for layering over smart shirts, or worn more casually underneath a slub yarn blazer.
Ties come in classic silk, wool and cotton, and an array of colours: brighter geometric prints are included for the more adventurous man. Silk pocket squares, which are available in a variety of designs, are another way to add some style and fun to the classic suit.
If this wasn’t enough, cashmere silk and linen scarves come in new variations of our club check, as well as contemporary geometric prints.
No collection is complete without an exciting array of accessories, and Aquascutum make use of the finest Italian leather for that all important finish. A leather holdall, document wallet and laptop case are all stylish yet understated, and perfect for the style-conscious, professional male.
Looking good comes with its price: the collection is ranged from £550 to £590 for tailoring, £450 to £2500 for outerwear, and £95 to £150 for shirts. However, you can’t put a price on high-end quality and classic designs. Head on over to http://www.aquascutum.com/mens to judge for yourself.
