Richard Anderson x Barry Kamen AW14 Collaboration
The address Savile Row is synonymous with the finest luxury tailoring in the world, and without a doubt the place to be, if you are looking for the full bespoke experience. With a reputation for the traditional, we are always pleased to see an effort to do something different so are thrilled with the collaboration between Richard Anderson and Barry Kamen.
Since its 2001 launch, the tailoring house of Richard Anderson made a name for itself as the first Savile Row to uphold tailoring and craftsmanship whilst also trying to modernise and bring menswear into the 21st century. For AW14 the house has teamed up with artist Barry Kamen who is best known for his part in the 1980s Buffalo style movement and his work with style bibles i:D and The Face. Kamen also styled and directed the lookbook shoot.
The result is a campaign imagery that lets the masterful cut of the clothes do the talking. Free flowing handwriting (Shakespeare in case you forgot your Year 9 English Literature) emphasis the nature of the clothes and the handmade expertise that goes into creating a Richard Anderson suit. Turning to the clothes themselves, there is a great deal here that we at MFM can see ourselves wearing.
Top of the wish list has to be the superb six button black double breasted jacket with tailored wool trousers as well as the strong houndstooth overcoat which make a bold winter style statement. There is also a great range of evening pieces (perfect for that looming Christmas party) and we can see the likes of Mr Tinie Tempah snapping up the black sequinned evening suit in a heartbeat.
