Oliver Spencer SS13 – Clean Cut Daywear Mens Fashion
Oliver Spencer SS13 – Clean Cut Daywear
Inspired by Modernists Ben Nicholson, a painter of abstract compositions and Russian modernism it consisted of clean cut day wear with a vibrant colour palette of burnt orange, electric blue and desert sand. Deconstructed tailoring featured heavily, produced in lightweight tweeds and linens. But the highlight had to be the colour injections, including a fisher jacket, effectively exemplified through the slim-fit of the tailoring.
Shapes were simple, with detailing coming in the form of rough wooden buttons, patchwork pockets and the perpetually turned up trousers. Topman’s Design Director Gordon Richardson walked along the runway, along with the street cast models, wearing the Byron navy travel jacket which is the best selling product in the collection.
The Runswick stone gilet, an unlined Portland jacket single pleat trousers, a striped jumper accessorised with lace-less grain derby shoes.
In true Oliver Spencer fashion he chose not to use your typical model types but rather a diverse selection of ordinary men of all ages and race which added to the charm of the collection. This exciting collection fuses a blend of modest gentry together with modern style.
