Oliver Spencer SS13 – Clean Cut Daywear Mens Fashion

Oliver Spencer SS13 – Clean Cut Daywear

Presented at the Old Sorting Office in London, Oliver Spencer,  a self taught tailor and menswear designer,  the SS13 show, was a colour-blocked artist’s palette  collection of contemporary 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.
