Edward Crutchley presented Autumn Winter 2017/18 collection during London Collections: Men. Inspired by late Renaissance portraiture, archival English silks, Greek antiquities and the 90s heyday of MTV, the collection is a mixture of old craftsmanship with something current, compelling and chic.
The AW17 collection is all pomp and circumstance, with references ranging from the riddling symbolism of Elizabeth I’s Rainbow Portrait to the grace of Bruegel’s Hunters In The Snow; from the vivid flora of textile designer Anna Maria Garthwaite to Miss Marple’s fictional village of St Mary Mead; from a Fustanella swaying with pride to the zeros of Korean Hanbok. The collection features luminous technical silk jacquard, pressed wool blanketing, 18th century inspired florals printed onto fluid silk; slick high-shine nylon and ultra soft cashmere. This is trans-seasonal dressing, with oversized bombers, fitted wrap vests and a new slant on reductionist tailoring. – from Edward Crutchley
