Somehow, I ended up reviewing nearly all the menswear, (Jill did you revise the list?!) Not that I'm complaining, I love menswear! As a personal shopper, it's my favourite!
I was looking for innovation and creativity, but I also wanted garments that were well cut, and would be satisfied with commercially viable pieces. I found these in James Hawkes.
I don't know what he was inspired by, but to me there was a definite Pop Art feel, with oversized sleeve heads that had Pop-esque style jaggedy edges. Almost like big cartoon 'bang' signs. Well cut bomber jackets were teamed with waterproof skinny cut trousers and oversized shirting. 80's colours were in attendance, with rusty metallic silver and blue grey making the main colour palette. A fun collection that was both innovative and well designed.
