Ben Sherman Autumn/Winter 2012

July 11, 2012

I was privy to this range a few months back, when I was invited to a location in Shordich where Ben Sherman were holding their first ever catwalk show. Everyone there was made to wear a white boiler
suit for the occasion (due to a fake snow storm at the end), as their Autumn/Winter 2012 came down
a runway made of broken slate.

The look and feel of what was on show that evening had a clear feeling of Britishness, taking its inspiration from the Mods and Rockers of the 1960’s and the pride that both parties took in their appearance. I’ll admit that I found the styling of the show more immediate than I do these images but that’s a small point considering there’s plenty of lovely pieces in the range to cherry pick.

There’s elements of tailoring, mixed with the simple casualness of turned up denim (in either raw or pre-distressed styles, a few of which are held up with braces) and biker boots, or the crispness of tapered chinos sat atop brothel creepers, and teamed up with elegant shirting under lovely jackets. It’s a collection of colliding styles and one that’s all the better for it.

Outewear consists of cotton rain coats, Shearling collared, or wool/leather bomber jackets and a total peach of a parka. There’s checks aplenty – whether typical black/white checkerboard style on knitwear and jackets, or more colourful plaids on shirts. And finally a smattering of accessories like bags, belts and hats round off this latest collection.

    i know what you mean regarding the styling but it’s really grown on me, it’s just refreshing to see a looser set to strides
