Markaware Autumn/Winter 2012 collection
Okay, so I meant to post this up ages ago but forgot and it’s been languishing in my drafts folder. Well no more. So although you’ve probably seen this by now, here’s the latest Autumn/Winter 2012 collection from Japanese Markaware, a range that’s bursting with fantastic tailoring and classic Menswear.
I really, really like this collection. A lot. Grown up and chock full of beautiful pieces, the inspiration for this latest range is said to come from the French film ‘A Man and a Woman’, directed by Claude Lelouch in 1966. It’s a sophisticated affair, full of tailoring and subtlety detailed staple items and with a typically classic palette, with navy, mid-grey, black and charcoal being the predominant colours.
The line includes various iterations of outerwear – with long tailored coats, Pea coats and blazers coming in Melton wool and tweed. There are more casual jackets included too, with a flight jacket and a leather number (lined in Sheerling) in the mix, plus a short double-breasted mac and a good old Duffel.
Other pieces include shirts in crisp, striped cottons or flannel checks and some lovely suiting. There’s a smattering of denim and knitwear in all of the layering going on and accessories also play a key role with everything from scarves, hats, leather driving gloves and shoes all present in a collection of tasteful and refined menswear.
