London Collections: Men – Oliver Spencer Autumn/Winter 2014 collection
After a 25 minute delay thanks to a hot water pipe busting in spectacular, the Oliver Spencer show for his latest Autumn/Winter 2014 collection got underway to a packed house. With a soundtrack that was underpinned by a live performance from Specials’ drummer John Bradbury it was yet another fantastic show.
For this season, London based designer has found his inspiration in the works of Le Corbusier, primarily in his urban renewal projects and his modular design principals. With this in mind, fabrications have been re-worked with new weaving techniques – there’s a new take on the classic Herringbone and elsewhere rhythm and repetition inspire the season’s patterns and prints.
Spencer’s soft tailoring once again came to the fore and things felt more relaxed whilst still being considered. There was plenty of colour throughout, with charcoal, navy blue and forest green acted as the collection’s foundation and shades of caramel and rust punctuating the more somber tones – there was even a nod towards Tartan in the outerwear.
