Smith-Wykes Autumn/Winter 2014 collection – behind-the-scenes film
Here’s a behind-the-scenes look at Smith-Wyke’ Autumn/Winter 2014 collection. The inspiration for the collection came from the disruptive pattern designs by Norman Wilkson, which were used on boats extensively through World War I. And this bold and graphic print finds itself utilised throughout the range.
Fabrication is just as important as pattern however, with Wool flannel, Cashmere, cotton twill and micro-jacquard being used on pieces that span outerwear, knits, shirts and soft tailoring. As always,the brand play with cut and proportion, encouraging “oversized shapes, new cropped lengths, tucking and volume”. Have a look at the above video to see exactly what I’m talking about.
