Folklore

A true presentation, the dark room quickly came to life, with bright lights instantly warming the industrial space, and The Turbans’ worldly folk sound. All eyes were fixed on the runway for Oliver Spencer’s FW15 collection, with the scene set for mulled tones of blue and burgundy, with a standout ensemble a navy and mustard patterned suit with combo bomber jacket and/or trench coat.

The atmosphere was engaging; a comfort exuded in the lineup of double-breasted grey tweed coats and relaxed oversized rollneck sweaters. Tapered, cuffed and quilted trousers in navy, dark grey and olive varieties are a dream for the colder months, while still maintaining a streamlined and effortless feel with flashes of red, and dashes of striped patterns where necessary. Epitomised for his present-day take on archetypal menswear, Oliver Spencer’s FW15 collection blends textures to complement an outfit or style, challenging concepts over construction.
