Kent&Curwen at London Collections: Men

30 May 2014 | + Boyana Dimova

Since 1926, Kent & Curwen has been renowned for producing gentleman's attire that combines sophisticated fabrics and impeccable tailoring with a modern twist.

Clients who have sported Kent&Curwen include HRH the Prince of Wales, HRH the Duke of Edinburgh, Cary Grant, Michael Caine, Sean Connery, Mick Jagger, Fred Astaire, Errol Flynn, and Douglas Fairbanks Jr.

The brand new Autumn Winter 2014 unveils the dynamic debut collection from Mr Spurr on January 8th at The Dairy, 7A Wakefield Street, London. A considered evolution, re-establishing British heritage whilst showcasing a bold new aesthetic; modernizing the full lifestyle wardrobe of the Kent and Curwen man.

Inspired by British naval dress uniform, double faced, Melton Peacoats are cut close to the body and trimmed with lion head crested metal buttons and leather epaulettes. Rich wool cashmere blended officer's coats are luxuriously trimmed with rabbit fur at the lapel.

The brand's new philosophy begins with the reinterpretation and juxtaposition of iconic pieces: Motorcycle jackets, channel quilted at the lapel, are paired with tuxedo trousers and set again exploded fair isle jumpers, whilst duffle coats are updated with aran sleeves, and reversible cricket knits are offered in a range of brilliant colours.

As part of the collection’s re-branding, the cricket 'Splice', a powerful, angular shard inspired by the V-shaped detailing on a cricket bat, is referenced throughout the collection and has become a prominent mark of the Kent&Curwen brand.
