BBG Loves: John Smedley AW19 'In The Mood For Love'

28 August 2019

Words Nicky Gray

Are you in the mood for love?

Inspired by Wong Kar-Wai's award-winning romantic drama In The Mood For Love, John Smedley's new AW19 collection with the same name narrates a story of love, loneliness, desire and yearning. The dramatic colour palettes and patterns portray the twists and turns of the film's love story, as new love blooms and old love withers.

Vibrant reds and oranges are juxtaposed against melancholic greys, deep-sea blues, and fields of violet. Intricate jacquard detailing appears in both the menswear and womenswear collections. New silhouettes have also been added. In particular, look out for double-breasted jackets and sleek bomber jackets which are focal points of the new AW19 collection.

It's fair to say that the John Smedley design team have drawn inspiration from one masterpiece and created their own. If you happen to be in the mood for love, then stay tuned as the new John Smedley AW19 collection will hit shelves imminently.
