LCM: Richard James AW14

6 March 2019

The weather made a turn for the best yesterday as we took our seats at the Park Lane venue for Richard James AW14. The sun was of most importance as it shown through the full length windows that surrounded the room, reflecting off the sharp designs that Richard James has presented us with this season.

"Our Autumn/Winter'14 collection salutes the New Edwardians and the daw of the dandy, the sharp-edged, highly stylised, '50s explosion of self expression that shocked a nation and unleashed the brave, unbridled new world of British street style."

Reaching into the history of Savile Row, Richard James recreates the look of the 50's era which transformed the world of British tailoring. It announced a new sense of pride, and a little bit of edge, while the British heritage remains imminent amongst the clothes.

Soft tartan and subtle prints filled the catwalk, paired with patent leather shoes and slick back hair. The Savile Row designer presented a collection made up of cigarette trousers, skinny ties and printed shirts - a modern, youthful take on the tailored suit. A couple of shiny suits also came into play, and we're pleased to see Richard James having a bit of fun with the collection. Dark tones dominated the catwalk, yet subtle printed accessories added a little bit of spark to each look - we cant help but enjoy a gentleman with a playful side!

We managed to spot aussie boy James Gatenby at FM Models on the catwalk, along with Alex Dunston at Select and Charlie Timms at Premier who we managed to grab for a quick chat after the show.
