Western Suburbs Weekly - - Fashion - Des­mond Eddy

PARKER & Co. has been a Perth fash­ion des­ti­na­tion since 1895, main­tain­ing a net­work of stores in Perth and Clare­mont.

Each year, own­ers Vic­tor and Deb­o­rah Tana travel to Mi­lan, Florence and Lon­don to source the finest qual­ity in lux­ury men’s ap­parel.

Euro­pean de­sign­ers stock ranges from Ermenegildo Zegna, Bri­oni, Pal Zi­leri and Ar­mani Collezioni to Ki­ton, Brunello Cucinelli, Paul Smith, TOD’s, Church’s and John Lobb.

Key trends this win­ter in­clude the promi­nence of navy across suit­ing and blazer col­lec­tions.

Fab­rics are light­weight and trans-sea­sonal, pro­vid­ing the de­sired warmth to get through win­ter.

Tailoring fea­tures sil­hou­ettes that are straight and slim.

Win­ter col­lec­tions present a lot of tex­tu­ral pat­terned fab­rics and new cloths such as super-light flan­nels and mi­cro-weave fab­rics.

Silk-blended fab­rics are also prom­i­nent.

Checks are very sub­tle, more tonal, and pin­stripes are also slight in char­ac­ter­is­tic.

Suit colours range from in­tense navy and mid­night blue tones to char­coal and dif­fused blacks.

Ties can in­ject a wardrobe re­fresh with wo­ven jacquard, prom­i­nent stripes and pais­ley back in vogue.

Au­tumn win­ter 2016 col­lec­tions are now avail­able at Parker & Co. Trin­ity Ar­cade and Clare­mont Quar­ter stores.
