Dress­ing cor­rectly for for­mal oc­ca­sions mat­ters to the Sav­ile Row la­bel, which de­scribes its new col­lec­tion as “an unashamedly mas­cu­line and ur­ban in­ter­pre­ta­tion of a Bri­tish gen­tle­man’s wardrobe.” Coats with a mil­i­tary in­flu­ence were a high­light, with a va­ri­ety of sil­hou­ettes, in­clud­ing a mag­nif­i­cent ad­mi­ral’s cloak, a belted great­coat, a leather bomber and a grey fly­ing jacket worn with army boots. The pal­ette added to the mas­culin­ity, with olive, rac­ing and khaki greens, and navy and air force blues. The for­mal­ity of the sig­na­ture evening­wear was light­ened with fun touches such as pea­cock feather mo­tifs on a waist­coat, mono­grammed slip­pers and a metal­lic tuxedo jacket. Flan­nel shirts also made an ap­pear­ance. Eyewear was preva­lent and cuff­links were a key ac­ces­sory; the house has col­lab­o­rated for the first time with Mex­i­can sil­ver­smith Tane. Downton Abbey, eat your heart out.
