Oliver Spencer Men’s SS2020

 

Oliver Spencer’s spring 2020 collection was inspired by the vibrant atmosphere of Hong Kong’s famous night markets..

The collection pays hommage to Wong Kar-Wei’s “In the Mood for Love,”  aesthetically rich film set in 1962.

Burnt orange and the varying shades of green that Wong employed in the film combined with Spencer’s signature muted blues and grays to great effect. Modern tailoring is integral in this collection. Striking colours including a cerulean blazer teamed with an air force blue shirt, collar worn over the jacket’s lapels.

Belted safari jackets with ankle-flashing cuffed trousers, both in linen, the first look in a fresh ecru, the last in a sumptuous teal.

ICEBERG SS20 – LFWM COLLECTION

ICEBERG since 1974 @Lfwm19 #ICEBERG1974

‘Going underground, going underground. Well, let the boys all sing and let the boys all shout for tomorrow.’

 

At the truman buildings on day 2 #lfwm. There is an air of positive rebellion at ICEBERG for SS20 where youth tribes and cuultures meet and combine in hyoer colour and monochrome. Where, in the imagination of James Long, the Punks of Kings Road hang out with the Sloanes and Hoorays of Knitghtsbridge and South Kensington Goths.

Kicking off with ICEBERG x PETER BLAKE who’s instantly recognisable riot of pop-art graphics cover shirt and trouser full looks, mini dresses and easy knits. His seminal Babe Rainbow and Amerika artworks(a technically intricate sweater of bird’s -eye intarsia, jacquard and embroidery) , hearts, rainbows and Mod target unify across clothes and accessories and are reflected in see -now-buy-now ICEBERG X Linda Farrow shades.

Colour blocked fluid maxi looks in satin, chiffon and crepes for her and Cupro wash -effect silk joggers and matching bomber in a soft turquoise for him. Name belts, vibram sole trainers, trouser legs, necks and ears are adorned and drip with chains: Le Goth Sportif

The high shine of a Mod ‘tonic’ suit morphs into silver zip jackets, Bermuda shorts, and bungee tied trousers. A tee shirt is bound tightly with the same intergral ropes. For the ICEBERG woman Tonal Punky Flower orchids climb over chic tailoring into fluro primaries on white. Worn with crisp shirts and a matching tie sheis the Mod in modern.

”Its Paris, Washington, and a touch of day- dream allure” – Paul Costelloe

Monday morning at the glamourous @WaldorfAstoriaHotel, Aldwych. What a way to kickstart your monday!

A packed house in the stunning ballroom humming along to classic french tunes.. Beautiful tailored flounce coats, in silk jacquard, summer weight wool and appliqued cotton. Soft pastel dresses and jumpsuits, including an exclusive chequerboard print designed by William Costelloe – iconic print for this season. Long statement dresses in 100% pure Irish linen, with pleated panel yolks and tulle underskirts bring an abundance of romance to this poetic collection. ”Tres sexy” Kim West latex underpinnings add a provocative feel to an otherwise ultra-soft look in conjunction with Sarah Angolds architectural statement jewellery.

The Paul Costelloe London signature tailoring for menswear is highlighted is highlighted in sharp, two piece suits in light summer weight wools and heritage Irish linens, created in family -run Berwin & Berwin of Leeds and complemented by hand-crafted shoes from Loake Shoemakers of Northhamptonshire.

Paul’s handbag collection builds on its growing following with a new generation of Paul Costelloe admirers. Oversized totes and mini Jessica bags are inspired by structural details of the apparel collection.

‘In the words of Oscar Wilde, ‘I have the simplest of tastes, i am always satisfied with the best”- Paul Costelloe
