The new fall/winter 2014-15 men’s collection by Brooks Brothers has lots of grey in the classic suits, carefully tailored using the brand’s heritage of 196 years’ history. The suits are perfect for board rooms and any high-powered business setting, but the collection offers a great deal more, with outerwear and accessories that can be combined to create the hybrid looks blending formal and casual that are such a feature of fashion style this season. For example, keep the shirt and tie, add a brighter check waistcoat, and finish with a camel greatcoat for a perfect casual chic.
Shirts by Brooks Brothers are products that incorporate a vast amount of design skills, with the brand’s innovations such as button-down collars, slim-fit tailoring, and non-iron fabrics that simplify life for frequent travellers. Colours are perfect for coordination in layered looks, with hues such as loden green, mustard, twilight blue, deep purple and navy that work well together, including combinations with the cool greys of the more formal wear. The brand’s work on materials includes Saxxon wool, exclusive to Brooks Brothers, luxurious and durable, offered in everything from tailored clothing to sweaters.
The camel coat is also a mainstay of the women’s collection, perfect with a chunky warm textured sweater and a tartan scarf in a look that is perfect both in the city and the countryside.
The collection expresses the practical flexibility that is such a feature of the brand, with combinations of tailored outerwear with silk charmeuse blouses, sophisticated print dresses, pencil skirt or trousers, and a range of accessories, all of which can be mixed and matched to suit your preferred style of the moment. This personal creative freedom is made possible by the brand’s wealth of archive material, with a design team now headed by Creative Director Zac Posen.
