Known for his lively and upbeat shows, this was in no doubt one of the most entertaining catwalks of the weekend. With music from the Turbans, Oliver Spencer showed he is still the master of the bridge between popular streetwear and traditional tailoring.
Sculptor David Nash was an influence in this season’s collection with two colours proving to be a recurring theme grey and blue. Not just here but in other catwalk shows, these are definitely proving to be the colours of autumn/winter this year. Oliver Spencer is known for the use of quality fabrics, modern fits and old school construction; this certainly did not disappoint.
Some highlights of the show were the marl, single breasted suits, the trousers cropped at the ankle to reveal the black trainers. Showing a mix of traditional tailoring styled for the modern day man. Chunky, high neck knits also made numerous appearances in dark plum. Olive green and bright red Bomber jackets were styled with ankle length oversized trousers. These styles are the just what is needed to spice up the autumn/winter.
Oliver Spencer’s design prove to be classically British without being stuffy, eclectic but still cohesive. Impressive for a man who is self taught and the fact the brand has only been around since 2002.
