Tailoring label E Tautz presented its grey heavy AW15 collection during London Collections: Men.
Looks embraced voluminosity, oversized looks with wide-legged trousers, overcoats exaggerated wide lapels, double-breasted suits all in a palette of greys, greens and blacks. While most tailoring brands concentrate on fit E Tautz has taken on board the trend for oversized, with more relaxed silhouettes and flowing draped fabric much like Acne Studio’s previous collections but in a more elegant and tailored form. Looks suited towards the more taller man, which those vertically challenged might find harder to pull off.
AW15’s real highlights are its outerwear looks, with beautiful and minimal overcoats and jackets, a grey pea coat being a particular stand out.
The brand partnered with grooming brand Braun for the show.
E. Tautz Creative Director, Patrick Grant, on the partnership…
‘The Tautz AW15 collection was inspired by ‘Terry Street’, a ground-breaking 1967 series of poems by Douglas Dunn. Terry Street in Hull in the 1960’s, studying as a mature student and working under Larkin and the collection chronicles the comings and goings of the ordinary people of this tough northern town. Braun’s heritage of design and functionality for the everyday man complement the ethos of this year’s collection so I am delighted that they are sponsoring my show again.’
Braun Creative Director, Fabio Vivan, adds…
‘Male grooming has developed into so much more than simply removing hair; it’s a means of expressing your overall style and identity. Braun’s grooming products are the perfect tools for every man to achieve their desired image.’
Hair for the show was created by TONI&GUY
