The opening looks saw grey and black check layered one on top of the other in dizzying pairings: check coats, with check trousers, check shirts and check ties – even check socks.
The fine lines of Prince of Wales check – though still layered to the max – broke up the solid check of before. Leather trousers were a naughty touch under suits.
Soft wool sweaters in black and white stripes were worn under black wool coats, while modernist, block pattern ties felt graphic under stark black suits.
How they wore it:
With thick-soled lace up Derby shoes, check bowling bags and check fedoras. Bright blue down jackets were layered on top of the other, which worn with narrow, tailored trousers, created unusual proportions. Fox fur lined parkas, and techy fabric surfaces felt luxe, while a midnight blue astrakhan coat stood out amidst the print. Scarves were wrapped and twisted tightly round the neck.
