Initial reaction:

Suiting for the kids. Closing Monday on a high note, the father and son duo sent out their hybrid pieces to a Led Zeppelin-heavy soundtrack, effortlessly weaving between the formal world of proper tailoring and a young, punk sportswear vocabulary. It was a pretty perfect merging of London’s two major menswear forces – Savile Row and the new guard – inspired, as the designers explained to Dazed before the show, by the Art Intervention movement and ‘interventionism’: the idea of art that “builds on and subverts existing forms”.

Pinstripes:

For SS15, London is putting its money on pinstripes. Here, they were black and white and courtesy of British mill Holland & Sherry, used on roomy outerwear inspired by actor and musician Jimmy Nail’s 6'3" frame and on baseball caps with leather accents by Stephen Jones, or emulated as stitches on a sweatshirt.

Viral moment:

Elongated bomber jackets that billowed behind the models as they walked down the runway. Calf-length MA1 flight jackets FTW.  

The soundtrack to Casely-Hayford SS15:

Last season took a more streetwear turn, but retained the duo's focus on the arts – loose American football jerseys referencing the spartan lines of De Stijl architecture and painting. See it below:
