Two seasons in, Bespoken, the young brand which designs and produces all its clothing in England have delivered a collection with a story, a 1960s flavour. S/S 09 plays with tight white chinos that wouldn’t look out of place in the film ‘Blow up’ offset by a blue double breasted rain peacoat. The feeling is of luxury and understated quality; sharp fitting blazers reminiscent of the Italian inspired modernist era, tight leaner lapels and crisp shirting with round collars. Other favourites include a black & white check shirt with tab collar.
Under the tutelage of Turnbull & Asser, Bespoken was born not to make made-to-measured clothes tailored to the individual but to honour the heritage of tailoring traditions, paying great attention to fabrics, details and applying those traditions to a modern fit and contemporary styling.
Harrods the only UK stockists have taken 34 pieces from the collection.
