DAKS breaks the rules with the men’s collection Spring/Summer 2015
Filippo Scuffi works in DAKS since 2005, following a path that led him to become creative director of both lines, man and woman.
Now it’s the right time for a wave of modernity in the british fashion house, in order to express a new style, which is inspired by the deconstructivism.
“De-construct that is constructed”: an idea that Scuffi had long since and that the brand has allowed him to realize, he said during the interview to our team ModeyesTV.
Starting from the fashion show’s planning, it has been designed a new collection for spring / summer 2015.
Everything has a seemingly anarchic mood, an “in praise of mistake”, an imbalance designed, precise and conscious, which finds a new equilibrium.
A revolution that leads to create new rules for color and fabric combinations, and identify a different style, made for a cosmopolitan society like the one in London, but without forgetting the classic elegance DAKS.
The knitwear fully symbolizes the inspiration mood, proposing signs and colors of the deconstructivist paintings.
The garments’ colors are unusual and seemingly unlikely, including the dusty pink and navy blue.
The fabrics are altered and modernized, using mainly cotton and silk, mixed with high quality leather and satin plastic fibers.
Of course there are double-breasted jackets, that have always represented the classic English elegance, renewed by a lateral closure, with a double-D buckle, the new image is representative of the brand.
Expressly there aren’t many accessories, because they wanted to give more attention to the clothes, except for some deer leather handbags and sneakers, made in same fabrics and colors of the garments.
The latter, sporty and irreverent, they are the most contrasting element of the collection, while remaining always in perfect harmony with the leathers and fabrics used.
