Scandinavian simplicity combined with Italian craftsmanship and tradition

Drake's London F/W 2014 look book


Shot at the streets of Shoreditch in London and in their own factory facilities at No.3 Haberdasher Street, the fall and winter look book of Drake’s London pays tribute to the area's rich heritage in textile production. The look book portrays the spirit of Drake’s by being simple yet effective, understated but still elegant and featuring whole range of casual wear, tailored garments and naturally full set of accessories.

The collection itself features outstanding patterns, textures and colors - all effortlessly combined together in the outfits of the look book. In case one needs guidance on how to match colors and patterns - this set of photos is a good piece to start with. Although, if you wanna stay on the safe side of the road - be careful with those colorful socks.

Picked a few of my personal favorites from the look book.

Peacoat combined with denim and roll neck sweater - all in shades of blue keeps it casual but still classic. Sand colored suede (together with the purple in socks) brings a nice touch of refreshment here.

Nice play here with brown, green, blue and purple. Harmony without clashing.

Lightweight, wool, wool-silk and wool-cashmere scarves with bold prints could be described as a “trademark” of Drake’s. Also definitely one of my favorite pieces of the collection together with the printed and eye-catching pocket squares.

Same jacket worn in two different ways - with a tie the outfit can be played for a casual friday at work. Loose the tie and you’re ready for the weekend.

As seen in the pics above the colorful scarfs and pocket squares are an easy way to sharpen otherwise restrained ensemble.
