Seasonal fall and winter collection & look book by Drakes London is once again full of inspiring pieces and combinations showcasing quality craftsmanship, elegant style and company's commitment to an excellence.
Drakes London fw ´15The selection combines more refined classic clothing with casual elements and ranges from blue wool blazers and flannel slacks to lambswool cardigans, crewneck sweaters and denim popovers. And snuff suede chukka boots and penny loafers successfully complement the collection. A lot of attention has been given to varying textures and the color scheme features subdued shades from dark blue to shades of brown and olive green. In general the selection - as Drake's usually does - combines best part of Italian, American and British styles.
Dark blue wool blazer and flannel slacks – it is a classic.
Checked sport coat, gray flannel trousers and button-down shirt unbuttoned. Adding some contrast color such as forest green or purple can bring that little extra to your ensemble but it also takes quite a lot to pull off those purple socks. Or then just go for the casual gray knitwear.
Brown sport coat made of a bit thicker wool fabric is a good choice for seasonal combining.
Going casual with that mao-collar and wool beanie
Combining different textures with personal take is one of the strengths of Drake’s. Also take note how to use a colorful cardigan as a contrasting layer in otherwise quite restrained ensemble.
Militaty green is one the best options for cooler fall days. And it seems that bandana scarves are making a comeback.
Peacoat does not necessarily have to be dark blue or black. Go for olive if you are looking for something different and personal, yet elegant and restrained.
It does not really take that much to look good and to be elegant. Just remember to keep it simple.
One of the best features of Drake's London look books in general is the way how the focus to the garments and combinations and how they showcases the characteristic style of the company. And those same elements are once again recognizable with this look book as well.
