In three weeks it’s on again as the Pitti Uomo 86 starts on the 16th of June. However I realized there’s still few F/W-collections presented in January I haven’t covered here. And as the short summer we got here last week seems to be gone again it’s a good time to take a look at the last F/W-presentations before starting to wait for the S/S ´15 that will be introduced when it’s time to hit Florence again.
Eton of Sweden fall ´14 preview
Once again Eton collection gave a full glimpse of what’s coming covering their ranges from the “Green Ribbon” which combines casual fabrics, garment washing and innovative details to “Red Ribbon” that’s made to refine and reinvent the modern business shirt and finally the most luxorius “DnA collection” that’s produced exclusively where the Eton story began in the first place, in the Swedish village of GÃ¥nghester.
One of the things i like the most in terms of Eton is the versatility. Some of the designs can fairly be said to be “over the top” but on the other hand there are subtle pieces made from rich oxford and Eton’s “signature” soft-touch flanella fabrics that keeps the collection in balance. As they say by themselves, the collection is made for the men who does not necessarily need to wear a suit and shirt but still enjoy being able to do that. This is shown in many pieces which are as well compatible to wear as well with your suit and sport coat but that will work just as well when combined with a pair of jeans.
The collection included now for the second time in a row very nice implementation of tab- and bar-collars that are not seen very often. Someone might consider the bar-collar to be a bit snobbish and dandy-like but these are definitely something that can bring a fresh variation to your shirt-rotation.
How about thedetails? The shirt is part of the collaboration made together by Eton creative director Sebastian Dollinger and English painter John Clark for fall and winter 2014. In addition to shirts this collection will feature a series of six accessories consisting of two scarves, two ties and two pocket squares all made and woven in Italy.
The cut-away (but still soft) collar made to be worn with your suits and sport coats.
Orange for the win - green ribbon casual shirting.
Something a bit more daring - regular part of Eton collections. Flower prints are not just for summer wear.
And as always the collection included also a full range of accessories featuring ties, pocket squares and bracelets. Here are some of pieces that got my attention.
This one would be perfect to match you light blue button-up and navy blue soft tailored suit.
Eton x Mackmyra Whisky
Finally, Eton always manages something new, innovative and fun to their booth. This time they had decided to combine their forces with Swedish whisky company Mackmyra which made the stay at the booth even more homey and comfortable..
Also worth of mentioning that Eton definitely holds the best party of the week, so looking forward what they will come up this time..
