London Collections: Men: Hentsch Man SS14

At the Baartmans and Siegel (BAS) presentation, they attempted to turn a space on Earlham Street into a tropical rainforest. BAS’s SS14 collection, sildenafil entitled South Pacific Aviation, centres around ‘a man who is on a journey of exploration and hedonism, leading him to a land of exotic escapism’. The idea of escapism is reinforced with badges of palm trees sown onto items.

For SS14, BAS have used warm shades of brown and beige, as well as navy and black, which has appeared in other collections and one of the emerging main trends of Spring/Summer 2014. With strong block colours and hints of military uniform, this collection is unapologetically masculine, without being intimidating.

The collection also features classics such as the Parka coat, which has been re-engineered for the summer season. This is part of BAS’s ‘DNA’, what they feel should be part of any man’s wardrobe. The list also includes a Harrington jacket, Field jacket, and a Lounge Trench.

Baartmans and Siegel’s SS14 collection is wearable and fitting for the changeable weather we suffer from in this country. It also has a cool aesthetic that will no doubt be on trend.

The Old Sorting Office was filled to the rafters in anticipation of Christopher Shannon’s SS14 collection, with the front row including David Gandy and Louis Smith. Shannon is known for using street wear looks and interpreting them into luxe sportswear, and this SS14 collection was no different. The collection takes inspiration from ‘the birth of the super club scene and the eclectic, vibrant aesthetic that accompanied it’. In particular, Shannon’s SS14 collection drew from clubs such as Cream, Garlands and Paradise, some of which are in Shannon’s hometown of Liverpool.

It was a mix of vibrant, fluorescent colours, monochrome looks, and intricate patterns. Block coloured vest tops were paired with sagger shorts with flower detailing, creating an interesting contrast. PVC was a main trend, seen on shorts and tops, often overlayed with translucent rubber fabric.

As well as using bright block colours, Christopher Shannon’s SS14 also featured monochrome swirly prints, which at first glance, looked like zebra prints. This too, was inspired by the club scene, specifically from the logos and typefaces of the flyers.

This Season’s HentschMan is all about bearded rockstars, all over printed shirts and those warm Mexican Nights. PAUSE has one word for next season’s Hentsch Man “welcome”. The atmosphere at the SS14 presentation was exactly how designer Alexia Hentsch had intended; based on a trip to Baja California spectators were treated to a day with Mr. Cool! (think Johnny Depp in Once Upon a Time in Mexico’ with alot more style!)

From monochrome striped pants to printed co-ords, as well as the pale pink suits, everything about this presentation embodied effortless chic. The long-haired bearded models adorned pieces that every man could wear such as the burgundy pinstriped shirt, and others were left for the more confident man, such as the en-trend Africanesque Print Trousers. Stated but never overdone the pieces were playful but still incorporated linear cuts that never failed to provide a fine and polished, yet causal finish. Complimented with long-lined socks and cowboy boots the focus point was definitely on Hentsch’s attention to detail, design and styling.

The marriage of the scenery and atmosphere is really what drove this line home, guests took pictures, a Desperados and even had a light conversations with the bearded models. Hentsch succeeded in not only creating an impeccable and kudos-worthy line, but also creating a general pleasant experience.

Passports at the ready, and we know whose clothes we’ll be packing.
