Fashion Film: Vinti Andrews AW13

By July 31, 2013Fashion News

The want for a girlfriend during early secondary school years is often great; on acquiring one, life is rarely as sweet as thought to be. Teenage prayers for facial hair in many a case are met with patchy strands of hair only visible in areas of good lighting. After much time spent on public transport, car purchases seem all too sensible. Owning one however, has the potential to reinvent one’s understanding of the daily mealtime phenomenon, reducing it from a three-times-daily activity down to a single, sizeable meal at around 4pm–and so the list goes on. Ultimately, there’s something rather attractive about that of which you’re not yet ready for, for instance- adulthood. The likelihood is at some stage you’ve been on the receiving end of a lecture by some grey hair owner warning against the perils of growing up too fast. We do hope you took heed of the message; the last thing you need is to enter the world of work with blazer pockets filled with regret– take for a instance, an under prepared graduation outfit!

For those who have given their parents a first class reason to brag to the family (even that aunt they don’t particularly care for), have an extra button, or five – you’ve earned it. This double-breasted  blazer screams “I don’t know where the local clubs are, but I can point you to the library” – It’s formal, fit for the occasion and easily worn. The cherry G. H. Bass loafers and green knitted tie provide a much-needed dose of colour to the outfit.

Graduation 1

| Blazer: Zara | Trousers: Topman | Tie: Charvet | Pocket Square: Viyella| Loafers: G. H. Bass

A two-buttoned piece is more apt for the (statistically) average student. This blue suit by Asos is perfect for the big day and will be welcomed for many days to come by your working wardrobe. We’ve chosen to team it up with a slim chocolate knit tie, champagne pocket square and brown monk shoes.

Graduation 2

 

| Suit: Asos | Tie: T. M. Lewin | Pocket Square: Moss | Tie Clip: Foundwell | Monk Shoes: John Lobb |

 Graduating with a third? Why stop your three-year-long course of rebellion here. There’s no written rule that states an obligation to wear smart trousers to a formal event, so why not opt for a spot of denim. We’ve teamed these Topman jeans with a navy blazer, burgundy tie and suede monk shoes. It’s the ideal balance between work and play that you’ve been lacking for at least three years now – the perfect smart-casual affair.

Graduation 3

 

| Blazer: Topman | Jeans: Topman | Tie: Burton | Pocket Square: DRAKE’S | Tie Clip: Asos | Monk Shoes: John Lobb |

Vinti Andrews’ AW13 collection is showcased in a short fashion film. Beautifully captured, and set on what seems like an abandoned estate, the collection and the setting combine wonderfully.

The protagonist, although alone, does not appear to be lonely. In the film, a sense of individuality and defiance is evoked throughout. This tone is highlighted thorough the clothing. With references to nineties streetwear, the collection manages to include and mix hip hop and indie styles, without them being overpowering.

The outerwear features long black letterman coats, with leather sleeves. Interestingly, parka style jackets with baseball jacket sleeves. This contrast is unusual but works perfectly with the added camo print body. Plaid is also a big feature of the collection, used mainly in black and white, and paired with light blue denim, another feature of the nineties.

Vinti Andrews’ AW13 collection is a set of strong looks, and has the breadth to appeal to both Tinie Tempah and the Arctic Monkeys. This collection is for people who like to keep their fashion simple and strong.

The collection is out on the 5th August.
