Inspired by pared-back modern day menswear, for AW17 Oliver Spencer has created a collection with a Velvethead twist, referencing the cultural roots of music and fashion.
The tough colour palette of autumnal, burnt orange and forest green is enhanced with contrasting tones of powder blue, blush pink and grey. Blackwatch Plaid and clean wide horizontal zig-zag stripes play a role. They are softened by deconstructed and washed fabrics including soft velvet, corduroy and wool with contrasting leather.
Spencer’s signature cropped trousers are seen throughout, paired alongside new long-line jackets, roll neck jumpers and stacked sole plimsolls. Oversized parka coats are introduced to the collection with a versatile ergonomic design, transforming from coat to rucksack for the wearer. Key pieces include: Soft leather bombers with contrasting shearling, oversized parka coats and powder blue polo necks.
