LC: M Turnbull & Asser SS17

By Rashpal Amrit Monday 4th Jul, 2016

For Spring Summer Turnbull & Asser returns to Monte Carlo, inspired by the Grand prix victors of the day. The collection is an homage to the more audacious side of the motor racing world referencing Grand Prix’s loveable rouges and daredevil drivers.

The collection explores the juxtaposition between the hard graphic lines of sport and the soft ambience of summer. Warm orange tones mixed with washed out shades of ochre, copper and pale pistachio. Lilac and sky blue complement soft grey and sand effectively. Both colour combinations are bought to life through patterns in the brands shirting.

Traditional Turnbull & Asser ‘power stripes’ are given a gentler finish with beach like backgrounds. While modern Diamond Standard Cloth, traditionally for warmer climates are presented in neat micro-grid checks which are blurred to imply a sense of movement.

Leading the tailoring separates are unlined double-breasted four patch pocket jackets and statement horizontal stripe blazers in ultra-light wool and active stretch cotton, perfect for the summer months.

Completing the collection, an exclusive collaboration with motorcycle helmet manufacturer Davida, 70s-inspired custom crash helmets featuring unique decorative bubble visors.
