Nick Hart’s studio is near Golborne Road in northwest London, which has a strong Moroccan and Middle Eastern community. “I was seeing these Moroccan dudes mixing old-school tailoring with traditional tunics and kaftans,” said Hart. “It’s a little bit ‘jazz dandy,’ a little bit Hamid Karzai.”

Those inspirations made for an interesting collection. The opening look featured a stone-colored dinner jacket worn over a calf-skimming tunic in a similar hue with a white panel at the neck. Hart played with length, in the form of shirts that hung long below jackets, and with three-quarter length jackets in linen that had a colonial feel. The collection had its pops of color, too: Hart paired a candy pink blazer with baby pink trousers and a blue wing-collar shirt with tuxedo pleats, giving the collection a dandyish slant.
