“It’s all about the English gentry, whether they’re at work, off duty, or at play,” said Duchamp design director Gianni Colarossi. For daytime, Colarossi dressed his man in a one-button notch-collar blazer, a five-button waistcoat, and narrow trousers — all in butter-soft denim blue summer flannel — worn with a “Gatsby” style striped shirt with a curved white collar.

Things got snazzier for the evening, with a royal blue diamond weave silk dinner jacket that had a black silk shawl collar, and a basket weave-printed dinner jacket, which was flamboyantly worn with a contrasting paisley shirt and wool-mohair trousers. For a brand known for its enthusiastic use of color, the tight palette and expert tailoring of this collection showed considerable restraint.
