In homage to British theatre’s Olivier Awards, of which it is a long-term supporter, Chester Barrie staged its fall presentation at the Waldorf Hotel, complete with a red carpet and waiters proffering Champagne.

The focus was eveningwear, including a theatrical smoking jacket in green velvet with an overblown shawl collar, and evening suits in French blue or claret with showy velvet or Ottoman lapels.

Business tailoring included a suit of grey West of England flannel while a Prince of Wales sports jacket in baby camel hair formed part of the label’s more casual offering.
