London’s docks in the Thirties — exotic cargo piled against a backdrop of corroded, rusty metal and fraying rope — inspired the colors for this luscious collection of tailored clothing and knitwear by Toby Lamb, the Savile Row tailor’s design and brand director.
There were check suits in shades of cinnamon or watery teal, and corduroy ones in pale gray — the color of a winter London sky — or dark aqua. Trousers were slim, with a narrow cuff — increasingly rare in a city that’s falling in love with an almost comically wide leg.
Outerwear came in the form of a short, plaid double-breasted jacket, or a navy blue one with a shawl collar. Longer coats with wide lapels had a military feel.
Chunky ribbed and cable sweaters and scarves came in searing shades of burnt orange or teal, while one fine-gauge knit was covered with blocks of orange, navy and white, the colors melting delicately into one another at the edges.
