The father-and-son team of Joe and Charlie Casely-Hayford looked to music — specifically grime and Seventies rock — for this collection that was packed with tailored clothing that was embellished, patterned or adorned with statement jewelry inspired by traditional Moroccan and Palestinian dress.
There were shiny silk paisley suits — some in green, others in dusty pink — and tailored pieces that flashed with bits of colored embroidery or other types of adornment.
A navy blue coat had colored horizontal stripes embroidered on the sleeves, while a slim ruffle spilled down the front leg of a pair of trousers. A neat rust-colored suit worn with pool slides and a colored fringed collar necklace looked fit for a city street in the tropics.
Abstract cloud and paintbrushlike prints (inspired by the artist and musician Faris Badwan, whose work was featured on the show’s invitation) appeared across long coats and suits and even an anorak.
The Casely-Hayfords worked a similar aesthetic into their debut women’s wear collection, which will be made-to-measure or bespoke only by appointment in London.
Standout pieces included a multicolored knit top with a teardrop slash at the front, a pink paisley suit and an oversized coat with a black and blue paintbrush pattern.
