A Fifties-style café — with models sat at booths — set a nostalgic tone for Several’s presentation that took its cue from a fusion of British working class life and American culture.
References came from many sources, including photographs from Paul Graham’s book “A1: The Great North Road,” — a main highway that connects London to Scotland — Fifties American jazz, roadside cafés and coffee shops.
The result was melting pot of dapper workwear pieces, including a green trenchcoat worn with a shirt in a muted apricot tone, khaki trousers, and brown and cream argyle socks. Looks included a short, unlined jacket in forest green, a soft cotton drill jacket, a buttoned painter’s one.
Fidler experimented with rubberized cotton canvas on a Fifties-style milkman jacket, done in muted orange and paired with a white shirt and trousers tucked into ankle boots. He also played with shorter trousers: He took the brand’s best-selling, slightly tapered chino and hemmed them so that they skimmed the ankle.
Vintage footwear was sourced from Fidler’s friends, and included American and British boots made in horsehide pebble grain or waxed suede.
