The new season takes inspiration from the romance and refuge of the British coast and countryside, uniting city-dwellers with the urgency for rural escape. It extracts inspiration from local architecture, industry and environment – exploring built and natural elements we Brits have cultivated on our island nation: from royal retreats to the homespun craft of village industry.

Frederik Willems, Head of Design at Thomas Pink, says; “The collection takes us on a sartorial journey around the UK, visiting some our best-loved coastal towns – from Brighton with its resplendent Royal Pavilion, to Padstow and the Isle of Skye with their rugged coastlines.”

Colour plays a hugely prominent role in Thomas Pink’s Autumn/Winter 16 collection, and to highlight the five key hues of the season – cranberry, navy blue, forest green, mustard and turquoise – the modern British shirt maker showcased looks against impactful block colour screens in corresponding colours.

Florence Torrens, Creative Director at Thomas Pink, says; “The inspiration for this season’s show comes from architect Luis Barragan. Block colour in different planes was a feature of many of his buildings and designs and offered an interesting solution to displaying the collection against the highpoints of colour which run through the season.”
