Thomas Pink, the leading Jermyn Street shirt maker, unveiled its London inspired Autumn/Winter 15 Collection at the Institute of Contemporary Arts, as part of London Collections: Men. Included in this season’s model line-up was former Scottish international rugby union player , Thom Evans.
Presented against the backdrop of a 30ft ‘long bar’ constructed entirely out of paper, each model bartender and punter showcased a different ‘Pink’ look. Built using crisp white 315gsm Kendal Manilla paper manufactured by James Cropper, the unique setup provided the perfect blank canvas for the brand’s expanding ready to wear offering.
“Autumn/Winter 15 is inspired by a heady mix of London’s well known landmarks, motifs and characters. From Sir Michael Caine in the 1971 film ‘Get Carter’, to The Coach and Horses pub in Soho, we’ve drawn upon urban influences to create a collection which is daringly bold and eclectic in style……” -Frederik Willems, Head of Design at Thomas Pink.
Key stories in the shirting range include ‘The Davenport’, a self puppytoothand the ‘The Gibson’, a fine satin twill. This season’s hero piece is the Italian weave ‘Caldicot’ in indigo – a washed Chambray shirt in 80s two fold cotton which stylishly blurs the boundaries between formal and casual.
Guests enjoyed cocktails mixed by Pontoon, made using Hennessy Fine de Cognac and garnished with paper foxes, whilst listening to British classics from The Clash, The Rolling Stones and Pulp. Continuing the iconic London theme, models wore Dr. Martens tasselled loafers.
