When I think of the classic Englishman dressed in impeccably tailored, classic shapes in neutral colors I think of Oliver Spencer. For this Autumn, Oliver delivers on giving sophisticated, modern options for the busy man. From clothing to accessories, he thought of all the circumstances of a what a busy male would need with bags, umbrellas, glasses and more. For this upcoming season, he has envisioned men wearing black and grey outfits that either are solid or patterned with touches of autumnal burnt oranges and rusty reds.
Gone are the zealously styled clothes of paisley prints, mutli-coloured ensembles and overly patterned clothes. Thick jackets that came in a variety of lengths had no extra fuss with practical pockets in substantial materials. Oliver describes this collection as having a “Velvethead” twist, alluding to the cultural roots of music and fashion. He did take a break from his structured silhouette, by scattering touches of relaxed trousers with a touch of pattern-work.
One of his unique stylistic touches that were throughout his collection was the cropped leg, giving everything a touch of youthful, casualness no matter how luxurious the fabric that was chosen. One of the special things about Oliver’s shows is his desire to give back to the community and he partnered up with Vero’s ‘Buy Now’ platform and created umbrellas that he will be giving 100% of the profits to a charity called SHINE, which supports young people who are diagnosed with cancer.
Very rare to see any brand give 100% of a products’ proceeds to a charitable cause, making Oliver Spencer a brand not only one can wear with pride to look stylish and well equipped for any occasion, but also a brand that one can know that is contributing to a worthy cause.
