London, UK – British fashion house Casely-Hayford has presented a collection for Fall Winter 2016/17 that typifies the current stream in British menswear. It oscillates its offering from streetwear and urban looks to more sophisticated pieces.
Casely-Hayford is certainly not afraid to play with color. As Britons complain about their weather, they often opt for brighter colors in their wardrobe as a way to add some excitement and optimism into their life on gray, dreary and rainy days. Here the house give us a mixture of abstract prints that defies logic for a clear explanation. But there is where the strength lies. The singular print is used in the long coats, the trousers and the blazers. And the house is careful to play them down by always managing to associate one piece with the prints to solid pieces.
Life has to be about ease and comfort as well as style. And for those moment Casely-Hayford gives us options in denim. It along with the long jersey tops are nearly indispensable in the wardrobe of the modern Brit ! And as far as the other shapes are concerned, one will not feel too confined or feel confinement at all. The long coats are roomy. And the blazers are boxy and roomy, though shorter cropped.
