London, UK – It is on a cold day in London where men’s fashion house Tiger of Sweden presented their new collection. The outing is replete with the codes that define an easy wear affair for today’s gentlemen who appreciate style without being overdone.
The silhouettes are dominated by largely cut, and loose trousers. They’ve been paired together with well-tailored jackets. This latter enjoys a wide diversity in the cut of the lapels, which ranges from extremely slim to large and wide. The looks are nearly all capped off with micro-sized ribbon ties. They are only absent in the collection when we find crew cut collars and roll up necks as collars.
Thick rubber bottom soles complete the rugged shoes that accompany each silhouette. Though many of the looks are monotone, a great deal of them have prints woven into the fabrics of the shirts, pants, blazers and outer coats. They are all created on textures of knits, wool, silk, shearling, woven material, leather and velvet. They form one of the most natural palettes of textures.
Though no one will accuse Tiger of Sweden of having brought true innovation into menswear this season, all the same the house has managed to put together an appealing opus of masculinity. And the work in it offers a very real range of choices for a wide variety of styles, tastes and ages.
