A welcome touch of heat and hedonism... Our SS21 Balearic Beginnings collection is now available online and at the Savile Row and Park Avenue stores. And below is the collection's theme, the traditionally overwritten discourse on the inspiration and thinking behind it.
Our SS21 Balearic Beginnings collection opens its eyes wide in wonderment and sashays back to early ‘80s Ibiza and the frolicsome, al fresco world of nascent all-night club culture.
In the ‘70s Spain’s Mediterranean White Island was known as an idyllic, underlyingly innocent bohemian backwater, but by the ‘80s - with the advent of the outdoors, under-the-stars Ku Club and ground-breaking Amnesia - it was fast gaining a reputation as the hotspot for full-scale satiation.
This is a breezy, very easy-wearing and coruscatingly colourful collection that captures the louche, free-thinking and let-loose attitude of the time.
Anchoring base colours of navy, olive and coffee are punctuated by piercing, sun and sea summoning notes of orange, magenta, palm green and cobalt blue.
Slub linens and cotton seersuckers give texture and depth of feel to tailoring, while wool frescos add airiness.
Textured cotton and linen knitwear, boat neck crews and naturally giving cotton jersey tops and oversized bottoms lend solidity and easy movement.
Casualwear is markedly relaxed, featuring wool and cotton jersey hoodies, button-through blousons and light linen shirt jackets.
Cactus, palm, smiling sun and coloured capsule prints instantly evoke heat and hedonism.
