For the second season of London Collections: Men, Oliver Spencer showcased his Fall/Winter 2013 collection, inspired by the influential 20th century German art theorist, Joseph Beuys, motivated by his association with the 1960’s Fluxus movement. The fabrications for bold suiting and outerwear nod towards Beuys’ significant ‘Felt Suit;’ reference his use of wool and felt, drawing inspiration from the outside world. Architectural lines influence traditional tailoring creating a modern fit for the season. French Blue provides structure to the colour palette, punctuated with highlights of Forest Green, Mustard and Burgundy. Much of the collection is made in the UK, many garments in London.
Footwear themes include capped-toe Oxford Boot and classic shoes you can kick in; offered in traditional colour-ways, updated in an electric vibrant blue. Models walked to a soundtrack of A Flock of Seagulls, White Rabbit, Talking Heads and Ian Dury. Rick Edwards made a star turn on the Catwalk along with Men´s Health Fashion Director, Dan Rookwood.
Celebrities in the audience included Tinie Tempah, David Gandy, Libertine Carl Barat and Olympic swimmer Mark Foster.
