AllSaints presents the Autumn 2015 Menswear Collection exploring the ever-changing fabric of AllSaints’ London neighborhood as the brand enters its 21st year. The arrival of new silhouettes evoke East London’s increasingly towering skyline, where slick skyscrapers replace crumbling brick factories. Presented during London Fashion Week, the resulting collection becomes a uniform without uniformity.
Formality is softened by moments of playful felinity. Military knits exist alongside silk M65 jackets adorned with floral patters, and core masculine codes are redefined with a fitted, modern shape. Outerwear incorporates sculpted British tweed and Animal prints take the form of camouflage.
The AllSaints biker has been extended with paneled shearling and trimmed with bridle leather: one piece is oversize with severed sleeves; another is shrunken and belted.
This continual process of destruction, reinvention and collage mirrors the constantly evolving Was London landscape. Ultimately, the arrival of this collection evokes both the brand and the city’s past while defining their present and future.
