120 years of iconic British design could not be more promising (ánd rewarding) than DAKS’ show for next Fall and Winter. Trench coats, army jackets, checked blazers, velvet evening wear, hunting garments, riding gear, boots, Sherlock capes and caps and all those wonderful pieces that make the English lord’s wardrobe a timeless treasure chest were re-edited for modern day living where life in airports, cold office spaces, miserably wet city streets and drafty sites are just as much to be suffered as one enjoys elegant evenings spent alongside polished mahogany bars, catching up in buttoned leather clubchairs or in suede lined limousines. DAKS brought it all to life and turned every silhouette into a gem of drop dead gorgeous masculine luxury redefined. Fur, cashmere, camel, tweed and leathers all knit, stitched, sewn, tied or patched together in a wonderfully modern blend of English high quality perfection. Tradition meets innovation. Quality salutes its demanding buyer. Sporting those Royal Warrants sets a standard and DAKS delivered what was to be expected yet again: excellence!
