TED BAKER AW16

Be the best-dressed man for the job in relaxed and laid-back tailoring with crisp lines and clean shapes – a knowing nod to the sport-luxe look of the season. Interesting textures and soft silhouettes make light work of swift departures and incognito exits. Cuffed trousers, bomber-style jackets and patch-pocket blazers are practical pieces you can grab-and-dash at the drop of a hat.

Once darkness falls, become a master of disguise in faultless tailoring and sleek separates. Brace yourself for impact in oversized checks on blazers, florals on tailoring and geos on accessories. Statement, tactile fabrics are for those who need never blend in with the crowd (undercover agents, please disregard).

The season’s accessories of choice are slick and sharp. A luxe rucksack, masterfully crafted from textured Italian leather, is your new-season bag of tricks, keeping your essential assets stylish and secure.

Ladies, complete your AW mission in swathes of warm and snug wool, boucle and herringbone that are perfect for getting cosy once things turn frosty.

Silhouettes are given new life with fresh takes on the traditional (see the fit-and-flare dress, high necks and asymmetric hems), while prints feature delicate roses, striking checks and sweet lemons. Fabrics are alluring and beautiful, with frayed boucle, brushed dogtooth and tactile tulle stealing the show. Every little detail has been considered to the nth degree; diamond-cut hardware, braid work and beautiful embroidery are Ted’s secret weapons.
