The rough with the smooth
For AW15 Oliver Spencer takes influence from the work of artist and sculptor David Nash; the natural environment of his work is reflected through a variety of fabrications, textures and tones.
Fabrics that are soft to touch appear throughout; alpaca, recycled cashmere and super fine lambswool. Clean lines and details deliver a feeling of contemporary Luxury.
Texture takes a central role this season; a complete sensorial collection, sleek fabrics are delivered in hard silhouettes; the rough with the smooth.
The colour palette is influenced by the natural environment.Charcoals and heavy greys are juxtaposed with cream to imitate the effect of charred wood. Accent bright colours and floral prints punctuate the collection.
Shape is modern and clean, with silhouettes reflecting the structural influence of Nash’s sculptures. The collection has significantly matured, producing an overall consummate aesthetic; pushing the boundaries between contemporary and luxury.
Key pieces include: A five-yarn lambswool over-sized roll neck, double-breasted coat in alpacca, midnight Sheepskin on the reverse and a suede bomber jacket, made in England scotch grain leather shoes and accessories.
The Oliver Spencer AW15 collection was unveiled on the runway at The Old Sorting Office, 21-23 New Oxford Street on Saturday 10th January 2015 at 4pm.
