For his Autumn/Winter 2017 collection show Saturday, January 7 on the catwalk of London Fashion Week Men’s, E. Tautz designer Patrick Grant was inspired by men from the countryside. However, this “man” is of the intimate kind; in order to put a modern spin on his collection’s traditional silhouettes, Grant looked at the garb of scarecrows in the countryside of Leeds as depicted by photographer Peter Mitchell in his series “Some Thing Means Everything to Somebody.” The result was elegant wool coats, tailored anoraks, high-waisted belted trousers and open collars that were loosely layered to create the laid back, but fully modern look.
Keeping with the uncanny spirit of the collection, Christian Louboutin created bespoke lace-up trainers in six different colours, from autumnal shades of brown to a darker palette of blues and greys. Constructed from rich suede and with contrasting piping details, the shoes sported a causal round toe and a rubber sole which reflected the relaxed attitude of the E.Tautz man. The show marked yet another synergistic runway collaboration between the two houses for London Fashion Week Mens.
