During day two of LCM the modern British shirt maker Thomas Pink – part of the Moet Hennessey Louis Vuitton group – unveiled the AW/16 collection at the Institute of Contemporary Arts.
The new season takes inspiration from the romance and refuge of the British coast and countryside, uniting city-dwellers with the urgency for rural escape. It extracts inspiration from local architecture, industry and environment – exploring built and natural elements we Brits have cultivated on our island nation: from royal retreats to the homespun craft of village industry.
Frederik Willems, Head of Design at Thomas Pink, says;
“The collection takes us on a sartorial journey around the UK, visiting some our best-loved coastal towns – from Brighton with its resplendent Royal Pavilion, to Padstow and the Isle of Skye with their rugged coastlines.”
Colour plays a hugely prominent role in Thomas Pink’s collection and to highlight the five key hues of the season – cranberry, navy blue, forest green, mustard and turquoise – the modern British shirt maker showcased looks against block colour screens in corresponding colours.
