FARAH MENSWEAR LAUNCHES TAILORING LINE FOR AW16
Instantly recognisable by the golden F, Farah is a brand famous for go to, trend-led menswear staples. This season sees Farah’s move into the world of tailoring with a collection of fully constructed suits and separates. Farah’s approach to menswear; creating classics that compliment modern life and guarantee instant style, is mirrored throughout the tailoring line, offering Farah customer’s the same aesthetic seen within the main collections.
Inspiration comes from German industrial designer Dieter Rams, who is considered to be one of the world’s greatest product designers. His work in the 60s and 70s was some of the most innovative of all-time. His unobtrusive approach and belief in simple design generated timeless appeal and quality in his products. Farah’s Tailoring range continues Rams’ pursuit of minimalist design and incorporates his ethos of refined simplicity.
The collection consists of a selection of 3 piece suiting and separate’s options. These include classic styles such as single and double breasted jackets with varying notch and peak lapels. Trousers and waistcoats are found with uniformed skinny cuts across the collection and simply follow the silhouette of the jackets. Farah has chosen a tactile range of fabrics and colours to construct the suits. These include fine twills in burgundy and brilliant blue and textured hopsack in bottle green and light tan. Woven hounds tooth also features in several styles. Micro weave 3 piece suits in dark navy or grey marl are also available in this collection. Separates take inspiration from the suiting and feature in a charcoal tweed and a navy blue hopsack.
Historically Farah has been using hopsack within its collections since the 60s; most recognisably in the trousers that became favourites within subcultural tribes of the 70s and 80s. Hopsack is naturally crease resistant which makes it ideal for the construction of modern suiting.
Looking closely at the collection, details such as gold piping bonded to interior seams and a subtle F pattern woven into jacket and trouser linings can be found. The collection will also feature a Tuxedo styled shawl-lapelled jacket available in dark navy or burgundy.
Prices range from £160-250 available from www.farah.co.uk
