New York: The Al-Fayed and Goncalves brothers who make up Bespoken found their muse this season in a pile of old photos depicting their great grandfather on a navy supply ship during World War II. The authentic inspiration resulted in a sartorial-naval aesthetic, replete with British tailoring, heritage details and a fresh take on the ubiquitous Breton striped tee.
