Revived heritage menswear brand E. Tautz takes its first tentative dip into womenswear with a tomboy take on the men’s Spring/Summer 2015 collection.
E. Tautz creative director Patrick Grant hit the right note for contemporary denim back in June last year when he presented his Spring/Summer 2015 menswear collection of concept-cut denims. Showcased at London Collections: Men, Grant sent a brigade of models down the catwalk in bold and oversized silhouettes that showcased the labels distinctive reinterpretation of Saville Row classics. Combining an old school elegance with a contemporary take on menswear, the collection was a hit amongst men and women alike. So it wasn’t surprising when Grant decided to offer up the line for the females in this ultimate showcase of tomboy style.
Like the menswear collection, the women’s line explores a 1950s naval uniform theme with a heavy dose of maritime stripes and saturated denims. Structured and upsized fits like wide-leg, high-waist jeans and pleated shorts are re-proportioned with a more feminine form, layered a mix of raw and washed denims for tonal contrast. Other masculine separates like denim tees, fisherman knits and striped shirts further emphasise the tomboy style.
