SOFT TAILOR
London: Oliver Spencer’s trademark soft tailoring was at the center of his S/S 14 collection in the form of easy-wear cotton suiting and pinstriped linens, all rendered in a wash of dusty tones punctuated by bright cherry red or marigold. Pattern made an impact as well, particularly an artistic bleach splatter motif applied to both rolled trousers and chambray shirting – an edgy look for Spencer that mixed seamlessly with his more refined pieces.— Nina Stotler
