After the recent closing of their collection, Obedient Sons, Swaim and Christina Hutson picked themselves up and went right back to designing with their new line, Hutson. Inspired by the secret world of Paris in the ’30s, the clothes had an interesting mix of masculine tailoring with feminine, sensitive drapes and prints. A novel approach at outerwear silhouettes meant exaggerated, broad shoulders, but still unconstructed and soft. Knits with a cobalt blue pop were elongated and layered under a cropped, slim suit jacket in grey. Creased pants tapered down the leg until they met up with chunky brogues. Some of the jackets had Nehru collars and intriguing tapestry-like textures. It will be interesting to see the design duo explore another one of their inner voices as this collection unfolds in seasons ahead.
