London: For Fall, up-and-comer Thomas Tait stepped away from his sculpted minimalist constructions to focus on Menswear wardrobe basics like the the white button-down shirt and the classic navy peacoat. Looks had a workwear feel, especially those cut in raw denim and suede, and silhouettes — oversized coats and cropped trousers — felt boyish. Luxury appeared in the form of a moss green silk velvet and a finely pleated leather that was used for futuristic turtlenecks, and also replaced the usual rib knit cuffs and waistbands on lustrous wool varsity jackets. Everyday, crisp white “boyfriend shirts” tucked into slouchy leather or velvet pants, shorts and skirts, while collarless floor-sweeping coats offered the clean-lined drama that Tait has become known for. — Anna Jane Davis
