It’s time for a peacock revolution ...
The spring collection from Ben Sherman was aptly named “Peacock Revolution”, harking back to the 1960s when Mick Jagger types were not afraid of donning a bold and distinctive dress sense. This mood allowed the label to expect from their on brand heritage suits and shirts and into new territory; that being a new version of jeans, in rakish tan and camel hues. Much bolder and more exciting than navy and indigo. A highlight of the made in London offering was the large cuffed, tapered version that were high waisted and constructed from selvage denim. They stood about from the more tailored pieces which dominated the rest of the clothing that appeared on the catwalk.
The concept of the peacock led to a more playful collection that we are used to from the brand, with checks and rich floral prints on Cuban shirts, sweaters and even on the sleeves of a blazer. As you would expect for a spring collection, fabrics were lightweight. Special mention should be given to the parka/ shirt with fishtail details that we have our eyes on for next season.
