Singapore. Trinity Limited Menswear Brands – Cerruti 1881, Kent & Curwen, Gieves & Hawkes – unveils its Autumn Winter collection in its stores in Paragon.
Mr. Nino Cerruti’s philosophy of simple and functional design with clean and modern elegance was the basis for The Cerruti 1881 Fall/Winter 2015 collection. This is achieved by using innovative fabrics, rich textures and a fusion of tailoring and sportswear. Cut and details are simple and polished. It is categorised into three themes : Autumn Chic, Winter Alps, and Monaco. Autumn Chic is rich in texture, luxurious, soft in layering/deconstruction, nonchalant in its attitude, and elegant. Autumn woods and the French countryside leaves is the inspiration for this set. Warm, organic, and leisurely chic by nature, with shades of grey, dark brown, rustic camel, military green tones, dark navy, white and khaki. Sports elegance with a technical twist best describes the Winter Alps range. Mixing elements between tailoring and modern fabric, this collection is a hybrid concept redefining urban sportswear. The Monaco collection emphasize structured and refined tailoring. Modern suit silhouette and the tailored coat with clean cuts and close to the body tailoring comprised Monaco. Inspired by the chic French Riviera, the mood is rich and truly captures the essence of luxurious elegance with color story that plays on jewel tones of deep purple/dark burgundy, black, white, dark navy, shades of grey, and rustic camel.

Kent & Curwen
British brand Kent & Curven Fall Winter collection marks the return to a clear and precise vision for Kent & Curwen: truly elevated modern sportswear. Through identifying and carefully retooling the iconic men’s silhouettes, such as the peacoat and the bomber amongst others, a forward thinking yet grounded collection is born. The “Distortion” of these styles, whether in the form of unexpected garment fabrications or single breasted topcoats that appear as double breasted, creates a highly desirable coherent direction for Kent & Curwen.
The advertisement campaign for this season was shot in White Cliffs of Dover, one of the most recognizable landmark in England. It was photographed by highly acclaimed fashion photographer and film director – Sebastian Faena, featuring a prominent face in male modeling – Simon Nessman.
Gieves & Hawkes
The look for the Autumn Winter collection of Gieves & Hawkes is masculine and powerful, centred around outerwear and overcoats. Softer shapes and rich textures in cashmere and double faced wool are trimmed with mink and dressed with Astrakhan. Daywear suit is elegant with tonally mismatched in micro patterns of textured yarns in cashmere, silk and wool. The shade is moody and mixed up with the flash of a silk scarf or tie. Dress shoes are hand burnished dark maroon and navy over black. The weekend is urban and dressed up in dark indigo and air force grey. Heavy cashmere knitwear is paired with a grey Nubuck bomber or a soft tonal Prince of Wales overcoat and grey crocodile lug soled shoes. The reefer is in aubergine cashmere, the pea coat in shearling. Eveningwear is subverted with oversized herringbones and Prince of Wales checks morphing into rich shades of navy and claret worn with fine gauge knitwear or dark evening shirts. The formal coat is sharply tailored in dark burgundy Alpaca and black pony skin.
