Luxury brand Duchamp London are famous for their outlandish British dandyism and impeccable use of colour and pattern. They have recently released their spring/summer 2012 lookbook, which accompanies the current Duchamp ‘Man’ range – and neither disappoint. The collection offers a variety of colourful garments – from lightweight summer jackets to straight cut cotton trousers and everything else in between – which will perfectly compliment and accentuate your summer wardrobe.
If you’re not brave enough to go all out with one of the bold statement pieces on offer, it’s easy to incorporate subtle touches of flair here and there through Duchamp accessories; a shot of colour at your ankle with their vast array of beautiful socks, or a dash of pattern in your breast pocket with their amazing selection of gentlemanly pocket squares.
Although Duchamp offers everything from socks to ties, the core of the collection is very much occasion wear – for the man who is not afraid of dressing up. Ideal for summer weddings, garden parties and a day at the races, the outfits in the lookbook ooze quality and attention to detail – from the butterfly logo under the collar of a blazer to five button cuffs.
You can sleep well knowing that everything in the range is UK made. For examples, the cufflinks are mastered in Birmingham, whilst the silk ties are hand woven at one of the oldest silk weavers in England.
Yes Duchamp is very eccentric in appeal but could there be a better year for flaunting all things British? It is, after all, the year of the London Olympics and the Diamond Jubilee! So don your blazer, tweak your pochette and fly the flag for Great Britain with Duchamp London this season.
The full range is available now over on the Duchamp official site.
