Hentsch Man is the young British brand that is starting to make waves within the fashion industry; and their latest AW12 collection justifies why they are currently a brand to watch.
This latest offering is a compact selection of elegant basics with the occasional quirky piece thrown in. One of the most pleasing aspects of this collection is the wide array of fabrics being used: herringbones, tweeds, denim and cottons are very much present – creative layering has never been so easy!
As with many collections, it is very easy to get lost and bombarded with too much choice. Hentsch man refrains from this by offering only a handful of carefully selected items – this quote describes this ideal perfectly:
“We want our Hentsch Men to look chic, but not like they’ve fallen out of a catalogue”.
The tweed suit is one piece that really stands out in this collection. Given a slim cut and a revamped dark grey colour, it is perfect for the city gent who likes to add a hint of the country to his office attire without looking like he’s about to go clay pigeon shooting. However, if you do feel the requirement to go that extra mile, simply slip on the brilliant camouflage gilet, simple in its appearance and ever so charming.
Further top picks from the collection include the red ‘Joe’ cords, an appropriate and on trend colour for the autumn months with a relaxed fit that makes them ideal for the weekend – soften their bright visual impact by pairing with some dark shoes.
All in all, it is a carefully considered and aesthetically pleasing AW12 collection by Hentsch Man. Their ethos is maybe something that their larger competitors should take note of and look at how a smaller collection sometimes have more impact.
