Peter Jensen SS14 Menswear Collection
Injecting a fun and quirky twist into menswear, the Peter Jensen’s SS14 lookbook is inspired by the iconic style of Andy Warhol. The male model is styled to resemble the influential American artist, favouring pea coats, jeans, corduroys and blazers.
Throwing together his men’s SS14 and women’s resort 2014 collection in one catalogue, Jensen knows how to multi-task. Of course, it wouldn’t be a successful marketing gimmick if the female model wasn’t wearing brand spanking new Peter Jensen pieces as well. The wannabe Warhol and his model muse interact throughout the lookbook, engaging in various scenarios which include grocery shopping, watching a film and posing on the red carpet.
Captured entirely in studio, strategic props give the shoot a playful personality and reflect how artists can find creativity in a blank canvas. You won’t find models reposing moodily on couches here – this is a lookbook designed to stand apart. Championing a tongue-in-cheek take on fashion and art, the new collections are for those who don’t take themselves too seriously.
Heavy in monochromatic prints and bold colours, the SS14 menswear collection has a vivid resonance with the pop art Warhol pioneered. Slightly nerdy office wear meets playfully ironic slogan shirts emblazoned with the words ‘money money money’, whilst trainers are juxtaposed with smart tailored pieces. Complete with a knitted jumper crowded with Boston Terriers and a shirt printed all-over with the suit of spades, the new collection pulls a wry smile in the face of all that’s serious.
