The House of Nines AW13 Collection
The House of Nines creators Ross Paul Keenan and Shamrez Marawat challenge the perception of British menswear with a truly beautiful collection for AW13.
The new range is classic and sleek in aesthetic, featuring sharply engineered silhouettes and muted tones. Almost architectural in feel, the prominent use of black ensures this contemporary approach to design retains a sense of timelessness.
The brand is renowned for their high quality construction, utilising traditional tailoring methods to craft and engineer each collection. For AW13, finely woven canvas and lightweight wool have been sourced direct from Italy to give the pieces their fine form and structure, whilst premium untreated soft lambs skin, calf leather and cashmere add to the sense of luxury.
Usability is at the forefront of each design, with detailing such as signature side seams inserted for comfort, fit and easier access to pockets.
Highlights of the latest offering include the effortlessly stylish range of white shirts. A must have in any man’s wardrobe, they are made from fine Italian cotton, with mother of pearl buttons sourced from Australia. Lines are kept clean and sharp, whilst military references help to create the ultimate staple piece for the modern gent.
Knitwear is also strong – in particular the ‘Serpico Jumper’, which incorporates the brand’s signature ‘suit of armour’ serpent motif along with leather shoulder patches and neck collar fasteners.
