This season is all about the 1970s revival, but few are doing it with the elegance of Original Penguin Blue Label.
The preppy American brand’s premium collection, Blue Label, is bringing the era of disco to the present with its AW16 collection. The 24-piece range strikes the balance between casual and formal by using simple silhouettes and infusing them with luxurious details and vintage-inspired prints.
Included in the line is a roll neck sweater in colour-of-the-moment camel, as well as silk-blend knitted polos with throw-back detailing. Woven shirts made of Japanese fabrics and silk-blends are also standout pieces, both in style and craftsmanship. And the label’s iconic Earl shirt gets a Blue Label update in a cotton-silk blend, coming in rich tones of burnt caramel, velvety plum and deep navy.
Designed to elevate every man’s wardrobe through the use of subtle, sophisticated prints and patterns, the Original Penguin Blue Label AW16 collection takes the luxury of 1970s style and turns it into something wearable and contemporary.
The Original Penguin Blue Label AW16 collection will be available later this year from originalpenguin.co.uk.
