Hentsch Man Autumn/Winter 2014
Hentsch Man has given a taste of things to come with a lookbook for its autumn/winter 2014 collection. In just six years, the brand – started by childhood friends Alexia Hentsch and Max von Hurter – has grown into a worldwide success story.
The latest range presents a darker take on the brand’s signature casual tailoring and quirky prints. The new styles have been influenced by film noir legends, Alfred Hitchcock and David Lynch.
The tailoring is relaxed and comfortable, favouring a generous fit. Double-breasted jackets work well with the relaxed cuts, creating outfits that drape over the wearer.
Hentsch Man has long used print to add a tongue-in-cheek element to its collections. For autumn/winter 2014, the brand has adopted a more sinister approach, with a rich colour palette and mysterious graphics.
Texture is also key; the new collection has an increased focus on knitwear, constructing it in an expanded range of fabrics. Thick knits sit alongside denim, jersey and wool tailoring, which are seasonally-appropriate and complementary.
The footwear featured benefits from collaborations with African sneaker specialists SAWA and US-based slipper brand Stubbs and Wooten. SAWA specialise in high-rise leather and canvas shoes, which are seen alongside the key prints of the collection. The slippers by Stubbs and Wooten offer alternative formal footwear.
Hentsch Man’s autumn/winter 2014 collection puts a dark spin on the brand’s staples but maintains its stance on reliable wardrobe essentials. The range, which was on show at Paris Man last weekend, will also appear at the Jacket Required trade event in London on February 5th and 6th.
