Trust Ben Sherman to bring forth the most of British fashion classics, and infuse them with a tinge of contemporary revisions. The AW14 collection identifies four distinct trends that evolve throughout the season, and blends together signature styles, fabrics, and prints.
Ever the brand to spearhead the box-back pleats on shirts, back-collar buttons and locker loops, Ben Sherman’s ‘Heritage DNA’ series encapsulates signature elements of the brand, with colour palettes that sprawl from vivid orange and brick red, British ochre and mustard yellow, Victorian green and deep caviar.
The British Outdoors trend is dominated by the Harrington Mac hybridisation, of classic Harrington and a mac; the Norfolk Blazer, a quilted bomber jacket that works alongside a new foliage print for t-shirts and shirts; and roll-neck sweaters of knitwear conditions alongside waffled cardigans and mouline knitted jumpers, with colour palettes of textured checks and bright tartans.
Ben Sherman approaches the British Sartorial trend with a twist, applying wool car coats with oversized checks and a touch of sharp tailoring and twill trousers, whereas the antithesis British Casuals puts crewneck jumpers over check shirts and selvedge denim.
The Ben Sherman AW14 collection is now available at the Ben Sherman outlets located at Pavilion KL and Bangsar Village II.
