On Wednesday 9th January, in the setting of Café de Paris, Peter Werth showcased the AW13 collaborative tailoring range with Nutters of Savile Row at London Collections: Men. On the catwalk models were joined by Northern Soul dancers to create a vibrant atmosphere, reflecting the inspiration for the range. The show was attended by press, buyers and celebrities including, David Gandy and Reggie Yates.
The collaborative collection of contemporary tailored sportswear is designed to be sharp enough to enter Mayfair’s private nightspots and sufficiently relaxed for the dance floors of the hottest soulclubs, with a spirit and attitude reflecting the heady heights of life after dark in the 1970’s. It is “Studio 54 meets Wigan Casino”.
The collection features unstructured tailored sportswear in jersey knit fabrics for blazers and shirts (nodding to our origins as a knitwear manufacturer), all delivered with Nutter’s signature oversized lapels, roped shoulders and wide-leg trousers. The knitwear pays homage to Savile Row by incorporating over scaled Prince of Wales, houndstooth and windowpane check designs. Outerwear and accessories complete a look that seamlessly blends the old and new, in a contemporary, modern and relevant way.
The collaboration pays homage to the founders of two truly British and true London brands – just the way Tommy and Peter would have liked it.
