Thomas Pink AW16 Menswear
For AW16, Thomas Pink takes inspiration from the romance and refuge of the British coast and countryside, uniting city-dwellers with the urgency for rural escape.
The season extracts inspiration from local architecture, industry and environment – exploring built and natural elements we Brits have cultivated on our island nation: from royal retreats to the homespun craft of village industry.
Frederik Willems, Head of Design at Thomas Pink, says: “The collection takes us on a sartorial journey around the UK, visiting some our best-loved coastal towns – from Brighton with its resplendent Royal Pavilion, to Padstow and the Isle of Skye with their rugged coastlines.”
Colour plays a hugely prominent role in Thomas Pink’s Autumn/Winter 16 collection, with five key hues of cranberry, navy blue, forest green, mustard and turquoise.
Cranberry appears as a subtle stripe in a Prince of Wales check and a chalk stripe suiting whilst making a bolder impact on jumpers and patterns on ties, pocket squares and scarves.
Autumnal shades of mustard and forest green appear on more country casual clothes such as tweed jackets, check shirts and jumpers.
Florence Torrens, Creative Director at Thomas Pink, says: “The inspiration for this season’s show comes from architect Luis Barragan. Block colour in different planes was a feature of many of his buildings and designs and offered an interesting solution to displaying the collection against the highpoints of colour which runs through the season.”
