“This season I looked at the theme of ‘sundown’ — I wanted to do something based around holidays, and that point in the day where one sits down, has a drink and considers how to spend the rest of the evening. It is a moment of absolute relaxation and yet anticipation — a simple concept, but a happy one. The use of bright cocktail colors inspires memories of holidays gone by, but it is refreshed through the quality of fabric. The suits are actually made from shirting linen. Two years ago, this would have been impossible, but changes in technology have allowed us to create suits which are almost weightless.”
