Baartsmans and Siegel Men's RTW Fall 2014

It was all about a hybrid between relaxed and formal — the smoking jacket meets shawl collar superceded the double breasted suits of seasons past.

Baartsmans and Siegel Mens RTW Fall 2014

Wouter Baartmans and Amber Siegel — another design duo who are also life partners met while they were both working at Viktor & Rolf and their backgrounds variously take in YSL, Preen, Roland Mouret and Saga and Copenhagen furriers. Outerwear is a mainstay and alongside a three-piece collaboration with Penfield on luxe hooded neoprene parkas with rabbit trims came a water-resistant coated trench complete with mink collar and another lounge trench that resembled velvet but was actually sheared mink. “We’re always looking at cinematic portrayals of men's wear,” proffered Siegel. “Michael Mann in a bleak inky Siberian landscape,” continuing that they’re driven by the desire “for things to be tactile and super indulgent.” Otherwise it was all about a hybrid between relaxed and formal — the smoking jacket meets shawl collar superceded the double breasted suits of seasons past and drawstring formal joggers came in Hainsworth RAF wool with crease lines stitched in and velvet stripes down the side in a nod to the smoking suit.
