Please welcome Daniel W. Fletcher graduate collection of men's clothing line, consisting of exaggerated fit separates printed in stripes. This collection is a reaction to the gentrification and re-development of urban space in London. The writings of Ruth Glass and witnessing first hand the gentrification of London neighborhoods inspired Daniel W. Fletcher to create these outfits. The showcased looks reflect the mix of cultures and styles as a result of socio-economic change. Designer was also inspired by the early collections of Hardy Aimes and 1960’s London dandies which are juxtaposed with the boys captured in Alastair Mclellans’s ‘Ultimate Clothing Company’.
Many pieces fuse British heritage with sportswear details and fabrics. You are about to see bonded leather outerwear emblazoned with appliqué reading ‘Peckham Pony Club’, asymmetric wool overcoats mixed with lightweight, semi-transparent base layers, shaved mink collar polo shirts, fox fur bomber jackets, inside out printed silk pyjama sets: slim fitting paneled joggers, sheer striped tee shirts. Speaking of accessories, then we see hard shell briefcases in a variety of python, suede and striped silks. All in all, if you are in search of a luxury street wear, then you should take a close up look at these marvelous creations.
