Casely-Hayford Explores the Dark Side For Fall 2010

May 24, 2010


There's always been a healthy tension between the spiffy tradition embedded in Saville Row culture and the British tendency toward anarchy. Father and son duo Casely-Hayford have created a collection that sits squarely at the intersection of these two opposing forces, building on the afro punk posturing they summoned for spring, and adding military rigueur to their fall offering. The concept was initially born out of a conversation between Charlie and Joe about the recession, and how people subconsciously react to the doom and gloom with their sartorial choices—hence this idea of armor, protection and a darker, moodier palette. The pair took a trip to Japan before shooting the current lookbook, so you'll notice subtle Eastern influences in the styling. Charlie (Casely-Hayford junior) had his first kimono fitted and so some of the most masculine silhouettes are belted or cinched at the waist, and as usual the results have us completely and utterly floored.
