Inspired by all “the creative men” in her life, Brit designer Phoebe English debuted her AW17 ‘MAN’ collection at London Fashion Week Men’s during a presentation on Friday 6th January in the BFC Presentation Space. The completely ‘Made in England’ collection stayed true to signature ‘MAN’ ethos, presenting accessible pieces with a relaxed, casual aesthetic. The key focus of English’s AW17 offering was practicality, displaying a range of utilitarian pieces such as loose-fitting striped shirts, soft lined bombers and casually tailored trousers alongside longline shirts, abstract outerwear and fabrics ranging from dusty velvet to wax-coated cottons.
The colours of Phoebe English ‘MAN’ AW17 range from military charcoal and dark green to ever so slightly more subtle tones of navy, all the while paired with rare elements of off-white to retain an aspect of versatility. Overall, the collection is conventional of English nature, however still manages to present a number of inevitably sought-after separates that will take Autumn/Winter 2017 by storm.
