Paul Costelloe Autumn/Winter 2014 Collection

Gary Cahill & Paul Costelloe

Inspiration is in keeping with the brands British Heritage incorporating a respect for craftsmanship of the tailor and weaver in a contemporary manner .

At Paul Costelloe's presentation for London Collections:Men, Chelsea footballer Gary Cahill tries on a few pieces. Gary was also the brand ambassador for Paul Costelloe in 2013.

Italian inspired twisted yarns and blended Jaspe yarns are used to create a mix of modern yet classic British tweed and micro-checks with a salt and pepper colour base that’s infused with highlights of mustard and Chianti.

Tartan is prominent and the Blackwatch and Lindsay tartans have been modernised to include an antique finish with flamboyant faux pony hair trimmings ( check the collar).

Coats range from Herringbone to bold over check jackets with hints of velvet and corduroy.

Also inspired by Pre-Raphaelite painters and dark Art Nouveau interiors, the collection features opulent and luxurious fabrics in the form of velvet and smooth satin, infused with dark teal and navy with a hint of burnished gold.

A quirky touch for the shirt prints includes the fox, also Paul Costelloe's logo.

Some of the AW14 collection will be available in the summer at  www.houseoffraser.co.uk
