Chester Barrie Autumn Winter 2017 at London Fashion Week

Chester Barrie’s Autumn Winer 2017 collection blends opulence, elegance and sophistication to create a collection that lends an air of authority and brings a sense of style to gentleman who know the value of a good dressing.

Occasionwear celebrates the ultra-classic by adding a contemporary sophistication to tuxedos and smoking jackets.

Velvets in chocolate, navy and coal black are fashioned into modern smoking jackets with rich, deep Mogador shawl collars in complementary tones

 This is dresswear for when it matters most; for the Red Carpet, society balls and glamorous weddings.



 Colour and texture are to the fore in the Chester Barrie jacket collection. Urban tweeds have drape and warmth and come in petrol blue, russet and moss green as well as the more classic hues. Checks and tartans also play their part bringing highlight tones and surface interest.



The standout piece though is the camel blazer – a very modern interpretation of an almost forgotten classic. The highlight item in the coat department for AW17 is a cashmere change coat with faux fur collar and lapels.


The Chester Barrie tailoring story majors on bringing gravitas to suit wearing. English and Italians cloths (including some luxurious West Country flannels) have substance but are soft to the touch. Texture is an important element – especially with tweeds and Prince of Wales checks – but it is the construction that makes it distinctive. Structured suits are strong of shoulder and sculpted at the chest; the unstructured tailoring moulds to the body without restricting movement. Both flatter and enhance; the shallow armhole allows for greater freedom of movement and a trimmer appearance.
