Edward Crutchley AW19 at London Fashion Week Men's

The swish of a long three-button pin stripe coat welcomes in Edward Crutchleyʼs Autumn/Winter 2019 collection as this season draws on the iconography of work.

A sartorial, no-frills attitude meets brassy textile inspired by the jollity and camp of QVC, that person at the office Christmas party and a maleficent, magnificent Grace Jones in A View to a Kill (1985).
 Signature roomy silhouettes have been slimmed down in homage to the no-nonsense tailoring of mid-1980s Japanese and American RTW.

The attitude is one of dressing for the occasion. Saving that Lurex fil coupé chiffon open collar shirt for the office outing. Dusting off a special Panné velvet suit to wear to dinner.

A new deconstructed snakeskin print is a nod to power dressing, pomp and parties.

Oversized is an attitude more than a covering for the body.

Trousers have zips running down their front creases. A long-sleeved Cuban shirt is in printed velvet.

Crutchley has collaborated with a number of artisanal producers and designers. Merino wool and cashmere jacquard used for outerwear and blankets is from Johnstons of Elgin – makers of the softest cashmere garments in the world.

Classic wool tailoring fabrics are from Yorkshire-based mill Bower Roebuck.
Stephen Jones has designed a riff on a traditional Korean gat and a pillbox hat in soft swakara.

Sunglasses are by sustainable eyewear brand Wires and high-shine loafers are by Christian Louboutin.
