Esquire Singular Suit Project featuring Kim Jones, Jeremy Deller, Patrick Grant & Antony Gormley

By Isabelle OCarroll on July 16th, 2009

Esquire has brought together some of our favourite designers and our most art-throb artists for the Singular Suit Project which opens at Somerset House on July 31st.

Patrick Grant from Savile Row tailors Norton & Sons teamed up with one of our favourite artists, Turner Prize winner Jeremy Deller to produce a US-style boilersuit which accumulates patches as mementoes of the wearer’s life. Richard James‘ sheer tailored suit takes inspiration from Spencer Tunick‘s mass nude photographs and just so happens to be bang on trend. Newly appointed Dunhill Director Kim Jones worked with Terence Koh on an-all white suit, with mixed-media embellishments which cracks and ages as it’s worn.

The full feature will appear in a special hardback edition of Esquire’s September issue out on Aug 6, in the meantime check out our thumbnail gallery featuring a selection of the designs.

E Tautz Press Day A/W 09

Yours truly missed the E.Tautz show when they made their catwalk debut at last September’s London Fashion Week so it was a real treat to see the collection up close and personal.

This is no fine cashmeres and silks Italian-style luxury brand, but rather a collection of heirloom pieces with a rugged, vintage feel. The handknit patched sweaters with foxes and castle emblems are pure André Benjamin and we’re big fans of the bow ties, which from afar look like Japanese Shibori prints. The jackets are cut for a full chest and taper in at the waist, which is quite an unusual cut given the recent fashion for ultra-slim fits but the retro look feels like a breath of fresh air.

Patrick Grant, who headed the revival of parent company Norton & Sons, was there looking stylish as ever. Not a time you want your camera to be out of battery! Jump through for more images of the collection.
