The Spring/ Summer 2011 Aquascutum menswear collection is inspired by the quintessential British summer. It brings together technical innovation and a clean modernity, whist continuing to reference the brand’s rich sartorial heritage. Favourite pieces and iconic styles are given a fresh lease of life in modern fabrications.
Outerwear is ultra light using the most pioneering of materials with high tech details – cotton and linen blend fabrics are finished with laser welded zips and seam sealing; techniques and finishes traditionally associated with high performance sportswear. The summer parka is shorter with utilitarian patch pockets in vintage military cloth and an enlarged house check. The classic trench coat is updated with a slimmer, shorter silhouette whilst retaining the original detailing: gun flaps, throat tab and epaulettes. Fabricated in crisp technical cotton, the essential trench feels new and desirable. The now famous Aquamac is offered in an array of colours and have been expanded into a larger story of shapes and styles, including the bomber.
Tailoring has been honed to perfection with a slimmer classic block. Aquascutum are proud to support british manufacturing by using the highest quality fabrics sourced from British mills. The combination of modern cut and these fabrics has produced a range of great wardrobe staples. Shirts are also slim cut in brilliant white, sky and midnight blue. The attention to detail and form is refined, giving the shirts a flawless finish.
Cotton blazers have a less constructed feel, worn with tailored shorts for a relaxed, yet immaculate look. The brand new highgrove trouser is offered in a subtle pale colour palette for a point of difference. Knitwear in mercerized cottons and the finest cashmere, features a playful and intelligent take on the club check.
The Aquascutum LTD collection continues to focus on sharp tailoring with contemporary detailing. A satin shawl collar adds Gallic charm to the ‘Ginsberg’ jacket, while a framed collar adorns the ‘Denton’. Unstructured double and single breasted jackets are available in classic creamy cotton/ linen twills, or seersucker stripes. Shirting makes a vibrant splash with stripes and ginghams. New rounded collars and frame edged cuffs update the look. The short raincoat with bound double gun flaps in military green coated cotton is a key outwear piece.
