Prince Charles to hosts a tribute to English Menswear and it’s notable designers.
Prior to his son, the Duke of Cambridge millstone 30th birthday, His Royal Highness, The Prince of Wales will be celebrating the launch of the London Fashion Collections for Men, a new enterprise featuring some of England’s biggest fashion names, and some internal big shots. Truly fitting for the man that exemplifies classic men’s attire, and how’s style has been quoted as: “He is one of the nation’s finest wearers of classical clothes, a Savile Row stalwart who likes his Northampton-made shoes shiny, his jackets double-breasted and his shirts freshly delivered from Jermyn Street.”
The party will take place at St James Palace. In attendance: Sir Paul Smith, Oliver Spencer and Patrick Grant of E. Tautz, which should come as no surprise given the designers aptitude for traditional British tailoring (with modern twists).
Tom Ford, Christopher Bailey of Burberry and Calvin Klein have also committed to the event and will be presenting a series of runway shows, amongst uniquely themed cultural events.
Dylan Jones, The editor of British GQ commented on the event: “Menswear is something we are extraordinarily good at,”….”It is an intrinsic part of British heritage and history.” Enough said, why not celebrate a nations ability to define men’s style and clothing for nearly a millennium.
Harold Tillman, Chairman of the British Fashion Council, said: “It is a great honour to have the support of HRH the Prince of Wales to launch London Collections: Men and champion British menswear and culture.”
It is a pleasure to see The Prince of Wales broaden his knowledge of Britain’s fashion scene, and with such gusto. Be a part of the reception for some of the nation’s most innovative designers of men’s attire and hosting the event is not only a wonderful PR move, but reaffirms the solidarity of British fashion.
