I came across this outstanding Men's brand - BRIAN CLARKE, the man behind the brand- on my press day in the Savoy Hotel and immediately I was drawn to it.
Brian Clarke the designer as I was told by lizparry.co.uk has a compelling imagination and for his Spring / Summer 2011 he takes the 'repressed gentleman' as his muse. He also takes his influence for this current season from the old Etonian mentality and the dying breed of gentlemen.
English heritage is a big plus throughout his Spring / Summer 11 right to the core. There is also a tougher undercurrent that threatens to undercut the collections' tranquility.
Also in this SS11 collection is a bib-fronted pinstripe shirts with matching dickie-bows are toughened up by diagonal zipped nappa leather jacket in black or deep plum, plaid shirts are paired with cropped-below-the-knee suit trousers and twisted brogue ankle boots.
Here are are some of his SS11 collection. I hope he puts up show at London Fashion week. It will be worth seeing.
