Patrick Grant, brand envoy and style ambassador for E Tautz decided to forgo his usual intimate salon presentation, and opt instead for a larger catwalk presentation. Currently enjoying critical acclaim, E Tautz is carving out itself a distinct and clear position in the British menswear Industry.
While many designers on the LFW menswear schedule are focusing on a radical and innovative approach - E Tautz is offering a grown up and elegant aesthetic that has it's roots in traditional menswear tailoring.
The enduring philosophy for E Tautz is to create simple menswear that has it's roots in well-cut British menswear. This season Grant and his design team took a trip to the Isle of Mull where the colours of environment became a catalyst for the collection. Burnt seaweed, Atlantic oak, bracken, lichen and peeling paint on an old trawler created a new direction of strong warm hues - the most confident being a rich burgundy and deep mustard. Paul Poiret was noted as another reference as bold colour drenched beautifully cut tailored suits and field coats. Roll neck sweaters in fine merino wool, micro-cord trousers, double breasted pea coats and tweed jackets all adhered to E Tautz's classic definition of modern menswear staples that focus on refined cuts in quality fabrics.
