For fall/winter 2019 E-Tautz offered a bejeweled vision of relaxed menswear. Jeweled tones of blue, green and burgundy walked the runway, with creams and grays to complement the looks. The collection was full of slouchy inter-seasonal menswear pieces featuring oversized wide-leg pants, shortened bomber jackets and double-breasted collarless tops - a collection that could take you beyond fall and winter and on into the following seasons. Single-button blazers were tailored with an oversized aesthetic and athletically-striped and elaborately-tasseled scarves were added to accessorize.
The pants though tailored, seemed cumbersome in cotton and corduroy which gave a nod to the eighties era, something we’ve seen a lot of recently in all the collections. A casual show of basics elevated with smart blazers or unusually cut tops, such as the oversized blue cowl-neck piece, kept the collection interesting yet definitely wearable. As usual, designer Patrick Grant is at the forefront of modern fashion, blazing a trail with his premium classic casuals that will last a lifetime: another effortlessly powerful collection.
