This season tailoring takes on a new role. Whether worn off-duty or in the office, let spring/summer ’14′s suiting add instant sophistication to your look.
THE LONG AND SHORT OF IT

This season’s tailoring calls for a sartorial rethink, a novel approach. And, although spring/summer ‘14’s suiting displays a reverence for traditional craftsmanship, modern cuts, colours and details offer an up-to-date aesthetic. Suiting’s new sensibility shouldn’t stop at design detail though, take cues from the seasonal shift in styling codes and embrace the versatility of SS14’s tailoring. How to wear, dressed up or dressed down?
Thanks to the versatility of the new collection, tailoring can be transformed to suit the occasion. For a traditional take on suiting with an of-the-moment update wear your tailoring in shades of navy, but for a sophisticated summer aesthetic layer up soft shades of cream. Or, for the coolest contrast try wearing separates in opposing hues or lengths. Either way, this season’s tailoring’s ability to transform provides endless sartorial style.
