Clever Couture: DAKS from catwalk to high street
Published 15/10/2010 | 05:00
DAKS is a heritage brand synonymous with British luxury. More recently this 100-year-old label has been upping its fashion stakes and experimenting with edgy designers such as Giles Deacon and their current designer Filippo Scuffi who has maintained the labels British sensibility while adding modern edge.
The winter collection was androgynous with boy meets girl brogues, manish pants, and crew neck knits worn over button-up white shirts.
DAKS's instantly recognisable houndstooth check was in evidence as a flash of lining in a contemporary cape.
A subdued palette and the use of leather, hoods, capes and slim cut pants kept with this season's aesthetic for minimalism with less definitely being more at DAKS.
