‘Reviving the old, reinventing the new’ – Emmy Collins London unveils his autumn/winter 2011 collection.
Avant-garde designer Emmy Collins has unveiled his autumn/winter 2011 collection, partly inspired by the quintessential English gentleman as the designer has observed them with a little more than a passing curiosity since moving into his new showroom at Shoreditch in London’s East end. While his shirts and ties are epitomized by a myriad of prints and patterns from abstracts to geometric discs, paisleys and polka dots, suits and jackets come in much more subdued colours than most are familiar with in Emmy Collins.
Jacket colours range from violets and indigos in solids and stripes to caramel brown plaids and chocolate tweeds. “Even as I continue to reinvent myself, I wanted this collection to appeal to more people without losing its edginess” said Emmy.
The difference in this collection will be immediately evident to the keen observer of the Emmy Collins evolution. In some aspects, the collection revives the classic English hunting jacket with a hint of the countryside and great coats are presented with a daring twist but with the same in impressive tailoring. In other areas, the designer takes a leap into the future to reinvent the modern suit with features like the cut-off lapel base which should appeal to confident man with a strong sense of personal style in any genre.
