Start London unveils luxury fabrics A/W clothing line
Jan '13
Mr. Start’s autumn / winter 2013 collection delivers a firm statement: the brand excels at more than suiting. The signature tailoring is as skilled as ever, though now equaled by developments in fine knitwear, luxury outerwear and coordinating accessories.

This season’s autumnal color palette is applied as two-tone contrast colors, including evergreen, burgundy and camel alongside classic navy and shades of charcoal.

Luxury fabrics are utilized throughout the collection, most evidently in the outerwear. Highlights include a stand out forest green moleskin bomber and camel coat, as well as a silk-wool blend overcoat. The knitwear offering has an understated style; fine gauge roll necks and cardigans featuring subtle texture or color contrasts on the neckline and trim.

Reaffirming last season’s theme of deconstruction, the tailoring for this season again features a relaxed style with a confident silhouette, evident on the soft round shoulders and considered design. Fabrics are well chosen, as autumnal lightweight tweeds are complimented by heavier silk-wool blends for winter.

The accessory offering includes three bag styles – a tote, briefcase and hold all – each colored leather design featuring contrast trims. Two-tone leather gloves compliment the outerwear designs, with bright cashmere and silk scarves adding an Escher-inspired highlight.
