A 360-degree tour of the shows, from the invitations to backstage reports, grooming trends and venue highlights
Mood board: Without a dress shirt or tie in the collection, spring/summer 2016 at Gieves & Hawkes was a decidedly sporty affair. Chief creative officer Jason Basmajian presented a series of tailored essentials from a single breasted, shawl collar silk evening blazer, cool fine wool shorts, to classic Henley knit in soft cotton cashmere. Even on holiday, the Gieves look is more considered than carefree.Finishing touches: In stores March 2016 is the Orlebar Brown and Gieves & Hawkes capsule collection of tailored ready-to-wear staples. The range takes inspiration from Scottish explorer David Livingstone whose meticulous hand-drawn maps are printed over a range of shorts and shirts in a brisk palette of seafaring colours.Sound bite: 'This collection has really been about blurring the line between tailoring and sportswear,' explains Basmajian. 'Guys are wearing trainers and t-shirts with their suits, they are wearing polo shirts with blazers but he is still the same guy with the beautiful, three-piece flannel suit, gold cufflinks and silk tie in his wardrobe. He wants elevated, considered, luxurious clothes so that he can dress down at the weekend without looking sloppy.'
