A 360-degree tour of the shows, from the invitations to backstage reports, grooming trends and venue highlights
Casely-Hayford is the eponymous brainchild of father and son duo Joe and Charlie, a dapper pair who were churning out twists on contemporary men's tailoring long before the rest of London caught on. For S/S 2015 they used the term 'art intervention' to describe their application of conflicting cultural references in their clothes - with anything from metallic lurex knitwear to Stephen Jones' long-brimmed trucker caps layering a multitude of aesthetic signals in their thoroughly street-smart silhouette. Those signals shifted between squared tailoring in banker stripes to MA-1 bombers extended as coats, with that art intervention materialising in a series of blotchy, mesh aquarelle tees, and Hokusai's waves stamped over a trim blazer. Their fabrics also told a mixed message - dark, dense-looking textiles were in fact woven from light and breathable ramie, technical fibres and 100% British linens.Photography: Jason Lloyd-Evans
