Oliver Spencer S/S 2019 London Fashion Week Men’s
The designer showcases a springtime collection celebrating the natural world
Scene setting: In May, Oliver Spencer unveiled Reverie – an immersive floral installation in his Berwick Street boutique in London, created in collaboration with the British artist Wolfgang Buttress. The artwork celebrated the beauty of the natural environment and championed sustainability within the fashion industry; a cause Spencer also pioneered for S/S 2019. As part of his show set, the designer teamed up once more with Buttress, creating a large-scale projection with scenes of rolling meadows. As each model strode onto the catwalk, images of lush grasses and colourful flowers were projected onto their clothing.
Mood board: Spencer has always championed environmental and socially responsible practices, and the designer has spent the last hear honing his sustainable credentials even more. For S/S 2019, his collection championed flax-made linen and organic cottons, in organic tones including indigo, ochre, charcoal and mauve. There were checked seersucker suits, polo shirts, double-breasted jackets and boiler suits; well-made, ethical and easy clothes for Spencer’s customer.
Finishing touches: Spencer topped off his looks with necklaces and key chains which resembled delicate strings of daisies. They were a hippy emblem of the environmental ethic behind his collection. §
