The new journey of Ben Sherman for Spring-Summer 2012 is the destination and arrival, of course yes. From his Fall-Winter 2011/2012 in New York inspired this new season by the Brighton trip to Tokyo.
That, in stylistic terms, results in an eclectic style that combines on one hand the classical and urban design of the London fashion , with the sensitivity and innovative style of the Japanese. Both streams are merged by connecting the east and west by giving fruit looks so innovative and transgressive as these.
To give you an idea: the cardigans so much like Ben Sherman and more if combined with or polo shirt, come together with patterned shorts as far east as paisley ...
... Or madras heaven and earth tones for some occasions, and violets, pinks and blues for those in which you want to contrast on dark brown and blue.
Some of his designs looks are strictly made in England, with the trenches by actors, knit sweaters with geometric designs and skinny jeans but it is true that the color palette is not that we have used in previous collections.
Many shots of color in jackets and shirts, which means spring and looks far more used to the exotic color of Ben Sherman sobriety and rigidity of forms used to submit.
The colors are perfectly blended with each other. The light-colored shorts combined with camel colored dot that is highlighted with oxford style shirts in ivory. Perfect spring outfit is finished off with a bag ligand each and every one of the garments.
How wide that contrast with the tailoring of shirts in the collection, which are usually more on the way to Japan refueling in Brighton of prints that I spend.
Definitively, a very summery and wearable collection with a use of color and prints that we are accustomed Ben Sherman but I do not think that repeat many more times. Full of good parts, the odd wardrobe but above all, ideas for our season looks.
