Oliver Spencer Menswear Spring/Summer 2013

One of the most prominent British menswear designers of his generation, Oliver Spencer (previously reviewed by The Style Examiner HERE and HERE) unveiled what was undoubtedly one his most accomplished collections in recent years during the inaugural London Men’s Fashion Week for Spring/Summer 2013. Shown on the fourth floor of an abandoned building in central London that used to house the sorting office for Royal Mail, Spencer filled a room with an attentive audience of journalists, buyers and a number of celebrities from the sports and entertainment arenas.

The collection was inspired by the work of the twentieth century British painter Ben Nicholson and Russian Modernist and Constructivist art in the way that it layered geometric designs and shapes in blocks of colour and tailoring. Muted colours typical of Nicholson’s paintings and the work of Russian graphic designers and artists of the early twentieth century such as grey and taupe coexisted with brighter variations and new shapes were introduced to the delight of viewers.
