Crombie Autumn/Winter 2013 Collection
For Autumn/Winter ’13 Crombie continues the journey in understated luxury to provide today’s modern man with a complete range of winter pieces to ensure he is suitably equipped to experience all of life’s adventures with effortless elegance and impeccable style. Inspiration derives from the abstract work of British artist Ben Nichols, his use of deep earth tones and flawless attention to detail is echoed throughout the range.
Much anticipated and expertly crafted, the range of slim fit coats leads the season. New additions include a youthful and modern take on the iconic ‘British Warm’ re-created in pure wool based on fabric from the Crombie archive, an update of the iconic Retro coat in deeply opulent chocolate brown herringbone cashmere and a inky black lightweight waterproof raincoat with monochrome dogstooth interior that strikes a powerful note.
Other key pieces include pure cashmere blazers, a navy Reefer jacket with removable fox fur collar, Chunky Scottish cable knits, a sophisticated wool and cashmere monochrome dogstooth suit, a moss green cashmere storm-proof parka and pindot wool jeans. Fine shirts, pure silk paisley ties and lightweight silk scarves perfectly complement this true British style.
The colour palette depicts old English allure with deep Bordeaux red, chocolate brown, ultramarine navy and moss green offset against modern shades of monochrome with highlights of cognac, soft felt grey, old gold and natural mid-tones. Checks are also prominently featured throughout the range in the fabric choices which draws from the re-introduction of the Crombie house check.
