Like father, like son. In the Casely-Hayford Spring/Summer 2016 offering, there is something that emphasizes on the sophisticated and the modern of London Collections: Men. The British menswear house, led by father and son Joe and Charlie Casely-Hayford, provides a collection from two generations, a collection from two designers of talent.
Half-English and half-Ghanaian, Joe and Charlie Casely-Hayford’s dual identities turn into a dual inspiration for their offering, with both geometric and asymmetric patterns, but also bright, vivid colors and an association of tailored, loose outfits.
In an attempt to combine effortless cool sporty jackets and motorcycle backgrounds, Casely-Hayford’s Spring/Summer 2016 collection defines a new genre for London’s men. The superposition of layers, as well as the stress on subtle accessories – smoke-tinted pairs of glasses, black lookalike leather clogs or a black carrier bag – make a point of portraying the shape of Londoner’s wardrobe for the Spring/Summer 2016 season.
