In London, Lou Dalton moved from last season’s Scottish oil fields to someplace closer to home. Turning her attention to the army camps of Shropshire, the displaced children of Royal Air Force men and the solace they take in the “engineering structural form of aviation and the freedom of flight,” the designer presented a collection of lived-in, rumpled sportswear replete with signs and symbols of the military. From reversed tailored jackets and graphic tees to hoodies and Bermudas, Spring/Summer 2014 was an exercise in texture, fabric and patina, as much as it was another narrative-driven collection from Dalton. Underscoring the accessories, meanwhile, was this season’s collaboration with Casio G-Shock based on the aviators’ watches of actual Royal Air Force pilots.
