Father-son team Joe and Charlie Casely-Hayford have been noted for seamlessly taking British sartorialism and fusing it with contemporary influences, as evidenced by their previous collection. However, the duo’s usual blend of exquisitely tailored garments mixed with streetwear takes a different turn for the 2016 fall/winter season. Shown at London Collections: Men, the lineup takes heavy cues from military uniforms and The Beatles’ Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band album. Psychedelic graphics and bold prints are strewn across classic dinner jackets and trousers, while a standout includes a deconstructed Napoleonic Hussar-like uniform draped over a casual sweatshirt. Amidst the runway were denim patchwork jackets, fitted blazers and elongated fishtail parkas in muted hues including olive, magenta and black. To round off the looks, the pieces are paired with chunky creeper shoes from Sperry that add an edge to the overall militaristic vibes.
