The hues marching down the runway at James Long were a little bleak to say the least. However, not all is bad when you take a closer look. Mustard Yellow, old Dusty Pink, Dark & Milk Chocolate and Pewter Grey were the prominent shades taking over Long’s fall / winter 2013 collection. Knitwear seems to be as big as outerwear; 3D textured sweatshirts, hoodies and pull-overs were the pieces that caught the most attention. We had printed knitwear in doll heads, flamingos and abstract prints, paired with brocade-effect and oil-slick look trousers.
Even though at an initial glance the styling looked a little ‘bad taste’ it was an oxymoron of joyful mish-mash. Abstract printed shirts under contrast fabric gillets, and knit-lined coats were two looks that I think all men might be running towards in floods. Checks, over-sized dog tooth prints and a one of a kind paint print set the scene for ‘layering as artwork’. It is always nice to be able to applaud a man who gives you food for thought… That’s why James Long gets a loud standing ovation from me.
