Joseph Abboud Fall 2016 Runway Show

| March 4, 2016 | 1 Comment

Joseph Abboud’s Fall / Winter 2016 collection is a tribute to America’s rich sartorial heritage that intricately mingles the tradition of fine tailoring with irreverence, intelligence, and innovation, reminiscent of 1960’s Savile Row and the peacock revolution that took the United States by storm.

Luxurious fabrics, finely crafted bespoke details, bold patterns, and a rich palette of grey, chocolate, rust, olive, stormy blue, and ebony make up the collection. Placing a focus on military details, like subtly upturned cuffs, pieced lapels, and vintage buttons, this dynamic collection boasts a myriad of carefully selected textiles. Washed velvets and cashmeres from Biella, distressed wool prints dyed in true  ancient madder shades from Como and authentic Harris Tweeds from Scotland, come to life in suits and separates that feature our new signature Traced Fit.

This creative approach to tailoring caresses the male physique while still allowing for freedom and fluidity with broader shoulders, a fitted waist, and a flared coat, all of which are reminiscent of ’60s silhouettes, but exudes a fresh new attitude for 2016.
