Hardy Amies SS11

London Fashion Week wrapped up yesterday after devoting its last day to menswear. I was lucky enough to be invited to a couple of presentations and catwalk shows but I have to admit it was the Hardy Amies invite that I was most excited about. He is such a staple of British fashion, a legend. The presentation was hosted by GQ at Simpson's-in-the-Strand. Orange juice, tea and scrambled eggs and bacon on toast accompanied the very stylish crowd that rotated around the fictitious park that took the centre of the room. The collection was extremely classic yet strikingly contemporary. Suits, in linen, wool and blends, went back to basics with single-breasted one and three buttons in summer-appropriate classic hues. I personally loved the Prince of Wales checked trench coat and suit, the very modern sunglasses and the green knitted tie.
