Welcome to model country!!!
Ted’s A/W11 collections are steeped in heritage, colour and texture. Naturally, the womenswear collection showcases a new breed of key prints: bold orchid and wild blossom bloom over dresses, tops and accessories, chandeliers add vintage glamour, whilst the woodland fairy print brings a whimsical touch to the season. Drawing upon the colours of the countryside, winter blacks, charcoals and navy are softened with autumnal rose, berry and camel tones, whilst fierce flashes of fuschia, orange and petrol blue create the dramatic palette that’s wild at heart.
A nostalgic nod to 50s glamour sees graceful silhouettes created by fuller circular skirts celebrating the female figure in all its glory. Whereas in contrast, more modern and minimal shapes emerge through beautifully cut tailored suits, jumpsuits and wide-leg trousers. Delicate lace, ruffle and pleat details on separates, juxtaposed with heavier leather and wool on outerwear and knits highlight the importance of texture and layering this season. With slick metal hardware detailing on leather bags, gloves and outerwear adding an edge to the final look.
Ted’s menswear collection treads a more rugged path for A/W11. Tweed, corduroy and twill are all in their element while fur, leather and quilting branch out to provide further textural highlights. Cable knit detailing meanwhile, appearing on both jumpers and accessories, is the natural selection for modern gents this season. On frostier days outerwear offers a more adventurous feel. A quilted jacket in racing green, leather aviator with shearling collar and longline revere collar wool coat sit perfectly with heavier cotton chinos in earthy shades of stone, chocolate, olive and plum.
All the while trapper hats in melton wool and oilskin, tweed flat caps and chunky cable knit scarves look the part, whatever the weather. As the nights draw in, long sleeve polos featuring shirting contrasts come to the fore whilst shirts with micro collars and narrow plackets create a sharper look in colder temperatures. Styled with tweed blazers and coated denims, this is deconstructed tailoring that’s always in season.
