Ted Baker SS2015 ‘Pinch Me’….. Not is all as it seams…. Escape into Ted’s is the inspiration for this season menswear and womenswear collections. This ia a fanciful selection that bursts into life with flashes of bold print, strong textured fabrics and colours so vivid they may just be a pigment of your imagination.
The menswear collection is what daydreams are made of; a paradise of striking colour blocks and bold hues that capture the imagination. The season’s smart-yet-stylish look is a fantasy of relaxed layers, casual knitwear and refined, formal pieces, while a head-turning colour palette keeps you chasing rainbows.
Ted showcases his true colours with his signature prints in camouflage and leopard, digitally printed onto accessories and footwear, while bold and brilliant zebra and tropical motifs lead you to far-flung destinations.
Always a man of mystery, Ted’s head-to-toe tones of creamy mints, striking peach and pastel pinks create colourful illusions, while oversized geos, contrast spots and micro florals play on perspective. Seeing is believing, after all. So get lost with Ted this season and let your imagination run away with you…you’ll soon realise that all is not as it seams.
Ted’s womenswear collection abounds with a palette of paint pot tones splashed on clothing and accessories. Punchy pinks, pretty pastels and blink-and-you’ll-miss-it nudes illuminate floral motifs and modern graphic prints.
Ted captures the imagination with the colour-filled elegance of the Cascading Floral and Mirrored Tropics prints, while Distinguished Rose and Linear Nouveau build castles in the air with a nostalgic feel and romantic flights of fancy. Fantasy meets reality with Ted’s take on sports luxe, complete with metal hardwear, sequins and neoprene.
Inky shades of navy and black are highlighted with pops of chartreuse, cobalt and orange that ensure a double take wherever you may wander.
Already renowned for its traditional fabrications yet unconventional style, Ted’s fishing-inspired Tight Lines collection embraces his many eccentricities this season, and features brighter tones with shades of red, royal blue, orange and coral. A bold overcheck khaki blazer and royal blue linen check blazer feature orange, ecru and rose highlights, worn with contrasting waistcoats and tonic cotton chinos. Pocket squares and ties in checks and geo
prints provide further interest, whilst rising trout and stag print linings and horn burnished buttons add a vintage feel.
Full of unbridled indulgence, Ted’s SS2015 Langley collection creates a soft focus in a barely there palette of soft peach, nude pink and fresh mint alongside sheer fabrics. Tulle and mesh fabrics are modernised with armoury style embellishment trims on dresses, whilst textured metallic boucle pieces add grown up allure. Enchanted by the romance of Italy, an Italian Cathedral provides the inspiration for the ‘Florentine’ print which appears on a sleeveless top and skinny cigarette pant. For the perfect finale, take a bow in the show stopping ‘China Blue’ print maxi dress which captures the essence of the Orient.
Ted’s Phormalwear presents a rich and decadent ‘after hours’ collection, with sumptuous suits in tones of midnight blue, purple and silver grey made with the finest Italian cotton. Paisley, geo and spotted print shirts, ties and pocket squares provide modern finishing touches.
Debonair’s exhilarating personality takes on a preppy influence with a cobalt blue suit and grey linen windowpane check suit referencing the collegiate style of Long Island smart resort wear.
Flaunting the bold and outlandish, Ted’s Global collection closes the show with a flamboyant and fearless statement piece: a psychedelic paisley print in a rich red worn with a contrasting geometric shirt.
