The models took their places at a bar constructed entirely from paper, on which show-goers were invited to write a message to the British luxury shirt maker, renowned for impeccably made shirts with enduring style.
Recreating the ambiance of one of London’s celebrated cocktail bars Thomas Pink unveiled its London inspired Autumn/Winter 15 Collection at the Institute of Contemporary Arts. This FW 2015 collection is the first to be shown also at Pitti Uomo in Florence and the Premium International Fashion Trade Show in Berlin.
The fashion house imagined a collection that “was quintessentially British in its combination of elegance and extravagance”. Presented against the backdrop of a 30ft ‘long bar’ constructed entirely out of paper, manufactured by James Cropper Paper, each model bartender and punter showcased a different ‘Pink’ look. Guests enjoyed cocktails mixed by Pontoon, made using Hennessy Fine de Cognac and garnished with paper foxes, whilst listening to British classics from The Clash, The Rolling Stones and Pulp.
Fall-Winter 2015-2016 collection was a tribute to famous faces of Sixties’ London and their iconic urban dandy style. Thomas Pink’s signature shirts appeared in raspberry, amber and mustard, while jackets and trousers came in tartan, and silk and tweed evening suits were embellished with a peacock feather print.
