D’URBAN Fall/Winter 2014 Collection

D’URBAN has been forging ahead with expanded collections, technical innovations and forward-thinking design. The progress continues for Fall/Winter 2014 as D’URBAN presents a collection that brings a touch of Baroque to business and casual wear and adds an explorer’s edge to the urban wardrobe.
Modern Folk
The word Baroque evokes a time of ornate art, splendid clothing and an opulent lifestyle. D’URBAN takes Baroque elements and uses them to create a modern folklore through colour, texture and print this season. Adding a dash of Baroque is a subtle yet effective way to update the wardrobe at D’URBAN man. To present the characteristic of modern folk, D’URBAN adds one colourful element on the garments and accessories, such as a shirt, necktie or scarf which created from floral prints, gem-toned checks or wallpaper-inspired patterns. The Baroque elements shows up in the season’s perfect go-to navy and burgundy checked jacket with red lining, paired with contrasting check trousers and causal inner wear on exposing the mood of relaxation. Another prime example is the red brushed-cotton trousers that feature leather trim, clever double pockets, and a floral jacquard lining. D’URBAN also sought out updated versions of classic menswear patterns as found in a slim-cut herringbone jacket with its modern mélange-effect fabric and relaxed look.
Urban Mountaineering
D’URBAN has also updated casual wear this season with a collection that combines mountaineering elements with modern city style. The result is a range of pieces that are as practical as they are smart-looking – with details like earphone clips in outerwear, water repellent fabrics, and detachable pieces that allow you to change your look as the weather and the occasion dictates. For example, a quilted down coat in forest green with knit collar, detachable hood and innovative details like an interior “carry on belt” that lets you wear the jacket like a messenger bag when the weather turns warm. Opting for a three-piece suit in beige, the fine fabric, rich colour and monochromatic look exudes modern masculinity.
To create a theme with lifestyle retaining in the urban city, D’URBAN also specially highlights the outerwear this season, an on-trend camouflage blouson with leather collar and cuffs plus a functional hanger patch design which is inspired by the back patch. Another example is a shawl-collar jacket in dark forest olive green with detachable knit collar and oversized patch pockets.
A hi-tech bonding technique allows a sleeker quilted look and variations in the quilting pattern, such as the inner knitwear layer can be clearly seen the pattern which has been pressed into the outer leather.
Throughout the collection, D’URBAN has employed bold ideas, innovative styling and technical mastery to make this an amazing and truly approachable season for menswear.
