D’URBAN Fall/Winter 2015 Collection – Relaxed Elegance

D’URBAN Fall/Winter 2015 Collection
Relaxed Elegance

This season, D’URBAN presents a collection made for modern dress codes and an on-the-move lifestyle where the elegance of formal suits meets the relaxed attitude of casual wear. Through rich colors, bold patterns, luxurious textures, and high-function details, D’URBAN Fall/Winter 2015 represents a new approach to menswear.

Autumn’s palette of tan, dark brown, purple, navy blue and burgundy leads to a winter of tonal grays, black and white – all perfect for this season’s modern look.

Elegance with a modern perspective
For Fall/Winter 2015, D’URBAN employs luxurious fabrics, rich colors, and classic patterns akin to those seen in the film “Grand Budapest Hotel”. The look harkens to a time of civilized social interaction, prestigious settings and refined manners.

The patterns are macro versions of menswear classics such as herringbone, houndstooth, Prince of Wales check, and bird’s eye check. Look no further than the D’URBAN suit in navy blue houndstooth, with modern details like its large-scale print, soft shoulder construction, patch pockets and vintage-look buttons. Or, opt for the houndstooth jacket on its own – a perfect mix-and-match piece for autumn layering.

The relaxed refinement theme continues throughout the outerwear collection: A new hybrid blouson features elegant suiting details such as its jacket-style lapel, button closures, and chest pocket. It is also evident in a remarkable flannel blouson with jacquard sleeves – an original fusion of materials. Likewise, this season’s must-have leather blouson brings together rich fabrication with impeccable detailing – in this casem butter-soft leather and a clean, minimalist silhouette.

D’URBAN’s casual pieces also reflect a dedication to refinement. A cardigan is no simple sweater when it showcases a variety of knitting techniques and a sophisticated mélange effect. Similarly, a quilted jacket features the silhouette of a classic suit jacket along with this season’s hot menswear pattern and a very modern “puffed” look.

For this season’s suits, the cut is slim and the fabrication is new. A first for D’URBAN, the corduroy suit brings together a quintessentially causal fabric with a classic two-piece silhouette. The result is a model of modern business-casual dressing.

Casual with a retro edge
As the cold weather settles in, style heats up with more merging of refinement and relaxation. The season’s outwear star is a casual quilted caban, which creates a swaggering silhouette when worn over a suit. In charcoal gray mélange-effect wool, the caban cleverly fuses a traditional menswear fabric with sporty styling and details such as gunmetal-finish hardware, a detachable hood, mesh lining, and performance sportswear trim.

Prints come up again in unexpected places like a dark navy blouson crafted from a luxurious houndstooth jacquard. The unique weave adds texture and a dash of daring to a simple silhouette. The pattern also features in D’URBAN’s houndstooth-embossed leather biker blouson, available in autumn’s hottest hues: deep burgundy and dark navy.

Elsewhere, a flannel blouson with jacquard-jersey sleeves and sporty three-needle topstitching offers an exciting juxtaposition between knitwear, sportswear and a casual jacket. Likewise, a simple flannel jacket is the perfect piece for transitioning between business and casual – pair it with slim trousers in a windowpane check, a classic pullover and a gem-toned scarf to capture the look of the season.

Always popular, shearling is back, too. This year, D’URBAN introduces for the first time a sumptuous ranch coat, made from double-faced sheepskin and available in dark navy blue or earthy beige. Shearling also returns in a shorter blouson-style jacket, which has a minimalist silhouette designed to showcase the luxurious materials.
