Men’s – Volume Play. Casely Hayford AW17


Joe Casely-Hayford and his son, Charlie, have a reason to celebrate this season. Not only it’s Joe’s 30 years in the fashion industry; autumn-winter 2017 collection is the brand’s second season consisting of both men’s and women’s, but this time the vision of a Casely-Hayford female is much more visible and clearer. It’s a conversation between masculine essentials and abstract femininity – once it’s about an over-size cardigan, once about a transparent polka-dots printed cape. Casely-Hayford, since its very beginnings, focuses on men’s tailoring with a twist. There’s no wonder why the volumes feel experimental, from the trousers’ cut to blazer silhouettes. Hanging threads on women’s coats looked somewhat oriental, while the colourful sneakers were all about contemporary look. Casely-Hayford and its aesthetic can’t be described in a word – the designers prefer to focus on the form and textiles, while playing with cropping and distorting.
