In the context of current social and cultural turbulence, the Louis W. Fall-Winter 2015 collection is The Comfort Zone, taking solace in tradition and convention. Referencing the film Straw Dogs by Sam Peckinpah, the collection is inspired by traditional British menswear such as hunting jackets, heavy corduroy and sweaters. The traditional apparel, and the sense of nostalgia and idealism that come with it, are transformed into items of luxury. For instance, the Sullivan parka is quilted in cotton satin with a corduroy collar, and the Neal bomber is a graphic contrast shearling bomber. Another nod to a classic jacket style is the Owen aviator style bomber with a shearling collar. The colour palette of the collection is classic and concise, consisting of dark green, tobacco and off white. Knitwear is new to the Louis W. collection this season, comprising of two cashmere and wool knit sweaters, one with faux leather patch shoulders. The collection was shot in Pimlico, a preserved, traditional British neighbourhood. The timeless and architectural columns reflect the graphic classicism of the collection.
