A Summer Stay With DAKS for SS22

The boundaries between seasons are becoming less defined and the world around us is having to adapt even quicker than before. This makes a case for building a perfect capsule that you can wear all year round. This SS collection builds its foundations reflecting and respecting heritage, whilst welcoming the future. It is time for optimism & originality.

Relaxed tailoring, texture and clean lines are the key staples for the collection.The suit can be casual when it features an interesting decoration or pattern, such a big windowpane check or a prominent herringbone. Deconstructed softer tailoring made from cotton or linen, can be styled more formally with smart underdressing.Equally formal suits can be styled with considered casual items, such as a Madras shirtor a knitted T shirt, instead of a shirt & tie.  

One of the key inspirations behind the collections is British Scenery, The British artist David Hockney returned to his home county of Yorkshire, to produce a major collection of work, all depicting the stunning natural landscape, these were shown in a vast collection at the Royal Academy. This collection of artwork has been a rich source of inspiration for colour and prints for this story. 

Inspired by the stunning surroundings of calm escapism that is found in the British staycation. The journey influences these adaptable clothes that feel effortlessly at ease on the British coast or anywhere else in the world.
