QUIET TIME: Tiger of Sweden opted out of the London men’s runways this season and showed the collection by appointment in London. Andreas Gran said he was thinking about what makes the suit relevant today when designing the fall 2017 range, and the answer came in the form of looser silhouettes inspired by British tailoring as well as T-shirts, V-neck sweaters and sneakers.
“Nobody really has a dress code anymore. You don’t really feel that you have something to prove by putting on a suit, you just want to enjoy wearing it,” Gran said. “I was thinking a lot of how I dressed myself in the early Nineties. There were a lot of T-shirts over the shirts, a lot of tracksuit bottoms that we have incorporated into our tailoring, with looser pants with buttons on the side, to combine the Nineties aesthetics with British tailoring.”
There were also double-breasted jackets with sharp shoulders and baggy trousers in a palette of gray, navy, dark green and black-and-white check patterns. Gran said he moved away from last season’s prints and opted for darker colors which add depth to the fabrics.
The sportswear-inspired, Nineties influence also made its way to the accessories; a series of beanies
