TED BAKER TAKE THE LEAD VIDEO EXCLUSIVE
AUTUMN/WINTER 2014 MENSWEAR AND CAMPAIGN VIDEO EXCLUSIVE
From the Mambo and Tango right through to Fandango, Ted can out-Fred the nimblest Astaire and to celebrate, his Menswear and Womenswear collections are dancing cheek to cheek to create a thrilling display of rhythm and electric blues.
Ted Baker has choreographed a luxurious clothing and accessories collection for AW14. His continued love affair with the 1950s has also created an ultra-feminine look to ensure all ladies become belles of the ball.
It takes two to tango in Argentina but only one to belly dance in Cairo... and so, inspired by a recent boat trip along the Nile and other exotic destinations, Ted’s menswear is full of thrilling precision and rhythmic wit this season.
Alive with jewel tones of burgundy, teal, emerald green and vibrant orange on knitwear, jersey and chinos, the collection also features exciting, contemporary textures – including enlarged Birds Eye and Royal Oxford knits.
Fresh detailing and modern finishes add classic touches to a robust collection of prints and jacquards. Colour blocking takes a bow on blazers with contrast lapels, pockets and sleeves, and on knitwear’s bold blocks of aubergine, burnt orange and green.
Renowned for his charming prints, Ted’s geos, dogtooth and paisleys stand out across the collection. Available on everything from pocket squares and ties to jersey and even Ted’s classic brogue, camouflage and leopard prints also provide an easy way to add exotic flair to your outfit.
Inspired by traditional techniques with a modern cut, Ted’s AW14 Phormal collection features stand-out sophisticated metallics of sonic blue and emperor purple in slim, sharp suiting. Windowpane checks in a three-piece suit, worn with a contrast navy waistcoat and all the trimmings of a pocket square and printed tie, will guarantee gents are dressed to the nines.
Overall, Italian fabrications, mother of pearl buttons and 1920s-style cocktail bar linings bring a touch of opulent luxury to the season. Tight Lines injects a dash of colour to fabrications with thicker tweeds in burnt orange and bottle green, and alpaca blend knits in red and dark purple.
With wool and velvet details also appearing on oversized checked blazers and matching waistcoats, it’s a layered look that’s slick and functional. For Global, printed blazers (worn with classic shirting or relaxed knitwear) effortlessly take the lead alongside geo prints with a subtle metallic finish for an almost three-dimensional look.
So let Ted take the lead this AW14 for a strikingly stylish showcase that just goes to prove that when you’re in the spotlight, you’ve got to dance like everybody’s watching.
