RAKE AW13

ESIGNER NAME: Clive Darby

BACKGROUND:
 Clive hails from Duffield, Belper in the Midlands. He worked with Limeys, Browns, Kilgour and on Savile Row before taking on his role at RAKE.

SIGNATURES: “The RAKE look is captured in the Travel Blazer and Swiss Piquet Shirts.”

TRADEMARK PIECE:
 “The Travel Mac and 1 show 1 Double Breasted Unstructured Jacket.”

IDEAL CLIENT:
 “Someone who is open and responsive to suggestions and not scared to take a little risk.”

ON BRITISH MENSWEAR:
 “The tailoring heritage makes British menswear unique. In the last 5 years, British menswear has had to step up to the mark and realise that charm only goes so far; what is needed is commercial products that sell and are delivered on time.”

THE COLLECTION: “We have a number of different layers going on but a good start would be Gunther Sachs in his Penthouse Apartment in St Moritz meets David Niven’s Pink Panther. From the Cresta Run to Après Ski.”

About thematerialsleuth

I work in the digital industry and this blog is an outlet for things that I admire whether its design, interior, graphic, fashion, styling, industrial, architecture, art, illustration, music or other bloggers etc. I constantly search for different artists who do not grab the media attention or have high profiles brand ambassadors pushing their products.
