Ted Baker has got it right this season with luxurious womenswear clothing and accessories collection for AW14, effortlessly combining vintage-inspired floral prints in a layered and lavish palette of pinks. His love affair with the 1950s has also created an ultra-feminine look to ensure all ladies become belles of the (mirror) ball.
In contrast, sportswear influences up the tempo with an urban, futuristic feel, and this ultra-modern look moves across neoprene sweat shapes, lux joggers and bomber jacket silhouettes. Engineered prints, such as Ted’s Road to Nowhere, are themed around reflected landscapes, and colours pop in electric blues, acid yellows and fresh neon pinks.
He’s not slacking on the mens wear either, nspired 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.
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.
