Kent & Curwen is distinctly British. The AW17/18 collection, created by Daniel Kearns and British soccer star David Beckham at London Fashion Week Men’s focuses on outerwear. Featuring coats in every shape and style, BDMOTP is particularly drawn to the longer and shearling-lined coats, perfect for a chilly winter. Bomber jackets and blazers are for fall, and the army-green coats layered over blazers and shirts are appropriate for those blustery November days when you just don’t know what to put on.
Their take on the military trend includes long, wool overcoats with gold buttons (if Beckham’s wearing it, we want it) and the aforementioned army green jackets. These take on that vintage feel but are still modern enough to feel relevant. Continuing with outerwear, warm knit scarves and pageboy caps complete many of the looks. There’s also an Ivy League feel to the collection, as one might see a student and Princeton or Yale sporting a button up sweater with a motif pocket or patched blazer.
The pieces are casual yet elegant and could be worn to work, on campus or for a weekend brunch or dinner out on the town. There’s something for every man in this collection, holding true to their English roots but still appealing to an international customer.
