WORDS Julian de la Celle
AW17 marks the fourth collection from Jeffrey Rüdes, previous co-founder of J Brand, and with it we see a more classic, yet distinct approach to tailored menswear. Silk shirts played a big part in the collection from black and white stripes to retro patterns paired with black leather trench coats and woolen pea coats. Other standouts included a corduroy trench coat, a dual zipper leather jacket and a purple velvet blazer. Rüdes defines his designs with a feeling of comfort and coolness, while still being unique to the variety of collections this AW17 season.
