Satyenkumar painted the catwalk in a wash of watercolour-esque tones and sheer fabrics this morning with a collection that epitomised clean, cool summer dressing for the boys.

The Central saint Martins graduate has polished his signature sharp tailoring, working in light as air Swiss Voile and Tulle for crisp shirts, paired with perfectly cut twill trousers in denim inspired indigo. Just the ticket for the times when jeans are too casual and suit trousers too formal.

The collection entitled “Reflection through a lens” took inspiration from kaleidoscopic refractions, culminating in a subtle digital print that was used to great effect in particular on lightweight outerwear.

Contrasting textured panels of silk and satin added interest, as did pops of azure, primary yellow, lipstick pink and coral - in their most wearable forms when paired with muted pastels of dove greys and soft lavender.

Styled with super-shiny slicked hair and bold rectangular sunnies, Sayenkumar’s collection will appeal to modern dandies with a predisposition towards the luxurious and the mildly eccentric – they can find the current collection stocked in Oki-ni and Daniel Jenkins.
