Flared legs, elongated oblique lapels and synthetic fabric choices reflect a look representative of seventies style culture at Tim Soar SS ’11. The use of the industrial material tyvec, (dubbed ‘the wonder material of the seventies’) and shiny polyurethane created a crisp paper effect to white shirts and trouser/top combos. Another key textile was denim, both recycled and new, which when featured on padded patchwork waistcoats added a casual appearance to smart suits.
As part of his SS ’11 collection, Tim Soar presents his ongoing SHE:HIM project, for which he introduces key elements from his high tailored menswear line into womenswear; smart straight-leg trousers and sleeveless suit jackets worn as dresses, all clinched at the waist with a simple denim wrap belt.
