Designer Carlo Brandelli continues to reinterpret the fundamental proportions and forms of Savile Row tailor Kilgour– this season with the Impression Shawl mohair jacket (£3,300). The shawl-shaped reveal turns back on itself where a regular lapel would end, but with the conventional outline of a lapel played out in relief below, cut away from the front panel. It’s an avant-garde idea but a wearable end result. Meanwhile, metallic lamé might sound unexpected from the label’s usually muted palette, but the material is a different animal in Brandelli’s hands. A peak lapel one‑button jacket in bronze wool (£3,000) makes for an elegant statement evening jacket.
