This afternoon, we strolled over to St. Martin’s Lane Hotel for an exclusive peek at Philip Start’s Spring/Summer 2012 collection. Start, an Shoreditch based boutique, was founded by wife and husband- Brix Smith Start and husband Philip Start in 2002. Providing men and womens wear, the brand has been a sensational success in the fashion world. It was then in 2008 that Mr Start established his own tailoring line for Start, known as Mr. Start.

Making it loose and light for the summer, the collection consisted of cotton and linen fabrics for a cooler wearing. Keeping the aspect of summer in mind, the overall fit had been approached with less structure than previously, resulting in a softly, tailored look. The jackets ranged from a palette of khaki, indigo and grey, adding a variation of both classic and new colours. Collarless shirts were also thrown in to add to this lightweight themed tailoring.

A fresh and wearable range of luxurious tailoring for the Mr. Starts of the world.
