Chester Barrie, a modern Savile Row British menswear brand, showcased their AW17 collection at Smith & Wollensky. Most of the collection was modelled on mannequins, with a few male models at one end of the room casually showcasing the beautifully tailored designs. Canapés and drinks circled the room, whilst a small orchestra played in the corner, complementing the atmosphere effortlessly.

If you're looking for a brand that has experience in ready-to-wear tailoring, Chester Barrie is the place to go. Founded in 1935 by Simon Ackerman, Chester Barrie took up their place on London’s Savile Row just two years later in 1937 and has been there ever since.

Classic tailoring, beautiful fabrics and fine attention to detail, are some of the traits that attract people to this brand. These traits are all seen in this collection from the tartan prints to the velvet detailing. Each piece had touches of uniqueness while holding onto the high quality design the brand is famous for.
