A line of gentlemen in black stand striking against the light wood panelling behind. Looking smooth, suave and sophisticated, there's no mistaking the Velsvoir man.
Inside Mayfair's opulent Westbury Hotel, Velsvoir unveil 'Nightfall,' a collection celebrating the rich decadence and beauty of darkness. In this block colour palette, everything looks sleek, sharp and cohesive.
From afar these figures cast a mysterious silhouette, one tall shadow of a man. But up close, the eye is drawn to finer details revealing expert craftsmanship and taste.
There is a strong focus on texture. Fabrics are chosen to harmonise against each other yet create a distinct barrier between pieces. This is achieved through the use of matte and silky finishes.
Knitted polo-necks are worn under tailored blazers in subtle brocade patterns. Slim-fit trousers are styled with dapper monk-strap shoes. However, a contemporary fur lined cape provides a diversion from the traditional gentleman's look.
For this LFWM season, we are also treated to a first from the brand - their debut into nightwear. A full pin-stripe pyjama suit glimmers under the dim lights. A smart dressing gown is styled as a coat over shirt and trousers. And a luxuriously opulent smoking jacket offers something a little fancier.
'Nightfall' is an overall tempting collection, promising a life of extravagance for the wearer.
