Menswear Label To Know Chateau Orlando

menswear labels to know Chateau Orlando Luke Edward HallNew fashion and home label, under the creative direction of Luke Edward Hall, Chateau Orlando's first collection is called 'Postcards From The Castle', and consists of a selection of fun knitwear pieces (sweaters, cardigans and sweater vests) that are heavily inspired by Luke's core set of influences - contemporary art, 1980s pop music, folklore, the English countryside. 

Known for an output that extends across art, interior and product design, fashion and writing, Hall presents an optimistic new chapter: introducing itself with a knitwear collection. Chateau Orlando marries equal measures hazy romanticism and vivid storytelling with a bold and playful approach to colour and pattern. The knitwear is made responsibly in the Veneto region of Italy.

Alongside these, Luke has also collaborated with L'Uniform to offer an exclusive capsule of canvas tote bags, backpacks and pouches. 

TheChicGeek says, "Due to his popularity, Luke Edward Hall has done so many collaborations, both home and fashion, it was almost inevitable that an investor - the Milanese Wemanage Group - would come along and suggest starting his own brand.

No doubt named after Virginia Woolf's Orlando, I recently visited the Bloomsbury Group house of Charleston in East Sussex, and you can see how Hall's romantic update of its colourful and romantic look has gained many fans. The Chateau Orlando campaign, shot against the backdrop of a romantic gothic Georgian pile, make for an attractive escape.

Starting with one product and doing it well is the best approach to a new label. Hopefully, it won't be long before we see his discerning eye on other products."

Prices range from €55-€325 and all pieces can be purchased from www.chateauorlando.com

Luke Edward Hall for Gant double breasted corduroy jacket

He has previously done collections/collaborations with John Smedley, Kurt Geiger, Rowing Blazers, Habitat, Anthropologie, Lucy Folk, Richard Ginori, Stubbs & Wootton, and now GANT is added to the list. The man in question is Luke Edward Hall, a modern day Hockney with the eye for colour to match.

When GANT’s current Global Artistic Director, Christopher Bastin, return last year, the brand was due some quirky direction. I’ve always been a fan of what he did at the now defunct GANT Rugger brand.

"This collection takes its inspiration from my home in the English countryside, and how I spend weekends there with friends. From jumpers and tweed coats for stalking through fields to 1970s-inspired velvet suits and silk shirts for candlelit dinners, it’s ruggedly elegant and very English.” says Edward Hall.

Luke Edward Hall for Gant double breasted corduroy jacketHe does the same thing for everybody, but that’s okay, because I like it. It’s the same eclectic rift as Gucci.

The standout piece is this cosy corduroy DB in rich reddy brown with brass buttons. It’s a shame they didn’t include one of Luke Edward Hall’s classical heads as pictured. They could have made it detachable. That aside, this is a classic and lifetime wearable piece.

Just add a pink dahlia!

menswear product of the week casablanca printed jeanWhy should the shirt have all the fun? This is the question the jean is asking this season. A new label on the radar is Casablanca. Designed in Paris and made in Casablanca, it’s a bright and creative contemporary brand bestowed with the rich dual heritage of Casablanca’s French-Moroccan founder, Charaf Tajer. (He was previously associated co-founder of Parisian label Pigalle and is also a collaborator of Mr Virgil Abloh).

His tongue-in-cheek and playful aesthetic, and not so silly prices, makes this a brand to have fun with. This print has something of the sunshine Hockney/Luke Edward Hall vibes about and I love it. Wear these with everything!

#OOTD 125 United Colours Of Chic Geek

Menswear OOTD The Chic Geek Blogger Barena linen shirt slowear jacket polo ralph lauren trousers Falke socks sandalsSomewhere in the depths of rainy Kent, TheChicGeek, was a Lego-like vision of colour.

When we think of bold colours we often get sidetracked by prints and pattens. Plain primaries, like these, should be looked at like children's building blocks, all adding up to a balanced whole. Don't be frightened by bold trousers, because, when they're balanced, like here with other just as strong colours, they don't feel as bright and daring. It says confidence and references masters of colour like David Hockney and Luke Edward Hall.
