LC:M, AW13: in the wings with Patrick Grant of E.Tautz
For many of London’s menswear designers, Christmas 2012 will be remembered more for a lot of hard work than traditional festive over-indulgence. In a festive tribute to their renewed efforts today, I’m picking up where I left off as well, with my series of tasters for LC:M, AW13.
Today’s post features a brief chat with Patrick Grant, of E.Tautz, always one of the most anticipated London menswear shows.
PG: Crofters cottages, not hanging out your washing on a Sunday, bad sixties wallpaper, rusty old cars.
PG: Having looked at the drawings and toiles for so long I’ve had moments where I’ve thought, this maybe needs something new, but so far I’ve managed to resist the urge to tinker. And now that the actual clothes are coming in, I’ve got that surge of excitement that you always get when you start to put the looks and the show together.
PG: No, we’ll use the same format, same little chat, but I think the clothes are strong and I’m happy to have a blank canvas and a bigger space to show them in.
PG: The outerwear is all nearly in now and my favourite for sure will be one of the coats. No details, need to wait for the show.
