Perry Ellis did effortlessly thrown together looks under a masterful eye for AW16.
Michael Maccari Says Relax
High necks with loose fits, drooping snoods and untucked layers, the attitude was certainly languid at Perry Ellis. Oversized lurex sweaters snuck out beneath the sleeves of heavy outerwear and shirt tails slid out under woollen jumper trims. Half of the looks were one colour in every shade, like a walking version of those Dulux colour chart strips you get in B&Q – see, so easy you don’t even have to think about clashing and matching, just chuck on everything you own in grey or navy.
Method In The Madness
Ok, so Perry Ellis is hardly avant garde, we know. The brand usually sticks to everyman clothes mixed up with exaggerated daywear details and a few abstract prints, this season was much the same but nothing else was necessary. An impressive rainbow of colours were made to look easy to wear by anybody, from jewel sea tones, your standard winter brown/black/grey trio to vivid techni-colour tab sweaters. Even a brave navy and orange check full coat looked effortless amidst the Perry Ellis ensembles put together by Creative Director, Michael Maccari.
