Shanghai Tang Men’s Autumn Winter 2017
July 12, 2017
The rise of the freelance economy continues to shake up office culture blur dressing for work with dressing for fun. Now, it’s a fashion free for all, as mixing up casual formal and freedom of expression dominate menswear.
This season, we continue to reassess Chinese style through a modern lens, rummaging through the toolkit of classic style and recalibrating for the Instagram generation in a collection of contemporary essentials that give new energy to Chinese forms.
A good jacket or blazer is the hallmark of any sophisticated urban man. Mandarin collar and subtle cloud motif nod to ancient Chinese legend in this season’s right on trend cotton blend pique bomber jacket, minimal enough to be dressed up and quirky enough to make a statement piece.
Outwear hits the right note are paired with one of our new season’s shirts that toy with modern abstract print, as well as, all the mandarin, officer, grandad and tip collar shirts. Together it works as an easy collection of essentials for the modern man with trademark Shanghai Tang style.
Take to the streets in style this season, with a collection that charms and impresses for its minimal, relaxed but sharp looks. The man about town stalks the urban jungle in a range that blend grown up style with easy wearability the charcoal wool mix blazer channels tradition with a bold, allover cloud motif and or the dark navy structured single breasted coat with mandarin collar, smartly tailored with crane embroidery highlighting on one sleeve.
Jackets continue their reign in the urban sophisticate’s wardrobe and the bomber jacket continues with cloud print on dark navy silk for the embodiment of the athleisure look.
The blurring of occasion continues this season as men dress according to their mood and not to a dictated dress code. Dressed down elegance brings intimacy and comfort to the red carpet, picking up on the brocade and embroidery that give a 3D lift to the crane motif, with graphic prints that give a knowingly eccentric edge to smart weekend styling.
Bridging the gap between formalwear and smart casual are the black wool tuxedo jacket with a satin trim and officer collar and our signature black velvet blazer, equally stylish with tuxedo trousers or jeans.
Weekend styling at any time makes men comfortable in their own skin. In a season of layering, the revisited no tie attitude of mandarin collars allowing men to stand-up, stand-out.
Winter is warmed up with our new navy quilted down vest with a stand-up collar that fastens with a zip and knot buttons is ideal for travelling or weekends, or for sharp, tailored note.
Decadent yet luxurious, our essential merino wool cardigan is the lynchpin, bringing together a bomber jacket’s silhouette with frog buttons in a unique twist on the conventional cardigan.
All are destined to be worn week in, week out, layered over with double collar in contrasting colors. Free of restraints, judgements and expectations.
