Riopele : British, military workwear and reconstructed tailoring

Riopele image texte news

3 themes are developed for this autumn winter 18/19 season collection:

 

BRITISH

Heritage look sees a resurgence: classic fabrics such as herringbone tweed, Prince of Wales plaids, puppy-tooth, preppy and over-checks take colour inspiration from warm wood rich tones, updated with double fabrics.

Traditional fabrics are reinvigorated with a modern twist.

 

MILITARY WORKWEAR

Utility and functional dressing, inspired by classic military styling combined with streetwear influences.

Compact cottons in olive green and khaki dominate, for an understated daywear aesthetic.

 

RECONSTRUCTED TAILORING

Placing emphasis on the return to sartorial looks, masculine-driven items such as the blazer, trouser suit and wide-leg trousers, played out in open-checks or pinstripe fabrics, in a palette of greys, black and white.
