London Collections Men SS17: E. Tautz
Inspired by Dutch photographer Hans van der Meer, who travelled Europe capturing the most iconic moments of lower league football matches, Patrick Grant exits backstage after his show wearing an ‘IN’ t-shirt; a current theme for us in the UK and Grant's view is evidently clear on the matter.
- E. Tautz over the years has become progressively more relaxed in style, Grant admits to us while we talk to him after the show. The silhouette is much looser than before, he explains, with far less structure and more drape. His designs for SS17 are not a far cry from Grant’s roots at Savile Row bespoke tailors Norton & Sons; the ‘controversial’ short shorts seen today are based on a 1950s military work wear short that Norton & Sons used to make for the British Army in their Cookson & Clegg factory.
