The Les Hommes fall winter 2014 collection is fit for a man on a secret mission. Designers Tom Notte and Bart Vandebosch succeeded in producing a sleek, refined, functional and metropolitan collection.
With the same London city flair we have seen in Les Hommes' past seasons, the Belgian brand's sartorial lines gave classic styles printed with old English herringbone and Prince of Wales plaid, an added edge.
Like we saw at Pitti this past week, some rare materials like alpaca and astrakhan were juxtaposed with leather, adding a touch of depth to a predominantly black and grey collection.
Ankle length slacks and jackets were tailored with fine European sartorial lines, for the sort of man who likes his clothes to fit like a glove.
By contrast, overcoats were a bit oversized, further supporting the espionage feel of the collection.
Chunky maxi scarves that drip to the floor and romantically fastened foulards with exotic bird print gave this collection something to remember it by, while metal accented tie knots thwarted us into the 23rd century.
This line is certainly fit for a secret agent, who never leaves home without black leather gloves.
But like a stealth operative on a secret mission, the collection didn't leave much of an imprint.
