Bespoken is pulling inspiration from what they are calling the greatest daily theater in London and New York: the morning commute. This routine requires sophistication, functionality and versatility and that is what’s seen in their fall/winter 2015 collection.
With the use of dark moulin textures, deconstructed boiled wool coats, neoprene jackets and blazers, and mohair sweaters, it is safe to say that the daily commuter won’t have a problem staying warm — especially with the thick fabrics Bespoken has integrated into the collection. A layered look is consistently seen, including turtle neck sweaters, blazers and trench coats.
Zippers were placed for both functionality and accents on multiple pieces including a camel-colored cashmere suit and trench. Bespoken also sought inspiration from the city lights and streets with two long sleeve button downs. A black shirt with white splatter on it and the other, white with black splatter, reflects the lights in these two cities entirely. The collection is paired with Bespoken shoes that add the final touches to each piece.
