For the Fall 2019 Menswear show of E. Tautz, Patrick Grant was inspired by the geometric edifices that decorate Ibirapuera Park in Sao Paulo, Brazil. These structures were designed by Oscar Niemeyer, one of the most prominent architects of his time. Yet the clothes themselves aren’t as geometric and structured as one might expect. In fact, they were the complete opposite—a slouchiness that’s entirely easy and nonchalant. The first look alone, that of a pecan brown monochrome outfit with round sleeves and dropped-waisted pants, looked so relaxing that it was borderline leisurewear. But despite the disconnect between the references and the clothes, this was still a sublime collection of stark colors, easy silhouettes, and clothes that men today would want to wear. It’s easy to imagine them in the striped sweaters, softly tailored outerwear, and the boatload of denim pieces as they go about their business on the street. The world would certainly look a lot more colorful when this E. Tautz collection hits the stores come fall!
