Things got way personal with Lou Dalton’s Fall 2019 Menswear collection. Her designs this season were inspired and modeled by the men who helped get to where she is now, from photographer Andreas Larsson to former Topman design director and her mentor, Gordon Richardson. What resulted from such an intimate design process is a cozy collection that had a lot of desirable pieces. An orange tracksuit in burnt orange made entirely out of fleece had a sophistication to it that was easy but still had an element of fun to it. Perhaps the most interesting part about the line was the variety of textiles in the mix, from the comfiest of wools and cashmeres to the sturdier leathers and cottons. Graphics-wise, it was all about the stripes, be it tiny and psychedelic on a knit sweater or big and bright on a rugby-style shirt. Every man can have something for him in this collection, which just goes to show that Lou Dalton has mastered, among everything else, desirability that all people can enjoy!
