Upon first glance, it’s easy to dismiss Oliver Spencer’s Fall 2019 Menswear show as just another stale series of basics slightly elevated to deserve its high price points. But beyond this normcore facade, this collection is actually a great showing of quality sustainable fashions in effortless elegance. Most, if not all of the fabrics and textiles he used to create these sleek silhouettes were organically-made, hence the slight nudge to ski-culture within the theme. But you wouldn’t know it seeing how exceptionally beautiful these forms and textures are. This, for us, is what makes Oliver Spencer‘s latest line such a success. It doesn’t scream its activism to you, it just gently presents a compelling case as to why fashion can and should be more sustainable. His eco-friendly practice led to such looks like that royal blue shimmering velvet ensemble and a tan-colored bathrobe-like coat—both of which looked extremely luxurious. A more youthful evening ensemble is a deep dark emerald tuxedo in luscious velvet beautifully offset by a lighter shade of green on a turtleneck. These numbers and more are both youthful and refined, which allowed Spencer to play on another inclusive idea: age diversity. With such ease, this London-based designer just delivered one of his most responsible and sophisticated collections yet.
