NYFW | Bespoken Fall/Winter 2010

You should want your boyfriend to be BESPOKEN. He’ll be the rock and roll runaway of the old Park Avenue set – a mannered bad boy with enough charm to keep anyone’s pants right where he wants them. Potently lazy spurts of tartan and plaid against kisses of classic texture like herringbone and tweed in modern muted tones – bothers James, Sam, and Liam Fayed have it down. The gallery style viewing of the next season’s line was held at Hosfelt Gallery on the first day of New York Fashion Week. Sam, BeSpoken’s creative director, left us these morsels on offering and inspiration: “Basically, for Fall-Winter ’10, we really tried to dress down the BeSpoken line, make it a lot more accessible. [We’re] offering a lot of crop blazers, unstructured jackets…textured fabrics. The color palette is olives, grays, desserts, browns; more muted tones. Kind of that hung over feel – making it more gritty. We had said we’re going to do the whole Savile Row/rock and roll thing. I think that really speaks to the collection. The inspiration, for me, was kind of like a ‘Keith Richards go to a dinner party/Lee Mavers in Milan’ – wearing a suit. [Then] we used a harris tweed – an English fabric from up north with moleskin. So we definitely offer the higher end tailoring product as well as the more dressed down on the front.” Run Tweet That.™
