Best in Show: E. Tautz
E. Tautz nailed several design elements across the board while repeating patterns and shapes making for very consistent themes and an overall coheseive show. Design elements such as layering of textures, the pairing of patterns and solids, a color story that segued seemlessly into one another, and incorporating extensive detail such as embroidery showed a mastery of skill range and focus by head designer, Patrick Grant. We’ve seen Grant evolve from very traditional Saville Row tailor to a forward thinking designer with traditional Saville Row roots and discipline. We eagerly anticipate how he will tip on the creativity scale more in future seasons.
