Avant-garde New York label William Watson is stirring up menswear with its angular reinterpretations of classic sartorial elements. Shirt collars, trouser knees and blazer elbows get a faceted convex makeover.
Juxtaposing the severity of these sharp lines and the collection's dark color palette, bright psychedelic or ethnic print linings add a dose of whimsy. Tailoring techniques generally reserved for woven formalwear (such as the center back pleat) update standout sweatshirt silhouettes. Perfect for FW12 editorials, this collection is key to building the William Watson brand.
