Lou Dalton's "Corsairs"

For Spring 2010 Lou Dalton goes sailing, and we welcome her with open arms. The top male models of the moment (Cole Mohr, Josh Beech) spotted blazers, knitted tops, and khaki bottoms on the runway in the Portico Rooms of Somerset House. But what made this collection special was the modern touch given to them: the jackets were paired with stripe scarves, and belts to give the nautical effect. The tops had crystals that sparkled, and pants looked like they were tailored perfectly.

7th MAN had a few words with the designer, “Napolean’s adventures” she said. “It is an exciting time for menswear today, in London. It is up, and quite important.”

The accessories were key pieces for this collection. Hats were covered in gold, and navy satins.

Suede, and leather shoes from Grenson, and the ruffled metallic corsages here and there giving this quirky and modern collection the final touch.
