RAJO LAUREL: SPOCK AND SAVILE
Splay those fingers in the Spock Salute and put 'em up. Rajo Laurel's latest collection imagines the Star Trek character as a discerning client on Britain's legendary home of fine suits, Savile Row.
Taking a "vintage" stance on redefining futuristic dressing, Rajo has developed a collection that references the past as much as it does the future. Harnessing traditional English tailoring and taking cues from the costumes of '60s television shows such as Star Trek and Land of the Lost and early '80s sci-fi noir cinema, Spock and Savile is chock-full of both of-the-moment outfits as well as classic ensembles. Sharp suiting is given a rogue feel with leather quilting and piping; day dresses get a '60s treatment with geometric embellishment; sleek bodycons get reworked with luxe beadwork, while sportif silhouettes get a feminine boost from hot peplums, graphic lines, and vibrant colors.
Spock and Savile will be available at House of Laurel starting today, July 16, 2012.
