Perry Ellis’ fall 2011 runway presentation provided the essential elements for any well-dressed man’s wardrobe.
From tailored trousers and blazers suitable for a business engagement to relaxed sweats and nylon jackets fit for the gym.
Perry Ellis’ creative director, John Crocco, channeled the architecture and color of a Connecticut country-house when conceptualizing the collection. His nod to an abode outside of the city, resulted in a soothing cast of olives, pewters, charcoals and camels.
Grandpa cardigans with coordinating wool scarves, shearling toppers, cable-knit coats and quilted bombers obliged as outerwear options. While trousers fabricated in denim, cordurouy, flannel, houndstooth and cashmere played as pants.
Crocco’s refined rustic designs came to life compliments of Bruce Pask, who by day answers as the men’s fashion director at T, The New York Times Style Magazine.
Pask supplemented the staple cuts through layering and the unexpected yet expedient technique of tucking the trousers of nearly every look into chunky wool socks.
