Canada's East Coast Meets Traditional Englishmen

Canada’s Labrador deadliest catch sea captains have just found themselves inspiring the latest season of fashion. Canadian fashion designer Paul Davis crosses over the refinement of traditional English tailoring with another side of Canadiana-culture which we often forget in his latest Fall 2015 collection.
“As the residents of Trinity Bay, Newfoundland gazed-out at the approaching ship, they didn't realise it would bring with it one of the greatest achievements in modern history. When the transatlantic cable was first hooked-up to the small fishing community, suddenly the entire continent could communicate with Europe. It was a new notion of speed and time that nobody had known before.
The Paul Davis Fall 2015 Collection takes its inspiration from this rugged, far-flung place on the Atlantic coast and ignites it with the traditional styles from across the water. Creating a perfect storm of hybrid pieces and silhouettes, it is a down-to-earth yet sophisticated take on modern menswear.
Water, rubber and copper themes run throughout the collection, from ripple-effect cashmere overcoats to the label's signature moiré accents. Woolen mariner's coats hang next to polymerized parkas and wet-look raincoats. An iceberg-coloured suit highlights the collection while fun colour splashes contrast with the dark indigo, forest and burgundy palette.”
