The Spring/Summer18 collection of Pence 1979 designed by Dora Zecchin tells us about two distant “worlds” which incorporate style but also emotions; the collection is dedicated to travelling men in search for new destinations and trends.
The British style world includes a series of patterns enriched with classical checks, Prince of Wales fabrics, or the regimental stripes. The colourful South-Central America world gives birth to prints and embroideries recalling those used in coffee, cacao and hemp sacks – an element typical of those countries.
The character of the entire Pence 1979’s Collection is strengthened by elegant volumes and soft forms, without compromising that touch of sophisticated allure which is always present in the brand.
The chinos stand out for their vintage and workwear style, while the tailor’s inspiration trousers offer soft volumes and a higher waist, recalling the retro style of cottons.
The trousers are combined with light garment-dyed, indigo-dyed and blue Oxford shirts, but also with basic cotton and non-basic viscose cotton t-shirts, up to include the indispensable sweatshirts. T-shirts and sweatshirts mostly present the typical prints of products exported from South-Central America. The look is completed with soft cut jackets, kimono-cut jackets, as well as with the coveted worker’s style denim, gabardine and yarn-dyed cotton jackets.
