Jay Godfrey Fall 2015 Inspiration
September 14, 2015
The Jay Godfrey fall 2015 collection is an homage to the designer’s beginnings with a decidedly subversive takes on tailoring. A deeply rooted love for Savile Row is demonstrated throughout a strong, feminine collection that includes luxurious albeit nonconformist takes on suitings, embellished tweeds, modern ultrasuedes, and metallic accented jerseys. Mood board inspirations look to glamorous references like 1970s YSL, British tailoring mavericks like Tommy Nutter and Ozwald Boateng, and counter culture icons like Sex Pistols manager Malcolm McLaren.
