The Modern Gentleman meets Sherlock Holmes

Oozing the sensibilities of Victorian fashion, the modern rendition of Sherlock Holmes by Guy Ritchie offers us tweed suits, heavy coats and brogues, not to mention the moustache (which has become the penultimate hipster facial hair), all of which are effortlessly worn by the always cool Robert Downey Jr and Jude Law throughout the films. And this season’s Autumn/Winter trends see these styles replicated and modernised by the likes of Dior Homme, Kenzo, and the ever-flamboyant Jean-Paul Gaultier.

Dior Homme creative director Kris Van Assche offered us tailored suiting in grey and khaki hidden under large, heavy-set wool coats, finishing off each look with a cap, toning down the sharp tailoring with a sporty aesthetic.

Kenzo replicated this sporty yet tailored look, sending suiting down the runway paired with sneakers and a cap. Shades of grey were again a running theme, however, Kenzo added in some of the flair that have made the fashion house world renowned by incorporating splashes of colour, from maroon to orange, and even prints!

Finally, Gaultier took the silhouettes than embody the Victorian gent and added prints, leather and shearling to take them to an entire other level. Over layering proved to be a constant distraction to the eye, but once each look is broken down, we are left with interesting pieces that can liven up any wardrobe. Tailored wool coats and relaxed trousers dominated the runway, and each look was paired back with a fedora hat. However, move beyond the flamboyance, and Gaultier has presented us with quite an interesting collection.
