Behind the scenes at E.Tautz Autumn/Winter 2012. Showing in the impressive, slightly eerie surrounds of the Freemason’s Hall in Covent Garden (headquarters of the United Grand Lodge of England), Patrick Grant hits the spot once again with his classic tailoring of the Savile Row variety. Inspired by Richard Serra’s imposing sculptures and the U.K Climate, he tells us;

“British clothmakers have a way of creating cloths of a substance that few can match, because our weather required them to do so. Serra’s drawings somehow called to mind these heavy British cloths: Cavalry Twill, Melton, Barathea. The cloths worn by our soldiers on parade, on the sort of day we get in London when the rain teams down relentlessly, the surface of their dense dark cloaks sodden and seeming to suck in all light.”
