Debuted in London back in January, Scottish designer Charles Jeffrey’s FW19 line emerged as a highlight for its neat tailoring and bold knitwear referencing 1930s Berlin (for the uninitiated, the Charles Jeffrey LOVERBOY brand began life as a queer club night), contrasted with nods to Peter Pan and Where the Wild Things Are.
Jeffrey has emerged into the fashion spotlight for his emotionally-charged menswear which is both raw and subversive. The Central Saint Martins graduate was selected as Emerging Menswear Designer of the Year just one year after his brand was founded, in 2017, when he was also nominated for an LVMH Prize.
Now, days after his experimental SS20 show which took place in the British Library and nodded to classical works of literature, FW19 has landed at contemporary fashion go-to SSENSE.
Unsurprisingly, many of the pieces fast found their way onto our wishlist, and here we’re sharing a selection of styles that really stand out from the line. A particular highlight is the line’s maximalist art print, which can be seen on a denim jacket and jeans combo, plus a paneled silk shirt. We’re also very much here for Jeffrey’s homage to his home country on a beautifully tailored blazer, kilt, and “panties” bag.
