Nicholas Deakins Spring/Summer 2014 Preview

Retro Sports coat by Nicholas Deakins

   Today at The Totality we cast our discerning sartorial eye towards the latest ranges from the heritage brand Nicholas Deakins.

   Since forming in 1991, Nicholas Deakins have consistently introduced a plethora of original and innovative designs to the marketplace; their Spring/Summer collection for 2014 is no exception to this rule.

   Taking inspiration from sports-luxe, the brand's seasonal ranges manage to feel vital and contemporary whilst also casting a nostalgic glance at classic, retro "terrace chic". The result, is a clean, and deceptively simple, line which appears classy and down-to-earth simultaneously.

   Part of the inspiration, apparently and evidently, comes from the up-coming World Cup in Brazil this summer: fooball-casual is a key influence in the lightweight and easy to wear apparel. It is possible, however, to attribute the retro look to tournaments of the past and sporting days gone by. The Leeds based brand have clearly taken inspiration from the stands of Elland Road of yesteryear to sculpt their look.



   Deakins Spring/Summer collection boasts a refined
focus on premium materials such as suede, leather and nylon across a number of new silhouettes in their impressive footwear ranges.

   The collection also features a number of low-profile styles, including new variations on traditional hand stitched moccasins and espadrilles with high tech updates.

   For relatively conservative dressers such as myself, Deakins' Spring/Summer ranges are something of a God-send. In the hotter months of summer, one in which many men resort to shirtless-ness and rolled up tracksuit trousers, garments such as these allow the wearer to remain fresh and in style at the same time. The versatile collection also means that it is possible to wear the same compositions throughout the course of a summer's day - practical and on trend simultaneously. Like David Batty, another thing for Leeds to be proud of.
