Pierre-Henri Mattout Fall 2011 Review
Structured details and youthful silhouettes reigned at the presentation for the Pierre-Henri Mattout Fall/Winter 2011 collection. Taking a cue from his hometown of Saumur, France, Mattout incorporated military and equestrian influences to engineer a collection for the man interested in tailored yet unstuffed cool. Although small and casual, the fashionable affair radiated a vibrant and refined energy.
Fitted riding pants, oversized jackets and flawless button-down shirts and sweaters in rich tones of gray, navy, brown and olive looked impeccable. The collection,a delicious mix of cashmere, wool, cotton, corduroy and even waxed nylon, was elevated by leather piping, aluminum buttons and velcro details.
A red tailored blazer with contrast gray collar paired with a soft gray shirt and slim cream slacks was a stand-out as was a houndstooth suit with black velvet lapels. A navy trench coat with raglan back sleeve and quilted parka further illustrated the form meets function motif.
After the presentation, models mingled and sipped champagne – the very picture of your chicest and most handsome prep school mates all grown up.
