The Teacake Tuesday team is in recovery after a busy few weeks working to stage the launch of Timothy Everest's latest collaborative collection which launched this week as part of the London Collections: Men fashion weekend. Teaming up with luxury brand by revered tattoo artist Horiyoshi III, the collection was supported by none other than the rather fabulous Tilda Swinton, who agreed to feature in a short fifteen minute film which explored (through exaggerated movements) some of the shapes a bespoke client will undergo when having a fitting. Timothy crafted a stunning two piece suit for Tilda to wear to the launch event, made from white cashmere and silk it was a low slung single breasted jacket with tapered pleats. Vogue.com voted for the outfit on their 'best dressed' list this week also.
Brining together the idea of two bespoke worlds, that of tailoring and tattooing Timothy created a unique collection brining pattern and cut together, inspired by some of Horiyoshi III's symbolic figure, animal and floral motifs. Hero items from the collection featured a cobalt blue towncoat and reversible bomber jacket. Again our thanks to M.A.C for an amazing night of make up and bodypainting, and to key sponsors Herbert Hall, Dormeuil, Morgan Cars, and Jaguar.
