There are two times of the year popular with invitation-sending and thoughts of, “what will I wear?”. Now that summer has passed, it is time for winter weddings to take centre-stage. While the former may lend itself more to laid-back dress codes and a light-hearted mood, the latter is one where a little more thought must go into dressing smartly and suitably, not only to match the dress code, but also to know that you look the part for the “role” you’ll play on the day itself.
For AW18, we took to the streets of Paris to showcase our sleek and sophisticated tailoring offerings designed and styled to echo the different roles. From father of the bride or groom to the best man to the older and younger guests of the afters, our latest editorial highlights generational dressing for winter occasions.
FATHER OF THE BRIDE/GROOM
The father of the bride or groom is a pivotal part to play on the big day and when it comes to how you dress, in essence it should mirror the wedding party. Sharp, put-together and with a certain fine polish, a two-or three-piece suit is the answer. In line with the darker mode of the season, opt for a navy-blue or grey colour way. Peak lapels and a single-breasted silhouette taps into the tradition of the occasion while the accessories — whether a tie or lapel pin — are prime opportunity to add a hit of colour: burgundy being a beautiful tone for the season.
