Gordon Richardson on the project:
“The brief to design a future classic black trouser has to be one of the most challenging for a men’s wear designer,” said Gordon Richardson, Topman design and product development director. “Each of the hand-picked designers contributing to the Black Trousers project have managed to design a pair that not only reflects their own design aesthetic but challenges the existing Topman one. All immediately desirable, wearable and ultimately collectable.”
Although it’s all – ultimately – rather disappointing I do quite like the Ervell and Back pairs…love for the former could just be related to the superb styling but I’m undecided.
Also, I know they’re striving for that edgy, scene aesthetic which so epitomises Topman’s target market but this unnecessary contortion is beginning to be tiresome.
