It was new season, new Head of Design over at Hardy Amies for the autumn/winter 2016 collection. After three years at the brand, Darren Barrowcliff took the reins after former Creative Director Mehmet Ali departed after successfully reinvigorating Hardy Amies, making it one of London’s menswear stars. Barrowcliff’s approach continued the brand’s direction under Ali – functional pieces with simple, clean lines. The astutely edited collection was polished and refined collection of wearable, well-tailored pieces in neutral shades. A great debut by Barrowcliff, quietly confident.
