William Stone at The Grooming Room
May 28, 2015
The Grooming Room at Century Club is coming to London Collections: Men, and it has just been announced that William Stone will be presenting his Spring/Summer 2016 collection as part of the offering.
‘Emporia’ will be the third collection for William who says, “I wanted to look at Victorian exploration and the clash of industrial and imperial ideologies with the simplicity and beauty of the lands and people they encountered. The clothes they wore were structured and practical: double breasted suits, field jackets, pleats, etc. I have retained that functionality in the collection but more importantly reinterpreted that eccentric English quality.”
William Stone fine-tuned his technical skills at the Savile Row Tailoring Program and the Royal College of Art. His collections take heed of his London upbringing, putting a unique spin on modern British menswear. His work is often viewed as paradoxical – classically crafting suits and then blending them with urban casuals. ‘Emporia’ promises to stay true to his code – a reconciliation of the current with the past.
The Grooming Room will serve as a media hub for all British Fashion Council accredited press, buyers, bloggers, celebrities and VIPs to relax in between shows with free WiFi and complimentary food and drink available as well as treatments including hair and beard styling, eyebrow shaping, facial mapping and head and shoulder massages.
The William Stone presentation will take place on Sunday the 14th June from 3:00pm – 5:00pm, with an after-party in partnership with Candid Magazine at 6:00pm, on Century Club’s exclusive roof terrace.
