At Foxhall we’re quite partial to Navy blue. A quick glance through any of our Lookbooks would confirm as much. If there’s one colour that’s a default choice in design and range planning discussions it’s Navy.
In the words of our Head of Design Domingo Rodriguez as he discusses our upcoming AW15 Collection: “Navy continues as our signature colour across the new Collection – including as a new Softshell colour and in knitwear, shirting, trousers and accessories – it may sound a bit monotonous but when you combine different fabrics and textures in Navy you can create a very sophisticated look that has a lot of interest.”
As well as featuring heavily in apparel, Navy has also joined the traditional menswear accessory staples Black and Brown – we’re now seeing Navy as a major player in wallets, belts and footwear.
What’s interesting is that Navy seems to have risen at the expense of Black, seeming now to be, in a very much-overused term, ‘the new black’. Over the three winter seasons since Foxhall launched in AW12, black has features less in the Collection.
Domingo offers the following by way o f explanation: “Navy feels a bit warmer and easier, it feels a bit more sophisticated after black became a bit over-exposed. Black will be back, of course, but for now Navy feels right.”
Foxhall pieces in Navy: Cade Fitted Cotton T, Turing Jersey Trouser, Stowe Urban Chino, Rampling Urban Brogue, Blake Tailored Casual Shirt, Searling Technical Blazer, Rudge Selvedge Denim.
