SS19: Ayam Cemani
For the 2019 Spring/Summer collection, A Kind of Guise head to Indonesia to draw inspiration from the nation’s long-admired pattern and textile making traditions.
The ‘Ayam Cemani’ range features an extensive array of finely-crafted future classics made from breezy silks, breathable cottons and other aestival fabrics. Being a summer collection, it’s been geared for hitting the road and spending a little time in the sun with summery, batik-inspired silk beach shirts. These join ruggedly constructed multi-pocket shirts, lightweight jackets made from a heat-sensitive thermochromatic fabric that transform its colour in the heat, wild west inspired embroidered shirting featuring Indonesian motifs and a selection of relaxed superfine merino trousers. Another highlight is the trio of jackets made out of a water-repellent, lightweight and crisp fabric that has been developed in corporation with a traditional Korean mill.
This bold and sunny range continues the A Kind of Guise tradition of building strong, destination-centric collections that respectfully interpret a region’s rich sartorial heritage with the brand’s signature, modern approach to tailoring.
