Charlie Casely-Hayford, and the things that make him Swoon

Casely-Hayford‘s clothes are a lesson in how to combine streetwear with formal wear. The father and son designer duo present collections that are a delicious clash of tailoring and streetwear, see their recent collections here, and our images from backstage this season here. They are one of our favourite shows to be backstage at during L:CM, with a relaxed, friendly yet somehow electric vibe. We asked Charlie Casely-Hayford for a few of the things that make him swoon.

The New Remastered Led Zeppelin album

It was the inspiration and soundtrack for our recent SS15 catwalk show and it wakes me up in the morning,

 

Heinreich Dinkelaker Brogues

The shape of the last is a best of Italian and English – Heinreich Dinkelaker brogues are the perfect shoe and will last a lifetime. Each one is handmade.

La Residencia in Mallorca

My favourite place to go post-fashion show where I can re-energise and start thinking about the next season.

 

Blanc eyewear – sunglasses

Highest quality sunglasses around. These Sunglasses are made in Japan in the same factory as Tom Ford, but still remain a quietly kept secret…. and they work perfectly with my suit and boots.

 

Thanks Charlie!
