Oliver Spencer fall 2016 collection was inspired by music and titled “When Rock Rolled With Afrobeat”. Spencer’s inspiration was rock: Ginger Baker, the founder of Cream and drummer for Blind Faith, who wound up immersing himself in the world of Afrobeat. The trademark Oliver Spencer relaxed tailoring weaves through the collection, with eclectic prints covering natural and luxurious fibres and textures such as suede, velvet, wool and corduroy. This is a collection that is more for the common man who isnt a “fashionisto” or a slave to fashion because it doesnt jump out at you. Thus why Spencer used an array of models that include your typical sexy flexy types to gents that are under six feet tall and have more gray in their beard than brown. It is for this reason you are more likely to see pieces from this collection walking down the street than most of the shows we will be covering from London Collections Men.
