Emerging fashion designers: Thom Neal


Just when I thought that styling and shooting menswear was a hard task to pursue because of the lack of mouth watering collections, I stubled across  Thom Neal  'DIE MIE' graduate collection on Tell us fashion.

The striking thing about his collection it's that even if you don't know the concept and brand you can gather immediately its identity: made in England
The first connection that I made was with Sherlock Holmes (that iconic cape!) and Burberry, of course, but
to a closer look  the silhouette, the tailoring and the overall mood of the garments are  relaxed, cool and just with that little twist for a contemporary and comfortable fit.


Manx Tweed, Made in Scotland & England wools, ripstop nylon, rabbit fur panels and sheepskin coats are the trademark of the collection plus earthy, natural and warm colours like mustard, burgundy and shades of green and brown. 
All this elements, mixed and matched, just make me want to wrap up into Thom Neal's outerwear now!








This is Thom's website with the collection, the lookbook and more:

 I did also find this interview that dates to his graduate time in May 2011:
