Velsvoir are pleased to announce the ‘Nightfall’ collection for London Fashion Week: Men’s AW17. This season sees Velsvoir venture into the darkness with an all-black collection, drawing inspiration from the beauty and decadence of the night, with particular attention to strong textures forming a bold silhouette for the Velsvoir man.
This collection also reveals the new Velsvoir nightwear range, including the smoking jacket, dressing gown and pyjama suit.
The Westbury Hotel provides the luxurious setting for the live presentation this season, bringing elements of great design and a perfect lifestyle backdrop for the gentleman.
The presentation was a high energy affair, the room was electric with models painted with metallic silver contrasted with sharp slick styling from Zak Timol and a slightly more rugged contrast with the hair and grooming by styled by Louis Haharaj and head of grooming Danny Defreitas. Earthboogie provided the soundtrack to the collection.

“The conceptual narrative for this seasons Velsvoir presentation was all about a futuristic take on fashion as we know it today. With the textured and all black collection, I wanted to create something that complimented with statement by focussing on a structure on the face. A liquid silver metallic was to bring focus to the jawline, brow line and centre face which encapsulated a masculine, metallic & futuristic finish. In honour to this we went with a teddy boy, wet look feel through the hair to merge past and present and create the ultimate modern day man, who is not only individualistic but wears style in true confidence. ”

“Taking inspiration from the dark nature of the clothes and application of the make-up we decided to merge both Goth and punk hairstyles with a 1950s teddy boy feel to create something unique for Velsvoir. An array of different products was used to achieve a combination of shapes and textures which added an element of drama to the overall look.”
