A Style of Authority of Modern American Clothing
Paul Stuart is pleased to announce the launch of their Fall 2019 tailored clothing and sportswear collections. For over 80 years, the company has been known around the world for its stylish menswear designed for the sophisticated gentleman. True to the culture of the company and its distinctive point of view, these new styles reflect the philosophy of Paul Stuart while modernizing it for a new generation of customers.
This collection features a wide range of new designs that include a strong color palette, lots of texture and advanced tailoring details. Paul Stuart’s Creative Director, Ralph Auriemma says, “For this season, I was inspired to reinterpret the historic Paul Stuart DNA in a contemporary way by utilizing the richness of fall’s materials and archival fabric prints for a modern wardrobe. Fall’s silhouettes, for both Paul Stuart and Phineas Cole, are evolving and drawing notice from menswear influencers and publications like Esquire and GQ for their fashion editorials.”
Paul Stuart’s Modern Country Gentleman group features bold plaids in bright colors, with a mix of materials that include shearling, leather, tweeds, and Shetland wools for color and texture. Auriemma has introduced the Philipp, a new jacket silhouette that features a soft shoulder construction with a higher armhole for a flattering fit.
The new outerwear styles feature technical fabrics that are wind and water-resistant. Auriemma has combined typical fall materials such as corduroy, cashmere and wool with lightweight down and bonded seams to create coats and jackets that are equally stylish and warm. “These styles marry the DNA of Paul Stuart with modern fabrications,” says Auriemma and “give the wearer the freedom to express their own individuality in technical outerwear.”
For the Phineas Cole collection, Auriemma presents the Art Deco formal collection with a 1920’s inspired tuxedo jacket that features a wider shawl shaped lapel. There’s also a Phineas Cole logo crest on a turtleneck sweater, a twist on a classic tennis sweater in black with purple trim and a quilted jacket with a shawl collar trimmed in wool felt. In trousers, the Maxfield pant has a wider leg with 2 forward-facing pleats. Auriemma says, “It’s how it’s put together that makes it Phineas Cole.” New ties here feature archival prints in a larger proportion that looks fresh and modern.
The Equestrian Collection from Phineas Cole features bold plaids reminiscent of horse blankets, double-breasted, patchwork Shetland wool sport jackets, suede-trimmed cashmere cardigans, and soft corduroy trousers. Standouts in this group include a multi-colored paisley printed corduroy suit and a number of matching cotton print shirt and silk tie combinations. Jackets feature a technically advanced construction method that eliminates the traditional canvas and shoulder pads making it light and comfortable for the wearer.
Paulette Garafalo, CEO of Paul Stuart says, “With these new collections, the company continues to set the standard for Modern American Style. We offer a full array of choices from elegant evening wear to casual sportswear for every aspect of our customer’s life. We are always looking ahead towards fashion and style trends but at the same time, we remain rooted in our legacy of time-honored craftsmanship.” Accessories for fall include bright oversized mufflers and scarves, tweed hats and a full collection of suede and leather loafers, boots, evening shoes, and sneakers.
