Scabal Spring Summer 2010
Tailoring with a Twist
Scabal is presenting an ode to the art of the couturier for the summer of 2010. Know-how, many years of experience and a dedication to personal service are the pillars of these “artists of male elegance”. Think of Savile Row, a world of fabrics and needles, an age-old craftsmanship combined with today's creativity. All this lavished with a modern, surrealistic touch. New for this season is the “false three-button” jacket: the jacket has 3 buttons but looks like a two-button jacket thanks to the rolling lapel that covers the top button.
Scabal's summer is like the British sky, one moment blue and the next moment grey and cloudy. All shades of blue are on offer. They are brightened up with colourful splashes, from fresh mint-green to lavender. Checks are everywhere and take on all formats, from Vichy checks, via discreet checks, to striking, sharply outlined checks.
Riviera, Scabal's new summer fabrics include 35 interpretations in pure linen, linen and wool and linen, cotton and silk. In addition to seersucker stripes, we also find checks. For men who love softness and luxury, there is Mercury, a mohair collection with 35% kid mohair, and Montego Bay, an ultrasoft fabric with 60% kid mohair that comes in a plain version as well as stripes with timeless designs. Next summer Scabal will also bring out a new range of Super 140’s under the name Appeal. It comes in no less than 67 designs and in a wide range of shades, from light to dark. A cut above this is the Super 150’s line, Perception, in 240 and 250 grams consisting of 35 designs. It is a very contemporary, aesthetic line in the “Bowater” weave, which is characterised by its strong colour contrasts and sheen.
Tradition and high tech go hand in hand at Scabal. A beautiful example of this is Monza Pole Position, a Super 100 with nanotechnology finishing, which is stain- and water-resistant and keeps the fabric impeccable, even in a humid environment. This finishing also results in the fabric being easier to tailor.
The comeback of silky gloss
The fabrics for blazers are taking off in three trends: classic designs with discreet checks, plain fabrics and more pronounced checks. New to this area is the Mosaic line with the Nobility fabric, a classic combination of wool and silk with a new shine. Glossy, silky fabrics had almost disappeared but are now making a comeback. The silky gloss gives the fabrics a luxurious, dressy radiance. Scabal offers these fabrics in strong checks, false plain and plain fabrics.
Royal: choose your classics
The most important collection this season is Royal, a Super 100’s with 95 different articles. Royal is a noble fabric offering an excellent price/quality ratio. As the name suggests, Zenith is the nec plus ultra this season. This exceptional line of Super 180’s cashmere comes in a spectrum of light colours and trendy designs.
The cutBritish from top to bottom
The British look is going to be a hot item in men's fashion next summer. British style stands for timeless, stylish and formal, both in terms of cut and design. The trousers remain tight and the jackets as short as in 2009. Wide lapels and two-button jackets are the norm. An exception is the three-button jacket, which looks like a two-button model thanks to the rolling lapels covering up the top button. The shoulders take on two different styles: narrow and constructed on the one hand, and soft and de-constructed on the other. By offering several types of interlining, the customer has the choice between a suit that is tight- fitting or somewhat looser-fitting.
