"For me, Oliver Spencer is about being yourself while being smart, being distinctive, being comfortable. I want to make clothes that you can adopt and inhabit. Clothes you can live in, clothes you can do things in."
Designer Oliver Spencer is known for utilizing a sophisticated design approach in his collections. For SS17, Spencer continued to draw from the world of art and architecture. Using old school construction and exquisite tailoring, the designer tuned to Italian island life for inspiration. The color palette included reds, army greens, navy blue along with ivory hues. The designer showcased lapel-less and bomber jackets along with sharp, cuffed trousers. The emphasis was on minimalism as the collection was filled with timeless pieces. Spencer juxtaposed varied patterns with classic colors — a light blue, ivory, and ecru checkered shirt with matching pants and brown suede jackets paired with a black and white patterned shirt. Using the finest silk, merino, and linen fabrics, the pieces were classic with a modern feel.
