In November I had the privilege of meeting the Iconic Menswear Designer, Mr. Joseph Abboud. The event was to highlight the footing of the Joseph Abboud Brand in the Canadian market as well as the launch of both e-commerce and a limited edition collection. The event was nothing short of immaculate, with great people and even better clothing. The detailing, tailoring and the thought that went into the clothing was truly impeccable. I asked Mr. Abboud about his thoughts on trends in the fashion market and whether or not it is difficult to portray them with classic menswear, and his answer was that he keeps it interesting by making clothing that men want and styling them in new ways. The collection featured luxurious italian fabrics, interesting and innovative textures, and most importantly the construction.
The limited edition collection is available online at www.josephabboud.com and will only have 60 of each piece hand signed by Mr. Abboud himself. The presentation of clothing and the story that the clothing told surpassed any other presentation that I had been too. My favourite pieces were definitely the quilted jacket below, and all of the amazing blazers and neckwear.
The Joseph Abboud collection is available exclusively at Moore’s Clothiers and www.JosephAbboud.com
