The fourth instalment of London Collections: Men saw more than 200 guests descend on the Institute of Contemporary Art for Thomas Pink’s inaugural presentation of their Autumn/Winter 2014 collection.

The brand created an urban scaffold installation featuring 20 male models showcasing the Autumn/Winter 2014 range. Rough hewn British wools and tweeds mingled with smooth poplins and superfine shirting fabric, contributing to the strong layering theme.

London artists Bompas&Parr were commissioned to create an interactive showpiece especially for the evening which focussed on the 18th Century ban on selling gin. The duo created their very own take on the ‘puss and mew machine’ which was a contraption designed for the anonymous dispensing of the tipple. The gin was, of course, pink.

Thomas Pink Creative Director, Florence Torrens commented, “We are delighted with the presentation and the response. The installation gave us a chance to showcase key looks from our Autumn/Winter 2014 collection and working with Bompas&Parr allowed us to give full flight to the whimsical spirit so central to Pink.”
