Patrick Grant, the head designer for E. Tautz, debuted one roomy high waist trouser during the Fall/Winter 2014 season and that certainly was a primer for what was unleashed this year. Every look that cruised down this season’s runway featured these distinctively capacious garments. Known for simple cutting patterns paired with strong colors and unfussy layers, FW2015 saw the rise of (what we’re calling) the E. Tautz trousers, which contributed great cohesion to the collection. Grant drew inspiration from 1930’s British menswear giving strong emphasis to broad shoulders, suppressed waistlines, and plenty of double-breasted jackets – all in a strict grey palette. As for the E. Tautz X Christian Louboutin partnership, a brass trim-studded, rubber-soled clogs seamlessly completed each look in the show.
True to the E. Tautz’s heritage, impeccable tailoring was showcased through the play on volume and the ability for the seemingly heavy garments to move effortlessly and comfortably. The collection was bold and unapologetic in nature. In a slim-fit world, E. Tautz is flaunting baggy-esque trousers and loose jackets. Could this be a subliminal nod to the rising counter-culture population? Noticeable was that E. Tuatz’s catering was to the tall and lean fellow with a fancy for impeccable construction, luxurious fabrics, and design. Interestingly simple and somewhat experimental, E. Tuatz did not sacrifice style in its voyage away from the skinny fit.
