From the Mambo and Tango right through to Fandango, Ted can out-Fred the nimblest Astaire and to celebrate, his Menswear and Womenswear collections are dancing cheek to cheek to create a thrilling display of rhythm and electric blues.
Ted has choreographed a luxurious womenswear clothing and accessories collection for AW14, effortlessly combining vintage-inspired floral prints (such as Opulent Bloom and Botanical Bloom) in a layered and lavish palette of pink. His continued love affair with the 1950's has also created an ultra-feminine look to ensure all ladies become belles of the (mirror) ball.
In contrast, sportswear influences up the tempo with an urban, futuristic feel, and this ultra-modern look moves across neoprene sweat shapes, lux joggers and bomber jacket silhouettes. Engineered prints, such as Ted's Road to Nowhere, are themed around reflected landscapes, and colors (body) pop in electric blues, acid yellows and fresh neon pinks.
Contrasting texture is also key: from embossed snakeskin and sparkling sequins to metallic graphic jacquards. Embellishment adorns nearly every piece; coats with jeweled collars and heavily encrusted tunic style dresses add a rich, beguiling touch to the collection.
It takes two tango in Argentina but only one to belly dance in Cairo...and so, inspired by a recent boat trip along the Nile and other exotic destinations, Ted's menswear is full of thrilling precision and rhythmic wit this season.
Alive with jewel tones of burgundy, teal, emerald green and vibrant orange knitwear, jersey and chinos, the collection also features exciting, contemporary textures- including enlarged Birds Eye and Royal Oxford Knits.
Fresh detailing and modern finishes add classic touches to a robust collection of prints and jacquards. Colour blocking takes a bow on blazers with contrast lapels, pockets and sleeves, and on knitwear's bold blocks of aubergine, burnt orange and green.
Renowned for his charming prints, Ted's geos, dogtooth and paisleys stand out across the collection. Available on everything from pocket squares and ties to jersey and even Ted's classic brogue, camouflage and leopard prints also provide an easy way to add exotic flair to your outfit.
So let Ted take the lead this AW14 for a strikingly stylish showcase that just goes to prove that when you're in the spotlight, you've got to dance like everybody's watching.
We absolutely love Ted's Collection, definitely my style. Burgundy colors and navy are coming back on trend, well for me, blue has always been my favorite. And the impeccable style of the brogue shoes and bags are my obsession. Can't wait to hit them in stores!
