Designer Oscar Udeshi’s Spring/Summer 2011 Collection combines ultra-luxe bespoke menswear tailoring with a contemporary edge resulting in beautiful well made pieces for a man who’s not afraid to dress to impress.
Unimpressed with what was on the market at the time Oscar had all his clothes custom-made to his design specifications. He trained under one of the last remaining bespoke shirt makers of Jermyn Street and it was it 1999 that the label UDESHI was created.
The collection may not be to every man’s taste but there is something very intriguing about this designer. A definite brand for the modern day gent who takes pleasure in wearing fashion-forward clothing from a perfect fitting blazer to the card holder in his pocket.
It’s all about the details that add that extra something to the pieces in the collection like the silver cocktail cufflinks that are laser-hallmarked and equally weighted on both sides so as not to pull the shirt cuff round to the side. Fashion genius!
The Extreme Cutaway Collar is one of Udeshi’s signature pieces. It has been designed to obtain the optimal shape, comfort and interlining to give the correct stiffness to add pure class and style to suits. It sweeps back to just before the yoke making it the most spread collar on the market and is reproduced each season in a small choice of exclusive colour-ways and fabrics which are only available for one season. Great for office dressing and even to wear to special events.
Time-consuming to make and using almost twice as much silk as a normal tie is the Seven Fold Tie. It is constructed from a single piece of silk, folded seven times and is entirely hand-stitched. But a beautiful result – a true master piece of clothing.
To make sure you’re stylish from head to toe then you should opt for an item from the Stingray Accessories Collection. These stunning pieces are crafted using traditional Florentine techniques and vegetable pit tanned leather making the accessories soft, flexible but strong and long lasting. Oscar Udeshi personally chooses the skins used to create the accessories and only one in thirty skins make the grade making them even more special and worth the money. Choose from a card holder, coin purse and money clip – whichever one suits your lifestyle best.
Oscar Udeshi is definitely a designer to keep in mind if you’re looking for made-to-measure tailoring with a contemporary edge.
