The new 2015 Spring-Summer collection is designed around the culture of clothes and in particular: how to wear classic clothes today? Detlev Diehm, the creative director has defined what is essential for Scabal today. In its mission to ensure continuous improvement in the manufacturing process within its workshop in Germany, Scabal has created a new way of making the shoulders: they are manufactured according to traditional processes and are fine and supple for an unparalleled level of comfort.
The ‘urban’ collection and the ‘weekend’ collection are different and have the same feel to them. It is possible for example to combine a dark blue jacket in tone on tone fantasy fabric with a top-of-the-range pair of jeans and a shirt in washed silk. This combination of similar tones and moods results in a very casual outfit that is at the same time very elegant. The blue suit can also be worn with a linen shirt and a pair of soft suede moccasins for an individual style that reveals a sense of freedom and yet that observes certain rules of male elegance. The cut is designed for fluidity and is your guarantee of a chic and natural appeal.
The new outfits are made in classic and rather more original fabrics: plain, jacquard, stripes (which marks their great comeback) or in pure linen-look wool in shades of grey or brown.
As a general rule, jackets have two buttons and patch pockets and can be lined with fantasy print fabrics or fabrics with geometric or floral designs. One of our flagship garments is a pure silk jacket with a delicate sheen for a discreetly hedonist hint of luxury. The palette of colours is subtle and includes unusual shades: tropical wood, cigar, parchment, white sand, to name but a few. You are transported to Cuba or Sumatra. The accent in this summer collection focuses in the main on a multitude of blues and a dark blue that is almost black with a subtle greyish sheen. All of which contrast beautifully with lobster red and white.
The trousers are made in authentic Irish linen, cotton and kapok or washed cotton in a multitude of bright colours. The cuts without pleats continue to lead trends, but we are also seeing the emergence of new slim models with one or two pleats.
The shirt collection is resolutely modern and is formal, elegant, but also casual. We are also seeing a comeback in minimalist versions of stripes. The fabrics are fine and luxurious: cotton, linen or dark denim. And for connoisseurs we have the Rare Denim collection. This comprises a selection of jeans with a selvedge finish. These top-of-the-range jeans are made using cutting-edge Japanese machines and are more resistant and have a unique look as they age.
The element that is common to all the garments in the collection of knits is the use of extremely fine silk yarn. When blended with cashmere, wool or cotton, you are guaranteed the very best level of comfort and a refined finish.
