Soldier on in the Military Trend 2012/13


Soldier on in the Military Trend 2012/13

It's a military march into autumn/winter 2012/13. Military is one of those trends that perennially pops back every Autumn/Winter in some shape of form. As a British winter and the treat of chilly winds and lashings of rain set in, it’s a good job military is back as we wouldn’t want to wrap up in anything other than heavy, warm, man-like pieces.








 We’re talking a brass-buttoned jacket with a peplum or a reimagined parka with black leather sleeves. Biggest of all is the return of camouflage, which has stolen our hearts via influential street stylers and pop stars. his season came fully loaded with desirability, perhaps a sign designers are listening attentively to buyers and consumers










There was an undercurrent of comfort, with models cocooned by sumptuous layers and indulgent textures. And this season designers listened to the celebrities call and gave us all the soldiers fashion we need from the high street to the catwalk, they've raised an army in sleek khaki uniform. Stomping black boots, a double breasted coat, functional bags and a sternly cinched waist will get you drafted. Add a cap and you'll be sent straight to the front line of fashion. 







This season it’s up to you to choose your muse. From the glossy-maned equestrian girl in Ride On, to the dark and deadly Girl with a Dragon Tattoo type who inspired the Dark Arts trend, via winter florals, soldier boys, and a flirtation with the Far East, this season the world is your fashion oyster. But start with a touch of green and forward march. Head-to-toe leathers, ornate Kremlin jewel-style jackets and every berry shade imaginable ruled the runways at the shows back in February. And now they’re poised and ready to hit your wardrobe.

Iron&Pin  the brainchild of Norwich-based designer Tom Hayden is an independent apparel company founded in Norwich by 22 year old fashion designer,  specialising in handmade, tailored trousers with a personal touch, but also experience in a wider range of areas, for example, handmade vests, screen printed t-shirts etc. The hard work behind the company is evident in the care and attention given to every detail of each garment, he tends not  to aspire to any other artists but wants to develop his own style and technique, without being subconsciously influenced by any other design already in circulation. 










With the death of skinny jeans Iron&Pin have stepped into the fold to make trousers just as easy to wear but with a more refined look and feel through the attention to detail and well considered shape and colour create an out come of quality that you can’t buy on the high street.  He has always been inspired by his origins in Britain and his family background and he finds a lot of encouragement in reflecting on both his past and present situations and the colours which he can link to them. 




The t-shirts are all a little oversized with the intention of the wearer looking relaxed and casual and styling points include cuffs on t-shirts, low neck lines a mixture of jersey and shirting used in the shirts, ankle ties, curved button plackets and extended cuff plackets.











The trench coat in particular is made to look better whilst walking and has a different look with each button combination and the Blunt shirt has a collar design which gets inspiration from past victorian ages. Tom Hayden seeks to set right what countless brands have messed up since the birth of off-the-rack clothing, by breathing new life into trousers and retailing them at affordable price-points.
