One Good Turnbull, Deserves Another

London Collections | Turnbull & Asser Spring/Summer 2015 Presentation

For the first time, Turnbull & Asser eased into the heart of Mayfair, London to present their full Spring/Summer 2015 campaign at the iconic brand’s new headquarters and to participate in London Collections: Men.


Introduced as “A Peacock Amongst the Parrots,” the seasonal collection tells the story of an English gentleman who becomes stranded on an island with only the comfort of his Turnbull & Asser trunk. Though far from civilization, the peacock’s bold colors and well-dressed appearance allow him to assimilate with the brilliant birds.

The eclectic collection reflects the unpredictability of the wilderness, encouraging freedom and courage of expression in the products. Turnbull & Asser’s latest designs explore mixed variations in traditional wear, such as the wide ‘Skipper’ tie, luxurious gowns in distress (with over-weave patterns), and jacket-pajamas. Soft tailoring provides an elegant feel to the traditional double-breasted blazers banded with elaborate, horizontal stripes. The blazer’s deep blue color is reminiscent of the sea and all things nautical. In good measure, trousers in textured soft cottons and wool provide a light accompaniment to the intricate outerwear.

Discounts, Discovery & Delight: 3Ds for Retail Success

In fashion and retail, Dopamine is the drug of choice. Technically, Dopamine is the neurotransmitter of “desire.” Dopamine leaps across synapses in our brain to control our reward and pleasure centers. It enables craving. It induces repeat behaviors. It makes us want more. Therefore, it is in our best interest to create products and experiences which induce the release of dopamine in our consumers. We could use some dopamine for ourselves, too. In our fashion and retail world, there are three primary stimuli, "3Ds," we can control to deliver hits of dopamine: Discounts, Discovery and Delight.
