Tim Hamilton is sort of rare item as a designer. Yes, he does both womenswear and menswear, but he does more men’s than women’s, which is fairly unusual. His aesthetic works equally well on both sexes, mostly because of his tailoring, which is loose, easy, and is very comfortable. As you can see from our photos, though, it is not unstructured or slouchy. This is not cheap clothing. What a Tim Hamilton design is that makes it unique and worth the money, is bold. Mr. Hamilton’s work always smacks of a defiance which makes it turn heads. This season his exceptional prints and splendid trousers carried the weight of that message flawlessly. There’s a subversiveness to his work that makes him really enjoyable to cover season after season. So the checklist: high quality fabrics… check, tremendous fit and finish…check, distinctive and rebellious… check. It’s official… Tim Hamilton is cool.
