Exclusive Interview With Patrick Grant + Backstage At The E. Tautz SS17 Show

Patrick Grant Backstage At The E. Tautz SS17 Show




Once again I was fortunate enough to be backstage of the E. Tautz show at LCM this year (see last seasons post). I interviewed creative director, Patrick Grant and I managed to grab some cheeky behind the scenes snaps. I really admire Patrick's work so to say I was nervous is an understatement. Here's what he had to say about the E. Tautz SS17 collection.

What was the idea behind the collection?

The original idea came from a dutch photographer called Hans van der Meer. He photographed lower league football matches around Europe and captured the oddness, quirkiness and heartbreak of the sporting endeavor. The collection is really a celebration of difference and being a culturally diverse group of individuals.

From the collection what would you say are some of the signature pieces?

The new jacket shape is very much a signature piece. We've worked on relaxing, softening and loosening the jacket shape. Also the big oversized shirt that was very loose and draped. There was a lot of volume in the shirt.

If you could sum up the collection into three words what would they be?

Easy, chic and simple.

What are you doing after the show to celebrate?

I'm going to be joining my friend for a glass of champagne at the Delaunay. There's actually a couple of us going for champagne tea. And then I'm going home to get some rest because I've got a massive bike race in the morning and have got to be up at 5am.

Will you be attending any shows if so who are you excited to see?

Probably not as we have to start prepping for sales. In fact we are starting sales this evening and then as of Monday I'll probably start working on the new collection.
