One for the guys this week as we turn our Bijou spotlight on luxe label Duchamp.  Last week I was honoured to spend some time in the company of  master menswear designer Gianna Colarossi at the Duchamp pop-up store in London.

Gianna Colarossi is a man who wields his tailor’s chalk with prowess, creating timeless styles to fit and flatter the male physique.  The Spring/Summer collection continues to feature Duchamp’s signature bold prints and colour statements but in a new understated and elegant fashion.  The variety of styles are perfect for Bijou Grooms looking to mix and match to create a quirky and unexpected look.

As I ingratiated myself with the tactile display of velvet jackets, corduroy trousers and finest silk ties I was impressed by the way different pieces could be put together to create a unique Groom outfit.  The ethos “Duchamp continues to dress individuals” certainly fits with the mix and match nature of its collections.

Bijou Grooms I just know you’ll love the range of styles available – whether your Wedding theme is Nautical, Seventies swagger, Dandy or Country Gent there is something for you.  I’ve tried to include lots of inspiring images from the Duchamp look book in today’s post, to not only get you thinking about your Wedding day style but also about how you could utilise your Groom wardrobe after the big day.

I adore this beatnik jacket, Bijou Groom’s I would team with white slacks for a fresh summer vibe.

Your Wedding suit is an investment piece and (unlike your bride) you will have the option to wear it again and again so ensure the fit is perfect, the quality flawless and the shape timeless.  View the entire Duchamp collection at:
