‘A gentleman of rogue habits. A seducer. The libertine of his day.’
Dusky-eyed, dissolute, a hint of whisky on his breath, the modern rake is as elegant as he ever was and twice as rascally. Incapable of conformity or adhering to moral codes, he dresses as he lives: carelessly, brilliantly. He wants only the finest fabrics and best workmanship but knows the importance of wearing it lightly. From the crinkled cravat and the flash of white at his cuff, the coded smile and brush of lipstick on his collar, he knows that all sartorial rules must be mastered and then broken, all constraints ignored...
Taking its inspiration from the jet set of the early Seventies, RAKE mainline evokes an era of dissolute glamour when a man’s wardrobe was his only constant as he skipped insouciantly from continent to continent. Constructed using only the finest clothes, this is flexible luxury: each piece is sold separately and can be worn with its counterpart as a suit or separately with jeans, or chinos.
