Some of the recurring themes that ran throughout the Fall/Winter 2017 Craig Green menswear collection included texture, inspiration from tapestry and exaggerated proportions. In all, the collection consisted of jackets, oversized quilted suits and jacquard sailor-style smocks that referenced medieval nobility, squires and men of the court.

Reportedly, garments from the Fall/Winter 2017 Craig Green menswear collection were inspired by flocked toys from the Sylvanian Families series, which set a direction for some of the materials, colors and textures explored in this collection.

As brocade and jacquard were once exclusively worn by the extremely wealthy in the Middle Ages, they remain fabrics that exude exclusivity, sophistication and even a touch of exoticism to this day.
