The rebirth: Jigsaw menswear

Jigsaw has relaunched its menswear collection, its first since 1999. It will be available online and through 18 of its flagship stores with a standalone Jigsaw Menswear shop planned for Spitalfields, London, later this year. The line, focused on simple and modern elegance, is being overseen by design director Frances Walker (previously with Nicole Farhi), who joined the Jigsaw team in February 2011 to lay the foundations for the range.

The debut: Carven

Having earned a reputable name for himself by turning around the profile of dusty French couture house Carven, Guillaume Henry launches his first collection of men’s ready-to-wear for the label this season. This initial men’s collection was sold to 60 retailers around the world, firmly placing Henry on the ones-to-watch menswear radar.

In 1999 the firm launched an own-brand collection called Beams Plus, and its spring ‘Hipster’ range debuts at Mrporter.com. Expect comfortable and manly separates inspired by New York’s ‘Beat’ movement of the Fifties.
