Ted Baker SS14
Fashion’s foremost enigmatic showman, Ted Baker, has set the stage for an eye-popping
collection of stylish thrills and frills this SS14. Memorable moments of beauty appear alongside
mesmerising, irreverent style to amaze and astound, in equal measure.
Ted’s sumptuous womenswear collection puts on a show this SS14 with striking prints, strong
silhouettes and intoxicating colours
Theatrical tones and sorbet shades, including pink, lilac, lemon and mint, are paired with metallic
highlights to create a stylish allure. Botanical beauty provides a focus on prints, with Ted’s ‘Rose
on Canvas’, ‘Symmetrical Orchid’ and ‘Sugar Sweet Floral’ prints flourishing across clothing and
Modernised through colour and texture, tailoring features boucle and subtle metallic fabrics,
whilst cocoon coats, blazers and cropped jackets are draped effortlessly over the shoulder. Fluid
feminine fabrics and cleverly placed pleats and tucks on dresses take a lead role, whilst free
flowing dresses and tops twinkle with jewels, adding glamour and charm to the collection.
In contrast, clean lines and structured silhouettes also make an appearance, including colour
block dresses, minimal detailing and biker styling adding an edge to jackets and coats. Neon
continues to make a statement with Ted’s ‘Electric Day Dreams’ floral print featuring fluorescent
flashes. Statement pieces include a lime neoprene dress and a neon yellow knit, teamed with
neon yellow bomber jacket and nude leather shorts. After all, it’s not enough to know how to look
the part… you have to know how to turn heads.
Ted’s menswear collection, meanwhile, is full of flamboyant polish and panache, offering vibrant
colours, original prints and thrilling threads.
Stripes, spots, geos and checks appear throughout, whether worn head to toe (step forward
Ted’s geo print suit) or as subtle details on clothing and accessories. A pink and white linen
stripe blazer conjures up an image of a quintessential English seaside gent, while the geometric
floral designs of Turkish tiles provide inspiration for statement printed shirts and accessories.
Jackets feature distinctive debonair touches including smarter tortoiseshell and mother of pearl
buttons, and shirts have wider, button down collars. Ted’s iconic linings reflect the diversity of
his latest travels, from English straw boater lining prints to the more exotic parrot print.
So get in on the act with Ted this SS14.
Already renowned for its traditional fabrications yet unconventional style, Ted’s fishing-inspired Tight
Lines collection embraces his many eccentricities this season, and features brighter tones with
shades of red, royal blue, orange and coral.
A bold overcheck khaki blazer and royal blue linen check blazer feature orange, ecru and rose
highlights, worn with contrasting waistcoats and tonic cotton chinos. Pocket squares and ties in
checks and geo prints provide further interest, whilst rising trout and stag print linings and horn
burnished buttons add a vintage feel.
Full of unbridled indulgence, Ted’s SS14 Langley collection creates a soft focus in a barely there
palette of soft peach, nude pink and fresh mint alongside sheer fabrics. Tulle and mesh fabrics are
modernised with armoury style embellishment trims on dresses, whilst textured metallic boucle pieces
add grown up allure.
Enchanted by the romance of Italy, an Italian Cathedral provides the inspiration for the ‘Florentine’
print which appears on a sleeveless top and skinny cigarette pant. For the perfect finale, take a bow in
the show stopping ‘China Blue’ print maxi dress which captures the essence of the Orient.
Ted’s Phormalwear presents a rich and decadent ‘after hours’ collection, with sumptuous suits in
tones of midnight blue, purple and silver grey made with the finest Italian cotton. Paisley, geo and
spotted print shirts, ties and pocket squares provide modern finishing touches.
Debonair’s exhilarating personality takes on a preppy influence with a cobalt blue suit and grey linen
windowpane check suit referencing the collegiate style of Long Island smart resort wear.
Flaunting the bold and outlandish, Ted’s Global collection closes the show with a flamboyant and
fearless statement piece: a psychedelic paisley print in a rich red worn with a contrasting geometric
