Exclusive: Ted Baker – Take The Lead AW14 Collection

Wednesday 24 September 2014
Words Darren Skene

Ted Baker’s AW14 collection is ready and raring to blow you away and into the chillier months. Strolling hand in hand through the fallen leaves, Ted’s men and women’s wear designs come together in perfect harmony. This season’s pieces ooze sophistication. Women can douse themselves in romantic floral patterns washed in various hues of pink, whilst men are covered in majestic jewelled tones.

Ted seems to have brought texture to the forefront of this season’s collection with embossed snakeskin, sequins, metallic graphic jacquards and more embellishment than you can shake a jewellery box at. His continued love of the 1950s means that ladies can expect to get in touch with their feminine side in Blooms of Enchantment prints and luxuriously fabricated dresses, most of which will be found in the Langley collection. Pony skin with leather paneling and goat hair jackets toughen up the otherwise whimsical designs.


Contrastingly, we’ve been transported from the 50s to the future with Ted’s women’s sportswear designs. Colour pops and ultra-futuristic looks sweep through an array of lux joggers, bomber jackets and sweat shapes. What better way to channel the urban chic within you than a mixture of brightly coloured patterns, leather and cashmere?

Ted’s menswear AW14 collection not only gives out a beautiful autumnal colour palette, but it’s also bursting with prints, colour blocking and a even further jump back in time to the roaring 20s. Think polished, slim and sharp suits, with all the trimmings, much like a beautifully prepared Christmas dinner but in fabric form.


Known for his use of prints, Ted experiments this season with geometric patterns, dogtooth and paisleys across his entire men’s range this season. Find it covering brogues, satchels, shirts and jumpers to only mention a few. These aren’t for the fainthearted man; wear your print with pride, as Ted intended. (There is the option of paisley printed socks for those that aren’t man enough).

Whichever way you look at it Ted Baker’s AW14 collection is one to marvel at. Check out their menswear and womenswear online.
