Lavenham X Fred Perry Collaboration
Not sure of what to wear this winter? British brands make a comeback through the 1969 jacket makers Lavenham. The brand is known to have made the first nylon quilted horse rug, closely followed by matching quilted jackets and waistcoats. This heritage got the attention of the also known British brand Fred Perry, making both British icons join into a new collaboration.
This new exciting line of jackets named ‘The Black Canvas’ capsule collection features a modern twist to the same bomber jackets and gilets, typical staples for this season. They are also available for both men and women being a signature design for both brands. With prices ranging from £195 to £250, these are definitely a quality investment coming from two well-known British manufacturers.
There is also a vast array of colours to choose from which should please the most conservative types and those who would have a bit more taste for the different. The available colours are gold, navy and red, black and red and black on black. This could be a great collector’s item for a fan of either brand as their first ever collaboration, as much as street wear obsessives who would like to have some more quality products in their wardrobe.
The design here used is also trying to encompass the values and aspects from both designers to pull together a young collection that is also different, but still on-trend, perfect for the cold season. With the news reporting that we are about to face one of the coldest winters ever reported, you will want to make sure that you can wrap up warm. Hopefully we will also get some more designs and exciting collaborations from other brands in the upcoming months. The question here that remains is: Are you a jacket or a gilet person?
