Garbstore delves into the relics of Britain’s industrial past for Autumn Winter 18, combining iconic pieces from previous seasons with a fresh take on heritage. There is a strong focus on tailoring that runs throughout the collection; textural and tonal, the colour palette fuses rich tones of burgundy with earthy greens and brown.
The Work Jacket and Work Coat are a relic of Britain’s industrial past. Recreated using a selection of Japanese and recycled yarns, the shape has been based on original garments whilst construction has been updated to provide a modern approach. The Wool Western Jacket is an adaptation of early denim jacket styles made from a Japanese Melton Wool. Taking key elements from a design classic and combining them with signature Garbstore detailing to create a trans-seasonal staple.
This season’s hero piece, the B-15 Hooded Leather Parka references the classic aviator jacket. Made in one of the UK’s best leather factories, the coat has a long-line and oversized silhouette with a shearling lining. It is designed to be reversible.
Shirting plays a prominent role for AW18, Garbstore introduces new styles alongside updated seasonal signatures for a varied line. The Double Bluff Shirt provides a refined take on American bowling and western shirts. Made from a cotton flannel, it features sateen detailing in contrasting colours. The Expert Shirt is a pullover shirt inspired by the classic fishing smock. Constructed from a recycled wool tweed, it makes the perfect winter wardrobe addition.
Made in England, The English Difference collection reprises and evolves to include a new multi-colour knit option plus a line of accessories and Rugby Shirts. The Dyad Neck Warmer and Beanie are made from a rib merino blend with twisted yarns for a melange finish. The two can be linked together for a 2-piece balaclava. The Rugby Shirts are produced at one of England’s oldest factories and take reference from a simpler age of sportswear, primarily the 1970’s. Alongside the classic sport details, some elements of classic shirting prevail. Collared and constructed from Italian Oxford Weave shirting, they provide a preppy addition to the sportswear inspired line.
