The English Difference - Traditional Knitwear with a sportswear twist
Turning traditional knitwear on its head, Garbstore's The English Difference creates pieces knitted with a 1950’s loop back weave, traditionally used in sportswear jerseys, and made from 100% fine cotton yarns resulting in a super-soft, flat knit.
Each piece from the line has been procduced in the Midlands, using time honored traditional techniques for modern menswear pieces with an distinctly vintage approach.
For their new Spring Summer 2019 collection entitled the Atlantic Education Series, the label took inspiration from the heritage and identity of Britain and America’s prestigious colleges. Taking bold colour blocking as a theme, the pieces by The English Difference recontextualises stripes and shades usually seen on varsity scarves, ties and sports jerseys to create a range of eclectic cardigans and crew necks that pay playful homage to collegiate style.
Known for its charmingly abstract designs, Los Angeles-based jewellery label CLED is on a mission to shake up the industry by championing upcycled materials and ethical manufacturing.
