LES BASICS x GLOVERALL
For AW19, we have collaborated with iconic outerwear brand Gloverall with the aim to combine their heritage and British craftsmanship with our stripped back modernism.
Looking to Gloverall’s Whitby Deck duffle coat for initial inspiration - known for its waist crop and boxy fit – we stripped away the duffle’s toggles, replacing them with concealed poppers to give a more utilitarian look. For complete functionality, we added a detachable hood that when removed, the exposed fastenings are entirely concealed by the jacket’s collar, so as not to compromise the style.
Two in-seam pockets provide practicality while remaining in keeping with the modern and streamlined silhouette. Available in two lengths, know your climate and pick your partner. The crop fit of the original Whitby Deck remains, while an elongated version provides comfort in harsher environments.
A surrounding storm flap is the key feature highlighting the contrasting fabrics. Jersey backed British wool provides the main insulation which is met with Italian ripstop to echo our seasonal fabric and colour-blocking story, whilst giving Gloverall’s heritage the Les Basics treatment.
A meeting of minds, made in England.
