One or two new things have sprung forth from our little apparel-fridge in east London.
First is the launch of a project with Beams International Gallery: a "shop-in-shop", as they're called, at the flagship store in Harajuku. Four garments have been developed especially for the event, using two specially-woven tweeds. There is a navy-blue woollen trench with detachable shearling top-collar, a navy-blue vest, a brown birdseye tweed collarless jacket (with reversible horn-brass buttons) and matching traditional trousers. The cloth was woven here in London, by a weaving acquaintance of ours, at the other end of east London.
Here is some of what it is all about ...
In other news -- we have a few new Ventile cotton jackets.
The tour jacket -- a coat with a few features which are intended to make cycling a little bit easier, if you so inclined (and useful of course even if you don't cycle, like the shooting shoulder). Made with heavier, military-weight Ventile cotton, this one, with a full lining of West Yorkshire wool-melton.
Then there is the seam jacket jacket, with its detachable hood. Regular-weight Ventile, this time around, with a light cotton lining.
There is a space-grey version, too.
Off the top of my head, that is that -- but there may well be more over at http://www.sehkelly.com/shop/.
Thank you. As you were.
