As requested from a few members here, we’d like to share with everyone a series of close-ups of the fabrics from the AW14/15 collection. We hope this gives you a better idea of the colours and textures, without seeing them in real life!
First we have the plum melange knit-back wool, a soft Japanese wool with a felted surface, a mix of olive, mauve/plum, smoky greys, and mustard yellows yarns.
The navy and grey melange wool stretch gabardines, also Japanese, are the more classic styles we present this season. The elastane gives the fabric weight/drape and ‘bounce’.
The navy Moto MA-1 bomber is lined with a quilted ripstop nylon and fleece quilting which is windproof and incredibly warm - perfect for the deep winters.
The Japanese smoky mélange olive wool gaberdine is of a lighter weight than the navy gaberdine stretch wool, and can be worn all year round.
Next, we have the grey and off-white Italian crepe wool-silk blends. These have a zig-zag herringbone weave, and are slightly sheer. Although very lightweight, this silk-wool blend is incredibly warm, much like a camping bag silk-liner, and is great insulation for the winter months.
Last but not least, we have a high-quality Japanese black technical wool - one of our favourites! With a unique weave that resembles a 1X1 rib knit. It is a breathable 3-season wool with an incredible dry/technical hand feel. Great for layering in the winter months, and on its own for autumn or spring.
Next up, we’ll be posting some close-up shots of products. If anyone has any requests for detailed shots, please let us know and we can organise another small series.
Look forward to any comments, questions. Here, or on firstname.lastname@example.org.
