Lavenham Spring/Summer 2011 collection

December 6, 2010

More Spring/Summer 2011 collections – here’s Lavenham’s offering to get your eyes around.

Lavenham have been producing quilted outerwear since 1972, making everything in-house at their premises in Sudbury. The guys have got some new styles for next season, as they continue to build on their heritage but also moves forward with more ‘fashion’ items. We’ve already started to see this with the brand’s recent collaboration with Norse Projects (which you can find here) and now they’re expanding their own range too.

The first thing I noticed was the quilted cotton bomber/varsity jacket. It’s certainly a bit of a departure for the brand but one that mixes their traditional quilt with contrasting materials and does it well. The quilt is also changed on this and all the other pieces in the range from the traditional diamond, by putting an extra zig-zag in it (it’s not the best description but a look at the pictures will explain). It’s subtle but it’s a really nice touch and helps differentiate the brand from others on the market.

My favorite piece is the overshirt in the second image – made from chambray and available in either blue or navy (which looks more charcoal to me), I like the fact it’s a single colour with no contrast and that the outer is also cotton, rather than nylon. The cotton outer is also used on the workers jacket in the third image and again this has no contrast trim, but also features concealed buttons, making the front a clean, simple affair.

The Nylon’s not been forgotten though and is used on their ‘Hawthorn’ and ‘Yew’ jackets (seen in the fourth, fifth and seventh images) as well as on certain vests in the range, all of which feature Lavenham’s trademark contrasting trim. If you want this style of outerwear in a more traditional form, these are the ones for you.

All of this should be available in the new year and when I saw it all properly a while back it looked well nice, plus it should all be reasonably priced too which always helps. For more information on the brand or to use their online store, have a look at their website here: Lavenham.
