Ben Sherman Modern Classics Spring/Summer 2012 collection

March 12, 2012

For their Spring/Summer 2012 collection, Ben Sherman Modern Classics have been inspired by the contrasting landscapes of the British Isles and the wardrobe that’s evolved over time to take on this varied terrain and even more varied climate.

The label’s shirt making heritage is ever apparent in this collection with a variety of bold stripes, simple checks and English Rose florals reinvented for the modern wardrobe. Utilising fine Japanese selvedge fabrics and cotton from Italy’s distinguished Albini Mills, Modern Classics have once again paid particular attention to detail and fabrication.

Outerwear centres around a new technical parka which is constructed from a traditional cotton oxford which is fused to a three ply, fully waterproof, fully breathable technical fabric. Taking things a step further, all of the seams have been fully bonded, the critical stress points are reinforced and the main zip concealed behind a button-down storm flap. The finishing touches with leather detailing and wooden buttons and toggles.

Traditional Guernsey patterns adorn knitted cardigans and fine gauge polo shirts in cotton-linen blends, all of which are perfect for a bit of Spring layering. Heavy jersey is used in both the shorts and short sleeved sweatshirts, which is said to take its cues from post war sportswear, but refined and updated for a more contemporary feel.

Finishing things off, this season’s trousers come made from a heavy gauge Chambray and feature  bonded selvage detail, providing a welcome alternative to chinos and denim. For more information on the brand or to find your nearest stockist, go to the website here: Ben Sherman Modern Classics.
