Tender Autumn/Winter 2012 collection

July 23, 2012

Regular readers will remember I featured a preview (well more of a peek) of Tender’s Autumn/Winter collection a while back (find that here if you haven’t seen it). Well now here’s a better look at the range, modeled as ever by William himself.

This season’s signature colour is a light mushroom brown, made from the bark of the wattle tree. It features on shirts and Henley’s and is also over-dyed on denim to create a warm black, with the cotton sewing threads taking on a rich beige hue. Even though the jeans look black, it’s a much subtler effect  than the logwood dye from two season’s ago, with the base indigo still coming through in different lights.

This season also sees new fabrics introduced in the form of English-woven left-hand twill cottons, deadstock horse-blanket cottons, satins, and tickings, plus Welsh woolen flannels and ‘Beavertene’ foundry moleskin. Also new is Scotish woven knitwear (made from un-dyed wools grown on the Shetland Islands), with a crew neck jumper coming in two colourways with jacquard woven ‘train tracks’ running around the chest horizontally.

Finally, a collaboration between Tender and the University of Brighton Design Archives brings a new range of prints to T-shirts, there’s William’s take on the classic drivers watch, and the label’s excellent leather goods are ever present with wallets and belts once again featured. For more information on the label, go to the website here: Tender. Also check out their online shop selling exclusive products here: Trestle Shop.

    This is the year I buy myself some Tender jeans. Love the style and the build. Would you recommend the 130 or 132 styles?
