Albam Autumn/Winter 2012 collection

August 14, 2012

Regular readers will remember that I was privy to a preview of this collection back in April (find that here), now the official lookbook images have been released and we finally get an idea of how everything wears together as a complete range.

As I said in my previous post, this collection marks a change in a number of ways – it’s their first ‘collection’ as such and is conceived as a whole, instead of the steady release of items that has gone before. It also sees them upping the ante with their fabrication and production whilst removing all
that’s superfluous on their garments.

The lads have still stuck to their core idea of making beautiful staple items, but have brought in fabrics like bonded wool, Japanese cotton twill and heavyweight washed moleskin to give the clothes a more refined feel, with technical mesh interiors and pockets lined in old sari fabrics amongst some of the details present.

The outdoors has always been, and continues to be a huge part of the label with more performance orientated pieces like compression wear being added to the range. This combined with a large selection of frankly brilliant knitwear and some great tailoring adds up to a well rounded collection and one that’s well worth going through when it’s released next month.

For more information on the brand, or to buy any of the current range online (which is in the sale), go to their website here: Albam.

    Deadly collection, love the liberty looking fabrics for the scarves, and the cagoules fantastic too.

    We have introduced our Vintage Chino alongside our current Taper model. The Vintage is looser through the leg which we are pushing as an alternative to the current slimmer chino. There are also a couple of wool trouser styles, one with turnup and the other more rugged with twin needle detailing and cinch back.

    Looks great, can’t wait to see it in person, especially the stipey shirt and the parka.
