Mamnick Black Label 2014
British label Mamick continues to develop its Black Label collection with new products. This year sees it release three pieces of clothing and two leather accessories, all of which are made in Japan.
First off is the absolutely corking Derwent Jacket, which comes in either camouflage or paisley denim, woven and manufactured in Japan. Both versions feature a three-button placket, with chest pocket and three-button cuff. The Unthank Jacket is designed by Osamu Aizawa and features bellows pockets, buttons cuffs and detachable neck-piece. It’s available in either beige or navy mid/heavy-weight drill cotton. As ever, limited numbers of both styles are available in the UK.
The Ecton is a new shirt style, made in a soft flannelette and available in either ivory and navy cotton. Features include a button-down collar with Mamnick’s tradmark trocas shell buttons and a very nifty placket detail. The quality of the cotton is top-notch and the perfect weight for the Summer months – I’m wearing one now as I type this and it’s perfect.
Finally come the leather accessories – a card-holder and Everyday case. Both are manufactured by hand in Japan by Hiroiki Ogawa from leathers sourced exclusively for the brand. The Everyday case comes complete with chunky brass zip and internal essentials zip-pocket and pen-holder, with both pieces Mamnick stamp-branded.
The photos took place in the studio of Sheffield-based Multi-disaplinary artist Del Hardin Hoyles before his upcoming exhibition ‘Seeing Things’ and the photography is by India Hobson. For more information on the brand, or to buy via their online shop, go here: Mamnick.
