Lookbook - Common People Spring Summer 201
I was really impressed by the forthcoming Common People collection that I saw at LCM. Their current range for Spring/ Summer 2014 is equally strong. The look book images, snapped by acclaimed photographer Jonathan Daniel Pryce, capture the collection's essence of Scottish Summer holidays, inspired by Celtic art and 1970's field trips.
Created buy Kestin Hare, former head of design at Nigel Cabourn, primary colours are used on strong outerwear pieces. Branding and Airtex linings are mixed with clean & contemporary silhouettes and technical details which give a fresh and clean look.
Specially developed jacquards & prints, based on Celtic crosses and knots are complemented by the contrasting texture in a knitted tee or sweater and coated washed back cottons.
Common People create premium clothing and footwear with a focus on quality, craftsmanship and local sourcing. This collection is unique and contemporary. Take a closer look at some of the pieces below:
The Barry Shirt features a specially developed, Celtic inspired shard print in grey & yellow tones. 100% cotton and slim fitting.
The Danby is a classic crew neck sweater with a relaxed fit and raglan sleeve construction.
Made in the UK, the Drymen jacket is constructed from navy textured cotton with matt nylon contrast upper body.
Made in Manchester, the Grasmere trouser is cut from a heavy weight, pigment dyed navy Italian cotton/ linen which has been washed back to give a soft, subtle aged appearance.
The Kendall jacket is constructed from a khaki colour coated cotton which has been washed back, revealing complementary colour tones around the seams, creating an aged effect.
The Snowdonia baseball jacket is cut from high quality 100% cotton navy cloth with a subtle honeycomb texture and knitted ribbed collar and cuffs.
