Gloverall x Pretty Green AW17 Capsule
This season, Gloverall has teamed up with Liam Gallagher’s iconic Pretty Green label to create a unique autumn/winter 2017 capsule collection with a distinctly British twist. The coming together of these two classically inspired brands has culminated in a series of showpiece duffle coats, which will no doubt become collectors’ items in the not too distant future. Combining the heritage and craftsmanship of the classic Gloverall duffle coat, with the innate style and ingenuity of Mr Liam Gallagher, this new capsule collection provides a new and unique take on this classic wardrobe staple.
Staying true to the identity of the brands, the collection centres around the classic Gloverall Monty Duffle coat as its focal point. There are two new styles, each in a different colourway. Each of the coats has been manufactured in the original 900gsm Gloverall duffle fabric at the Gloverall factory in England.
The Pretty Green X Gloverall duffle coats have all been made using the brand’s original Monty pattern but with a slightly slimmed down silhouette for a more contemporary fit. The first of these new styles feature a hand-stitched Union Jack flag sewn onto both the front and back body panels, adding a splash of colour and signifying the British heritage that has played such an important role in influencing both of these brands. This first style is available in both a classic black and a bolder camel. On the black duffle coat variation, this flag has been garment dyed. The second style is again cut slimmer but has no Union Jack attached. Instead, it features the Pretty Green AW17 ‘Black Label’ paisley design throughout both the interior lining and hood facing.
This second duffle coat style is available in both black and a beautifully rich burgundy. Made in England by Gloverall. Both duffle coats are made from a wool-blend cloth and provide exceptional warmth and comfort. Fitted with a protective hood and throat tab as standard, they also feature traditional wooden toggles with a jute rope fastening and are either lined with exclusive ‘Black Label’ paisley print or feature a hand-stitched Union Jack flag. The addition of the hand sewn Union Jack flags on the front of the jacket gives a nod to many iconic moments throughout musical history; including Liam Gallagher‘s performance at the Isle of White Festival and The Who‘s ‘The Kids are Alright’ album cover.
