Shop the look: Crosby Cardigan, Maroon

 

Using an industrial colour palette of greys and darker shades, the collection displays a selection of subtle motifs associated with the landscapes, nature and cities on the journey from West to East.

Print inspiration comes from a range of places. The sights of Moscow; the rolling Ural mountains; the elusive wildlife in the woodlands and tundra, and never forgetting the occasional train-spotter reference.

It’s not all train cabins, tea sets, and jotter books however. Art Deco of the early 1920’s is present, alongside an additional nod to the constructivism era. Vintage Soviet Union textile prints have been unearthed and reimagined, with geometric shapes and patterns heavily prominent.

Heavy wale corduroy plays a key role in the collection along with borg- fleece, featuring heavily in the tailoring, shirting, outerwear and headwear. Layering is a dominant feature, with fleece jackets meeting heavy gauge knitwear inspired by vintage Soviet knit patterns.
