Kent & Curwen Spring/Summer 2017

For Spring/Summer 2017 Kent & Curwen Creative Director Daniel Kearns in partnership with David Beckham has created a wardrobe made up of masculine pieces that are both relatable and resonant of true British style. The focus is on the re-appropriation of British classics and the influence of the brand’s rich history and unique heritage, which spans 90 years, refreshing them and reimagining them for a contemporary lifestyle.
British sporting and regimental traditions, so synonymous with the Brand, have been reinvigorated by using the heritage stripe motif in a contemporary knitted bomber jacket and knitted sweaters as well as details of under collar and plackets, offering a subtle nod to the brands beginnings while keeping a strong modern attitude.
The college blazers are reinvented in deconstructed single and double-breasted shapes and top stitched like work-wear. The regatta motif is featured here again in exclusive stiff cotton or as a subtle under-collar detail. A new style for summer is the ‘shacket’, somewhere between a blouson and shirt it’s the perfect modern summer wardrobe staple. In subtle cotton seersucker when matched with trousers in the same cloth creates a sophisticated casual summer look while when cut in large sky blue and white stripes creates a strong relaxed summer statement. The casual trousers are cut slim with subtle side adjuster details creating a modern silhouette. The collection also features several shapes of shorts from a tennis length in regimental stripes to Bermuda shorts in seersucker.
Kent & Curwen staples are updated including the hooped and raw finish rugby shirts and T-shirts re-worked and authentically stonewashed for a vintage effect and elevated through embroidered patching on the chest, a nod to old school collegiate style featuring the signature 1926 Rose patch and famed Three Lions, to elevate an off-duty outfit and reaffirm Kent & Curwen’s ties to its English heartland.
A collection of pieces with roots in English tradition that fits seamlessly with how men around the world dress today, continuing to find new inspiration from its history.
The collection is now available at all Kent & Curwen stores and KENTANDCURWEN.COM.
