When I started Anglo-Italian my vision was to create a roster of classic garments that would form the backbone of our offering, designing relevant pieces that are able to be re-worked and re-imagined season after season, as well as added to if the right concepts came to me.
This season I am proud to have released some of the best iterations of these designs to date. The Fawn Martingala, Russell Check Country Coat and Green Three Bucket Pocket Jacket spring to mind as Anglo-Italian at our best, reinventing traditional silhouettes as contemporary tailoring-inspired garments fit for this era.
We have also broadened our range to include two sister pieces of outerwear, the Sailing and Barn Jackets - fuller cuts paired with interesting technical fabrics and details that fit seamlessly amongst our range.
With tailoring at the very epicentre of our vision, it was a pleasure to have friend and long standing customer Abdul model for this campaign, shot by Jermaine Francis. Wearing both new pieces from this season and his own garments from previous collections, one is reminded that year after year we merely add to our internal canon of design. Each season becomes interchangeable, and by circumventing trend or gimmick one hopes these garments will remain wearable for decades to come.
Finally, we have also included our third unique design of Anglo-Italian own-brand footwear. A mountain boot that has city friendly sleakness, able to be dressed up like our heroes beneath a flannel suit, or down to further compliment our range of sportswear. It’s a design I've always pined for - and one we had no choice but to make ourselves.
We hope you enjoy this lookbook, the clearest distillation to date of our vision. From all of us at 57 Weymouth Street, we thank you for your ongoing support and wish you a very Merry Christmas.
