The colourful prints are a mainstay in the latest men’s and women’s collection

The brand went a lil' whimsy for Pre-Fall'17 with cute monkey prints peppered throughout the collection, but for Autumn/Winter 2017, the focal motifs are feathers. Inspired by British gentleman naturalists and collectors, the feathers are just one of the brand's eye-catching motifs, being an innovator in print design. Its in-house design team came up with the new print based on the naturalists' drawings and taxidermy collections.


Available in both men's and women's collection, the vibrant prints are available in the form of all-over motifs for those who'd like to go bold, or subtle detailing for just a hint of added interest. For men, choose from a series of clothing (such as button-down shirts and nylon bomber jackets), shoes and wallets, whereas the highlight for womenswear are definitely the bright and bold tops.
