John Smedley, a 225 years old luxury brand with roots in the Derbyshire countryside (UK), introduced to the market famous Sea Island Cotton knitwear in 1922. Lately, they have been involved with dressing characters of the James Bond, Mission Impossible and a few other iconic movies (apparently, on and off the screen).
The latest Fall /Winter 2010 is described as a”menswear collection (that) draws inspiration from the personality of ‘The Archivist.’ Exploring the concept of a ‘collection’ in all its guises, the range blends well-loved pieces with future classics to create a textural and colourful anthology reminiscent of a passionately compiled archive. These will be timeless pieces to collect and to treasure”.
Pay attention to an expensive wear, traditional (timeless?) – “intricate” design and vertical stripes reveal an archivist, in disguise.
