Ben Sherman’s Modern Classics Collection endeavours to “create fresh new styles from classic and traditional garments through its use of materials and details”. The brand has been building quite a reputation over previous seasons, and its latest fall 2011 collection has not let us down, with the release of some real stand out quality pieces.
Two of which I’m going to introduce to you now. The first garment that caught our attention is the new Harris Tweed Driving jacket. Here at FashionBeans we can’t get enough of this heritage fabric at the moment. From clothing to accessories; if it includes tweed within its design, it’s a must have for our wardrobe.
The inspiration for this jacket comes from the off duty attire of the workers of England’s largest lakes, the Coniston Water. This slim fitting jacket is made from hand-woven Harris Tweed, with cinch detailing on the back. Other key details include a quilted chambray lining, various pockets and corozo nut buttons.
The Fair Isle knitted jumper has taken a classic crew neck shape and modernised it by incorporating the ever popular (and on trend) Fair Isle pattern into the design. The knit has been produced using lambswool, which will keep you nicely insulated throughout autumn/winter. Features include contrasting leather elbow patches (again perfect for the Heritage or outdoorsy type trends), as well as a ribbed cuff collar and waistband details.
