British Label Seeks Out Italian Mill For Collaboration
British menswear brand Duck and Cover has worked with Italian textile mill Leggiuno to produce a range of limited edition shirts.
The collection of four slim-fit button-downs features graphic prints including a floral spirograph design, flying ducks in an ottoman print, 1960s ditsy polka dot, and a Greek tile pattern.
Each garment, made using Egyptian cotton yarns, also carries a contrast lining and piping details.
The shirts were designed in house by Duck and Cover before being crafted in Italy by Leggiuno using century-old dying and printing techniques.
The young fashion label, founded in 1996, relaunched in 2013 with celebrity ambassadors, which to date have included judo champion Ashley McKenzie and SB.TV director Liam Tootill.
Leggiuno textile mill is over a century old and specialises in yarn-dyed fabrics, printed shirts and men’s suits. The in-house team creates around 3,500 new designs every season.
All four shirts in the collaborative collection are available to buy now, exclusive to Duck and Cover’s transactional website, priced at £65.
