Young Tailoring Brand Debuts On High Street
Fast fashion tailoring brand Noose And Monkey has unveiled its latest collection as bosses ready to enter the high street for the very first time.
The AW14 formal menswear range comprises of blazers, trousers, waistcoats, shirts and accessories in bold designs such as all-over floral and polka dot prints.
In a bid to separate stand-out and more classic pieces, the range has been split in to two lines. The larger, dubbed Evil Monkey, contains trend-led evening wear in skinny cuts and fabrics such as velvet. Meanwhile, the smaller Loveable Chimp line houses relaxed pieces in traditional British tweeds, herringbones and tartans.
The launch also signals the brand’s first move into footwear and outerwear through studded Chelsea boots, dress slippers and Oxfords as well as single and double-breasted coats in mixed fabrics and camouflage prints.
Company founder, Russell Gerrard, told FashionBeans: “SS14 was a record season for us on ASOS, having introduced formal shirts & accessories to our range of suits.”
“Part of our ethos at Noose is to push, season after season, the limits and boundaries of tailoring design,” he added.
Gerrard also revealed work is currently underway on a collaboration with an existing high street brand, due to be announced within the next few weeks.
Earlier in the year the label secured a deal with Arcadia-owned Topman to sell the collection, along with two exclusive blazers, in the menswear chain’s flagship on Oxford Street and online.
Prices start from £50 for waistcoats, £60 for trousers, £130 for blazers and £170 for outerwear.
