I wanted to share this with you yesterday but blogger went a bit awry with images. Anyways, here it goes...
There have been many a department store collaborations with heritage brands, but very rarely do two stalwarts of retail come together, like Liberty of London and Italian brand Woolrich.
Combining to very distinct designs, Woolrich has redeveloped their utility pieces with the iconic Liberty floral print for their Autumn/Winter 2010 collection.
Taking some of their most popular pieces, such as the fur trimmed lumberjack checked jacket and fitted blazer, the lining has become awash with a reinvigorated lining with the print that will no doubt become one of the seasons hottest brand collaborations.
Woolrich, now designed by Daiki Suzuki, started in 1830 in Italy and has been a staple brand for the country's hottest dressers, yet I think the dear-stalker hat will be one of the best selling pieces of the season. The pieces certainly tick the trend boxes of wrapping up warm and tailoring so its a winner all round!
