British brand Forbes & Lewis are thrilled to unveil their A/W14 collection after a sell out A/W13 season which will be available from 6th August on www.forbesandlewis.com designed for both men and women.
The quintessentially English label pays tribute to classic styling and intelligent designs with a contemporary, understated twist.Their design philosophy stretches to the idea that the foundation to any good product is in the choice of materials. F&Ls’ products are crafted from the finest hides and canvas, marrying a timeless aesthetic sensibility with function and quality. F&L only use 100% leather, authentically imperfect – found only with natural leathers. This ensures that all their leather items are hard wearing yet supple. F&L use different globally sourced leathers for different products, depending on the suitability of the fabric in accordance to the design. Their preferred canvas has a heavyweight, semi-waxy, laminated coating to add an added waterproof element. They have mastered their blend between canvas and wax to ensure their canvas remains soft whilst also offering protection against harsh weathers. The hardware is also of equal quality to the canvas or leather, every detail from the shape, to the stitching, to the strap, to the shade of leather – all need to work in unison.
Within the range available from 6th August – we think their black/neon colour ways are real statement pieces whether for a getaway, for work, play and just great for every day use. Take you pick!
Currently based in Katie’s childhood region of Dorset, F&L’s love of travel will soon see them splitting their time between London, Bristol and France. France is where they both worked and both appreciate its emphasis on the quality of life, rather than the speed of life.
