Those in the Fashion world have been highlighting their Summer 2012 Presentations at the latest catwalk shows across the world. The 80s Casuals Grafters Collection for next Spring/Summer will be showcased here first, for all to see, rather than spend money on such presentations which in effect contribute to a higher price in shops. Also this gives our customers a chance to comment, via facebook, on the samples before they go into production.
The latest sample to arrive for next Spring is the Blouson which has undertaken a colour and style change. Out went the pale looking Blue to be replaced with a Midnight Navy. The shape has also been slimmed down. As this is a reversible jacket the next step is to change the inner to a Chambray fabric. The idea therefore is to have two different styles of Blouson, for the price of one, with the Navy outer having a left breast angled pocket and two U.S. Clip fastening side pockets. The left sleeve carries the 80s leather logo badge. The inner Chambray section has two buttoned side pockets and the embroidered 80s badge on the left breast.
We are producing two different Harrington style garments, the first being the Navy/Chambray and the second will be a Sand/Checked version. We await the final sample in the next month before we sign the design off for production.
