Faulkner London | SS'14 Collection


Introducing, Faulkner London. A new and up coming British label, who are soon to be releasing their Spring/Summer 14 collection. Faulkner is inspired by an old fashioned sense of style, combining tailored silhouettes with contemporary details.

Their rakish sense of style mixes London-cool with a tailored but informal edge. Characteristic detailing, vintage prints and luxury fabrics that gentlemen will appreciate. Designer Luke Faulkner's roots are embedded in the 'Old East End'. This, together with a fascination of vintage style and London's rich history, bring endless inspiration.

This heritage has inspired Faulkner to manufacture the entire collection in London. Their fabrics are sourced from luxury Italian and English mills, and they work closely with local manufactures to ensure superior quality and craftsmanship is achieved. Their design isn't complicated and the fine details should speak for themselves.






































Their Spring/Summer collection (which is due to be launched soon, along side their website) is named 'Londinium'. The collection is modern and edgy, yet understated, with hints of the past. Faulkner's love of vintage eras, leaves subtle undertones in all of their designs.

Faulkner's family heritage include three generations of East End Dock workers, so a slightly dishevelled edge lurks over their designs, they are tailors for everyday clothes. One tradition of the East End was the 'Doggits Coat and Badge' race, from the uniform they had been inspired by the colours to accent details, and use subtle fishtails on their trousers, which come in slim, and double pleated wide-leg.

Shirts are offered in short sleeve with quirky deco era floral prints, or long sleeve with vintage style collars and modern fits. Jersey tops and knits are included in soft, luxury cotton, linen and silk mixes, with fine jacquard details and patterns. Key to their collection is their tie and bow-tie range, which will be two-tone, in contrast with the fabrics taken from the main collection.
