At Stuarts London, we take pride in truly understanding the brands we stock and also knowing the design process for each and every item. After learning about the upcoming brand, it was quick to see that each and every design that has an iconic turquoise label sewn upon has not only been crafted and designed exceptionally, but the materials have also been sourced with mindfulness and quality at the heart of each stitch. Interestingly, the brand opts for minimal branding across all their products which is a great testament to the products itself. With no distractions of elaborate branding the quality and design really speaks for itself.

At the heart of their AW19 collection, lays the made in England collection. With bold chunky knits and bedford jackets in both check and khaki. However, it was the full AW19 collection that featured shirts made in Italy and Chinos from Portugal. The key differences in the collections of made in Italy and England, is that made in England focuses on the rich heritage of fashion whereas the Made in Italy collection is sleek and stylish.
Continuing the bold statement of understated garments with a variety of jackets, tops and chinos all of which are not only designed by a group of elite designers in England. It was important to the designers to selectively source materials and production based on their experience within the fashion industry. In their other notable collections, we see products crafted from Italy, Portugal and more. The idea of introducing garments from Portugal, Italy and England is to mirror the ideals of high quality items with a true classic style that is truly timeless.
