GABICCI INTRODUCES SPRING SUMMER 2010 RANGE
Menswear brand Gabicci have unveiled an enviable separates collection for Spring / Summer 2010 inspired by the brand’s archives of classic knits, wovens and jersey polos.
Known for their smart take on heritage leisurewear, Gabicci’s collection pays homage to their original 70’s and 80’s designs: faux suede trimmed knits and intricately panelled jersey polo shirts, all with the iconic gold G lettering on the breast pocket. Emphasis is on the finer details to achieve an aspirational and desirable product: contrast piping, tipping and neat stand-up collars are distinctive trademarks.
Polo shirts are in 100% cotton, whilst the knitwear is finely knitted cotton with a cashmere-like finish or high quality merino wool blends. The colour palette spans classic primaries, vibrant modern brights and authentic 70’s pastels. Gabicci’s gold G logo is highlighted with a new trim detail; a small square badge of contrasting suede.
Each item has been named after a legendary footballing hero, for example “Best” is a lightweight grey melange polo shirt with contrasting black trim, while “Dobson” is a fine merino v-neck knit in navy with argyle diamond detailing down the side. This nod to footballing icons is indicative of the fashion choices of the football elite during the 1970’s and 80’s.
Kamla Patel, Sales and Marketing Manager for the brand, said of the new range: “With the current lack of smart wearable fashion on the high street, we believe our new collection offers a real alternative. Inspiration comes from our heritage, with many of the pieces modern interpretations of styles directly from our archives.”
