Pretty Green Autumn/Winter 2013 Collection

Pretty Green is one of those brands we’ve had the pleasure of watching grow and mature since it first arrived in June 2009. The launch of any new brand always treads on somewhat uncertain ground, however it’s clear that things have gone from strength to strength for the label. Personally, we’ve seen a steady demand for the clothing ever since we launched it both in store and online.

The Pretty Green range is at its core split into two distinct parts, The Green Label and The Black Label. The Green label range is aimed at more casual pieces that are ideal for everyday wear whilst the Black Label is focused on producing more distinct offerings that benefit from unique fabrics with classical British tailoring.

This year the 2013 Autumn Winter collection from Pretty Green returns with more of the same classic styles that have defined what the brand is about – combining a seventies style bohemianism with Britpop attitude and edge. This ethos is clearly something that Gallagher and Pat Salter (Design Director) have managed to nail from the outset.

You can expect to see new patterned polo shirts, iconic insignia tees and leather jackets adorning this years range. So really – more of the same, but different. It’s also worth mentioning the popular pea coats will make a return with one or two very special entries as part of the black label collection. One jacket in particular taking its inspiration from that worn by the beetles at their iconic Shea Stadium performance back in 1965.

Napapijri Autumn Winter 2013 Range

As our rather unexpectedly sunny and hot summer of 2013 slowly draws to a close in the UK, we are once again looking forward to the latest jacket offerings in this year’s Autumn / Winter range from Norwegian brand Napapijri.

As one of our most popular outdoor clothing brands, and renowned for their hard wearing endurance apparel, the jacket range is always a key player in our winter collection and becoming ever popular due to its combination of both trend setting style and everyday usability factor.

For those of you that don’t know, Napapijri began back in 1987, originating in Aosta, (a region in the Italian Alps). It originally focused on producing backpacks and bags; it wasn’t until a few yeas later that they diversified into producing jackets.

The brand has managed to see huge global success due to its unique ability to walk a line between producing clothing that’s not only fashionable and trendsetting but is also constructed with technical excellence. So you can expect to see people sporting Napapijri in both urban settings and on top of the pistes of Mont Blanc.

This year Napapijri’s Autumn /Winter 2013 range sees more diversification, now with fitted leather jackets, stylish casual gilets and chunky urban knitwear and cardigans joining the collection. However, rest assured that the classic offerings are still present with the popular fur-lined open skidoo and winter rainforest jacket still sure to be popular choices for keeping warm this winter.

Pretty Green Autumn/Winter Now Available

Purple Oval is excited to announce the new Autumn/Winter 2012 collection from Pretty Green is now available right here online.

Drawing on the themes and tunes of the 1971 Rolling Stones album ‘Exile on Main Street’, the collection embodies the ethos of those heady days back in ’71.

While exiled in France to create the album, the Stones’ music experimentation spilled over into their attire, developing a look very British look that combined a bohemian eccentricity with a dandy elegance.

With everything from tees, knitwear, coats, jackets, shirts, tailoring and footwear included, Pretty Green have you covered during the colder seasons, ensuring you’re looking great and feeling warm.
