Old meets New: Kent & Curwen’s latest collection merges classic with modern

British menswear brand Kent & Curwen launched its latest collection in what they call a reinvention of British heritage.

Using British classics, the collection is designed for the modern man and is based around the idea that the past shapes the present and the present interprets the past.

A variety of jackets, including utilitarian, army and country, are refashioned from old cottons into masculine proportions. To add structure and texture, they are paired with pleated peg trousers in aged crushed cotton.

The collection was inspired by a conversation between David Beckham and Creative Director Daniel Kearns.

“It is that sense of modern life blended with a shared history that defines Kent & Curwen today,” says Kearns.

The collection comes in deep and washed-out colours including senape, khaki, collegiate, burgundy, petrol and royal blue.

The final touch comes in the form of the the brand’s symbols – the three lions and the English rose – which can be found on the collection in signature detailing and on rugby shirts.
