Drake’s SS14 Lookbook
The SS14 Lookbook was shot on location at boutique weaving mill London Cloth Co in Hackney, London. The models are the mill’s owner and chief weaver Daniel Harris and our very own Masa Takatuska, Drake’s sales manager in Japan. You can view ties, scarves and pockets squares against a backdrop of spools and working looms – some dating back to 1850.
Explains Creative Director of Drake’s Michael Hill:
“We’ve delighted in championing ‘Made in Britain’ for 37 years and with the London Cloth Co we have found a kindred spirit; an operation with a passion for craft and quality but also striving to marry artisan traditions with progression and invention. And, of course, we love the fact the weavers are located in the heart of London, not far from where Drake’s makes its ties, by hand, in Haberdasher Street.
“The Drake’s look is stylishly playful and comprises pieces that men will want to come back to and mix up, time and time again. In sharing SS14 we also wanted a sense of authenticity- celebrating the craftsmanship of our wares and those who make it happen.”
The Drake’s SS14 Lookbook is a small representation of what will be available for the upcoming season, both in store at No.3 Clifford Street, London, W1S 2LF and online at www.drakes-london.com.
