It’s odd that the press behind this describes Gabicci as a ‘northern soul brand’. The label (or the best bits of it) have been worn on the mod scene for years, so with that in mind, the Norman Jay x Gabicci 40th anniversary collection should be of interest.

It celebrates 40 years of the label. I know, I thought it was older too. It certainly has more of a mid-60s look that an early ’70s one. But these are archive pieces, a limited edition curated collection in conjunction with DJ, Norman Jay MBE, who is certainly partial to a Gabicci.

This range features all of the original detailing you would expect from a signature Gabicci piece and what defines its ‘look’ – suede panelling, heavy knitwear and gold detailing for example. To complete the look each piece comes with special labelling and Norman’s signature embossed on every hang tag.

Not sure about pricing as I can’t find anything on the Gabicci website, but if you are keen, perhaps keep an eye on the Stuarts of London site, which is a regular stockist.
