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.
