The Anglozine autumn/winter range is now available and judging by the success of the past range, is likely to be very popular.
The new collection goes by the name of Eel Pie, which, as you might have guessed, is inspired by the Eel Pie Island Jazz Club from the 1950s to the 1970s the home of British rhythm and blues. The emphasis is probably in the middle of that range, with a heavy 1960s vibe.
If you want to know all about Anglozine and its founder Reuben Billingham, you can check out the interview I did a few months back. It was an interview that went down very well, perhaps because it went some way to explaining the thinking behind Anglozine.
This isn’t a ‘Mod’ label, but the influences behind the label and the clothing come from similar points of reference. You could say this is Mod style for those who like to push the boundaries a little more.
Saying that a lot of the designs from the new range will fit straight into any stylish Modernists wardrobe, which hopefully comes across in the pictures above.
If you want to know more about some of the pieces in the new range, I have picked out a few that have caught my eye this time around.
First up, the Mock V-neck was something of a classic (originally in Italy) back in the mid-1960s and is recreated today in merino wool, retailing for £155.
The popular Jook knit has been reworked in a couple of colours, wt. a chest pocket and a quarter-zip collar. Made in Italy from a heavyweight Scottish Shetland wool, it sells for £195.
An Argyle merino knit with zip collar is made in Italy using the finest Italian yarn, selling for £240.
Based on a 1960s ramblers jacket, the easy fit printed micro-check cotton Richmond jacket with wool trim is £250.
The Trip over-head ski jacket in premium Italian Olmetex fabric is in various colours, all retailing for £250.
The Yard overshirt is also in various shades and with a concealed pocket and an easy fit. £160 for that.
Much more too. Have a look at everything at the Anglozine website.
Note that there are also final reductions of last season’s range at the Anglozine sale site.
