After the success of the first range, it’s no surprise to see a new one. The Paul Weller x Sunspel winter clothing collection.
Update to original article:
The Sunspel sale has started and surprisingly, there is a selection from the Paul Weller clothing range sitting in it. So if you didn’t buy, now might be a good time while stocks last.
For reference, the Merino zip cardigan, the Merino tank top, the mac in stone, and the sweatshirts are all now heavily discounted. But these will sell out, so don’t hang about. I’ll be purchasing a zip cardigan myself.
Back to the original…
That first range was back in February 2021, and like the first collection, this is very much your ‘capsule’ collection for the season. Nothing too bold just sold designs from heritage maker Sunspel given the Paul Weller treatment.
The new designs are described as ‘indispensable winter fundamentals’ (although some would obviously work in warmer weather too), with some new additions and others a reworking of previous ideas.
In practical terms, that means the college stripe makes a reappearance, but this time on a rather cool zip cardigan (one for my wants list) as well as a sweatshirt. One for fans of an ivy league look.
Another Henley too with contrast detailing, a made in England t-shirt, a Merino wool tank top and that staple of the British autumn/winter season – the raincoat or mac. Various colour options for each design too.
Of course, this isn’t a budget range. That’s not Sunspel territory. It has been hand-crafting clothes since the 19th century and aims at the quality end of the market. This is the kind of clothing you invest in and look after. And if you do, it should look after you for quite some time.
So with that in mind, the pricing is as follows. A t-shirt sells for £85, a Henley top for £115, a Merino tank top for £160, a college sweatshirt for £145, a zip cardigan is £395, and a raincoat retails for £395.
All of the range is now available on the Sunspel website if you want a closer look.
