Crew Clothing To Sponsor England Polo Team For Third Consecutive Year

Crew Clothing will be sponsoring the England polo team for the third consecutive year, as the team prepares to play for the Coronation Cup on the 25th July.

The match for the Coronation Cup will be part of Cartier International Day, the world’s greatest spectator polo day organised in association with the Hurlingham Polo Association. The HPA, the sport’s governing body, has yet to announce the home side’s opponents for 2010, but with England able to field a 26-goal team, the crowd will be ensured a fantastic match.

Action on the field is not confined to the afternoon though. Talented and up and coming England players will take to the field at 11am to play for the Golden Jubilee Trophy. As the standard of polo is now so high in the UK, this game is the perfect opening for the England International later in the afternoon.

As well as the polo, Cartier International Day will entertain some 600 guests from the world of stage, screen, literature and fashion over a gourmet lunch prepared by Anton Mosimann, All visitors can have the opportunity to visit the unique and extensive Retail Village which offers everything from a cooling glass of champagne to a luxury dog bed; from a beautiful polo painting to the very latest Audi.

Crew Clothing Company, in its third year of sponsorship of the England Polo team, will give valuable support to the England polo team in the form of team clothing, providing T-shirts, men’s polo shirts, jackets, bags plus miscellaneous other pieces. The company will have a stand at the event selling a wide range of the company’s prestige clothing for men and women.

Crew Clothing Launch GBR Atlantic Challenge Series For Women

Crew Clothing has launched the GBR Atlantic Challenge Series for women, a collection of sailing/nautical inspired casual clothing that had previously only been available for men.

Crew Clothing Launch GBR Atlantic Challenge Series For Women

The original source of this collection was the Crew Clothing Co founder, Alastair Parker-Swift who, as a member of the England freestyle ski team, was inspired to design and produce practical, yet utterly comfortable and stylish sports-inspired casual clothing. The GBR collection was therefore born, but with a nod to the coastal roots of the brand.

Historically, the GBR Atlantic Challenge Series has been exclusively a men’s casual clothing range. However, for spring 2010, the collection has been expanded to include GBR Atlantic Challenge Series clothing for women.

This has been a huge success for Crew Clothing, with the GBR styles being the bestsellers since the full spring collection launched.

The GBR collection is inspired by Crew’s heritage and nautical roots. The brand was born in the sailing town of Salcombe and these sailing roots have inspired the collection which has a nautical feel, yet is designed for everyday and relaxing or socialising with friends in comfort and style, with a distinctly vintage feel to the collection.

The GBR collection is where Crew Clothing’s key attributes and values of quality and huge attention to detail, are displayed. Each item within the GBR Atlantic Challenge Series has a huge amount of detailing – beautiful trim detailing along collars, pockets with velvet tipping and other Crew trademark finishing touches.

The GBR collection epitomises the Crew Clothing heritage, with a huge attention to the branding. The GBR hoody, for example, has a Crew Atlantic Challenge print embroidered on its reverse; with ‘GBR No. 93′ print down the arm (1993 is the year Crew Clothing Co. was founded). This ’93’ emblem features on many of the GBR Atlantic Challenge Series styles.

As well as the significant detailing, the GBR Series is all about comfort. The hoodies and sweatshirts are all have a soft, peached finish that makes them comfortable to wear.

The GBR Gilet for both men and women is one of the bestselling styles for spring 2010, closely followed by the women’s GBR hoody, available in navy, white and strawberry pink.

For men, the GBR Sweat has been a bestseller. Available in navy, sienna and marine, this has a soft peached finish, mid weight feel and all the Crew detailing and branding.

The GBR spray proof jacket for men and for women is also hugely popular, featuring the GBR branded sleeve and reverse, mesh lining and crew branded detailing throughout. The range also offers the women’s GBR cargo short, GBR polo and GBR stripe polo.

With the new GBR Atlantic Challenge Series for women being such a huge success and so well received, the women’s casual clothing collection will be continued for autumn 2010 and onwards.

Topman Launches Oliver Spencer Capsule Shoe Collection

Oliver founded his own label in 2002 and now boasts flagship stores in both New York and London as well as being stocked in some of the world’s most respected outlets. He wanted to create a collection that reflected his own wardrobe: a bridge between popular streetwear and traditional tailoring. The brand is an expression of modern man; his tastes, his touch, his style.

<br />

Oli’s main inspirations come from hunting and the military. He adapts bits of Americana and ideas from Japan into his cool, English aesthetic. He admires Sandy Powell, costume designer for the Martin Scorsese movies Gangs of New York and The Aviator, as much as any fashion designer.

Oli has gained a cult following due to his use of quality fabrics, characteristic detailing, modern fitting, old-school construction and exquisite craftsmanship-characteristics which has been perfectly demonstrated in the new range of shoes.

“Oliver has that innate skill of being able to reinterpret an iconic menswear item and with just the slightest tweak of proportion, colour and fabric, redefine it as a modern classic. This Topman collaboration epitomises this with a collection that is both referential yet distinctively new”, commented Gordon Richardson, Topman design director.

The collection focuses on one style of boot and one style of shoe, incorporating a unique brick red EVA wedge sole design which Oliver has championed through his own range of shoes to great acclaim. All the boots have been designed in a traditional desert boot style in either navy blue, stone or chocolate brown suede whilst the shoe is an oxford style toe cap in both navy blue or off white nubuck with white stitching.

The collection will be available from May 10 through the London and New York flagship stores and on line.
