Far Afield: “Cotton Town” Collection

For AW18, Afield introduce their latest collection, ‘Cotton Town’, a contemporary menswear collection where the brand delves back to its roots. Following the terrorist attack in 2017, the design team felt compelled to honour a place they hold dear, Manchester, England.

Inspiration comes from all directions, with a nod to the graphic designer, Peter Saville, and a wink to the emblematic music scene and Factory Records. The industrial revolution is subtly acknowledged, vintage textile prints from local fabric mills are unearthed, and of course the often-maligned English weather is heavily referenced.

Layering is dominant, with vintage tailoring, donkey jackets & overcoats meeting heavy gauge knitwear and a modern approach to shirting and prints. Some of the favourites in-store so far include the Factory shirt which features a repeated rooftop emblem and the Station fleece jacket pictured here in navy over the brick Workwear shirt.

As ever, Far Afield are committed to producing garments of the highest quality. The best yarns and woven fabrics are used, with flannels featuring in shirts such as the green Erasmus -pictured below – as well as herringbones, cashmeres, wools, corduroy & twills. These contrasting patterns and textures make “Cotton Town” one of the most interesting Autumn/Winter collections this year.
