HYMN is a contemporary casual brand founded in London. Since 2014, HYMN have been taking the traditional values of quality and workmanship and reinterpreting them with a present-day aesthetic, creating clothing and footwear for the modern man. It has become a firm favourite at Ryan James Studio, and featured heavily in our recent Find Your Fit campaign.
The inspiration behind the Autumn/Winter 2018 collection is the great outdoors. HYMN say: “For us, the outdoors during autumn and winter months connotes activities such as escaping to the country, exploring and seeing nature as it bursts into myriad colours”.
The collection features pieces created using classic tweeds, herringbones and checks, bringing a contemporary twist to heritage fabrics and patterns. As with most collections this season, HYMN have made use of autumnal outdoor staples such as cord and fleece in a range of over-shirts and coach jackets that are ideal for Winter layering. One of our favourites has to be the khaki green Wattle over-shirt, worn by Andrew in the picture above.
Details within the collection include references to mountaineering, hiking, wildlife and foliage through prints and embroidery, as seen here in the Woods shirt worn by Nick along with the Lee hooded jacket. No winter collection would be complete without a rain coat, and the Jimmy style has been very popular, with it’s peak cap hood and eye-catching, coloured stripe lining, which Jim wears below.
These elements all tie back into a collection which, by combining unique pieces and timeless styles, makes HYMN stand out one of the most accessible and progressive brands today.
