Style & Classics is an online vintage menswear platform and archive. I started this collection to document and champion design elements, fabrics and trends in clothing dating from the 1940s to 1980s. The main focus is on Italian-American knitwear, although reaches out into other areas of menswear. One part of the archive is offered as a resource for designers, collectors and media clients; showcasing label history, colour research and general oddities from past eras. The other side of the growing collection is available to purchase via an online-shop or through a variety of London-based stockists.
The collection has grown in such a way that a photo-book of the collection is currently being curated and compiled by myself and Jason Jules (fashion editor). Alongside the 200+ pieces of knitwear laid out, it will include other elements of design and label history. This book will be the first example of a detailed reach into this specific piece of culturally defining clothing.
Launch date – Mid 2018.
