New SS13 Product Now Online

Finally Spring is coming... well we say so anyway. We are a little bit late this season posting our Spring/Summer 2013 collection (recent snowy conditions made us decide to hold on to our winter collection just that little bit longer). However, we have had enough now and NEW spring styles are up and ready for you to view and buy all online. Take a look HERE

As you can see above, each tie has had its own portrait taken by Kate Davis - an incredible still life photographer. She worked with Sam Kerr to create these angular beauties and we are so happy with the results. Spring/Summer '13 was inspired by the theme of transparencies and we collaborated with artist Toni Davey to explore the idea. Toni's work is always based around the formular of a grid and so Sam honoured her process when deciding to display and pin each tie on this hand drawn grid.

Our seasonal lookbook was shot by Ali Mobasser. Having worked with Ali for SS'12 we were so excited to work with him and Russell Weekes again for this season. Ali's incredible bespoke lighting technique was perfect to capture the transparent ties and capture Toni's original artworks alongside the new Marwood fabrics - the most exciting of which were directly inspired or taken from Toni's artworks. Some of these are currently selling on Mr Porter. Here are some of Ali's lookbook photos for Marwood...

AW13 Collection now showing in Paris

Our new Paris home for the next week is in Touba's "SHOWROOM NEXT DOOR". Whilst everyone is running from show to show (freeezzzzzing) for men's Paris Fashion Week, we are pretty cosy in this appartment/showroom. We could definitely live here. Here is a sneaky peak...

Men's London Fashion Week Jan'13

So the year has kicked off to a good start with a 3 day presentation at the Hospital Club in Covent Garden. London Collections: Men is now in its second season and they showcased an exciting range of menswear over the 3 days which we were happy to be a part of. The accessory labels we were positioned alongside were all individual, inspiring and creative. Two brands that align nicely with Marwood are beautifully engineered cufflinks by 'Alice Made This' and umbrella brand 'London Undercover', both of which make their products in the UK. 

Below are photos of our installation. Our Autumn/Winter 2013 was based on a journey and a changing view from a train window - blurred landscapes, industrial stripes, cricket jumpers (reworked as a silk/wool jacquard cloth) and a kingfishers wing that was made using a photographic jacquard technique. We had a lovely response and a lot of comments about the lookbook which was shot by Scott Trindle. Marwood's muse since the beginning has been Jean Cocteau so we used this collection to celebrate his look, style, attitude and confidence. 

This collection will hit stores and our online shop in June 2013 

New this season we have launched a collection of mohair socks. These are socks to invest in. Unlike cashmere socks which have a tendency to wear quickly, mohair is long lasting and robust yet breathable, warm and luxurious. We are really pleased they have created such an interest already. Soon to be available on our shop online www.marwoodlondon.co.uk. If you like these colours, they will be especially for AW13 and be available from June 2013.

Welcome 2013


Having spent the end of 2012 travelling to Hong Kong, New York and various trips around the UK we saw in the New Year in true English style. Much needed. A New Year's Day walk on a wintery Devonshire beach watching friends surf, dogs run and skies shine after all the rain. We are ready to start the travels again - January begins next week in London for the biannual London Collections: Men. Marwood is launching the new AW13 collection in the accessories showroom where we will show the new lookbook shot by Scott Trindle and new product ranging from ties, bow ties, scarves and such like... 

Marwood will then move the collection on to Paris from the 16-25 January at the Showroom Next Door alongside brands such as Lou Dalton, Hillier, Moody & Farrell and Mr Hare (to name a few). The month will end with a trip to Copenhagen where we will show at CIFF fashion fair. We look forward to sharing our news and updates along the way. 

Cheers and best wishes to you all for a very happy 2013.

 Marwood studio on location - more to come on this in the coming months.
