You don’t need to be part of the shooting set to look the part in tweed. Fuelling the current resurgence in tweed’s popularity is a raft of contemporary new brands including Liberty Freedom.
Embracing all the handcrafted attributes of the Made in England thornproof cloth, Liberty Freedom has rewritten the style book with a directionally styled complete collection based around its tweed outerwear.
Traditional hunting jackets are reinvented with oversized storm collars, asymmetric front fastenings and punky touches including bandage strap details. The utililitarian aesthetic which informs traditional shooting jackets is not overlooked with cartridge pockets, gun flaps and back vents all included in the outerwear.
A sister range to traditional English countrywear brand Beaver of Bolton, Liberty Freedom mirrors the tailored, modern look of its older sibling and already counts Madonna and Kate Middleton among its celebrity customers.
Wholesale prices range from £59-£495. For more information call 01204 386824, or visit www.libertyfreedome.co.uk.Source URL: http://icip2idayusof.blogspot.com/2009/11/liberty-freedoms-new-twist-on-tweed.html
