Sunspel is something of an under celebrated national institution. Based in Long Eaton, Derbyshire, the brand has spent the last 150 years quietly perfecting its trade. Evolving from a major textile manufacturer to a specialist maker of undergarments, the brand has a long tradition of quality craftsmanship and is one of the few British labels to have retained the capability of hand cutting and sewing many of their garments on these shores. Throughout their long history they’ve experimented with new styles, fabric structures, knitting techniques and have collaborated with the likes of Paul Smith, Margaret Howell, Thom Browne and Kris Van Assche to name but a few. It was the appointment of British designer JW Anderson and the opening of their first store on Redchurch Street that really brought the brand to the industry’s attention. While continuing to make the most of six generations of patented textile innovation and old school tradition, they have successfully re-edited their ‘hero products’ to incorporate modern detailing and fits.
Sunspel A/W'17 is now available in our Winchester store.
