The dressing gown has emerged as a stylish key component in the modern man’s wardrobe. The inspiration to create the collection originally came from Geoff’s travels to Japan, but are essentially rooted in a European tradition. Designed for men who embrace a relaxed style at home with a contemporary feel.
DRESSING GOWNS OF DISTINCTION
The original idea for launching a range of dressing gowns came from an inspirational trip that I took to Japan in early 2016.
On returning it was my intention to create a collection of Men’s Kimono. But after careful consideration I realised that it would be better not to try to appropriate another country’s culture and instead I should follow the European and British tradition. The Gentleman’s silk dressing gown has long been an iconic and luxurious garment dating back to the 17th Century.
Each gown in the collection has a surface pattern design that I designed which has then been digitally printed onto a Lightweight Twill Silk. The style is mostly classic, featuring a shawl collar and sash belt in plain dyed silk. The gowns are designed, printed and fabricated entirely in England.
To inaugurate the first dressing gown collection this short promotional video was made featuring the menswear blogger David Evans of ‘Grey Fox Blog’.
