London-based contemporary brand Drake’s has unveiled its latest collection in a winter lookbook, promising to shield wearers from the unpredictable winter weather. In a landscape filled with labels prioritizing quality over quantity, Drake’s continues its commitment to expert tailoring. The brand’s winter collection lookbook features intricately designed outerwear and layering pieces that echo the craftsmanship synonymous with British fashion.
The highlight of Drake’s winter collection is the exclusive batch of Rocky Mountain Featherbed down outerwear. Born in Wyoming and meticulously crafted in Japan, these pieces showcase tonal colors and natural fabrics. The collection also introduces multi-stripe Shetland knitwear, Italian-made raglan overcoats in dark wool herringbone, and vibrantly printed scarves sourced from Drake’s archive. The fusion of Japanese precision and British heritage results in a diverse range of winter essentials.
The eclectic collection features the Suede Shearling Vest with the shearling side of the suede facing inward to provide warmth, the Shepherd Check Tweed Five-Pocket Artist Chore Jacket, a nod to the studio clothes worn by artists in the 20th century. There’s also the Navy Wool Raglan Coat, a traditional, wider fitting outerwear constructed from 100% virgin wool, The Ecru, Green, and Navy Boucle Wool Zip Fleece Vest with a boxy fit reminiscent of traditional athletic wear, the Green Fair Isle Lambswool Sleeveless V-Neck Jumper that features geometric patterns in earthy palettes, contrasting hems, and a v-neck, and the Multi Patchwork Lambswool 6 Button Cardigan with a sartorially-inflected cut and a longer length, crafted from pure lambswool.
Embrace the fusion of British and Japanese craftsmanship to elevate your winter wardrobe with Drake’s Winter Collection. Prices range from $95.00 for the caps to $2,695.00 for the Suede Shearling Vest. Explore the new collection on Drake’s official website. In the meantime, swipe through Drake’s Winter Lookbook.
