Based on the northern landscape, textural layers, mid-dark tones and an amalgam of printed fabrics effortlessly gel the Edward Crutchley AW21 collection together. Named ‘Florizel’ after the original title for the British soap Coronation Street. No-nonsense Northern England has inspired Crutchley immensely over the years with the workwear, gutsy personas, and Edwards birthplace all participating.
Crutchley’s commitment to working with the aim of sustainability shines through in this collection working with the likes of Biddle Sawyer in Manchester on his digitally printed organic silk and Johnstons of Elgin on the Scottish Borders for his knitwear which is washed in the River Teviot, containing the perfect pH and mineral content for the optimum finish.
Fully immersing artisans within the collection including a list of highly disciplined individuals such as Stephen Jones Millinery, Judith Leiber, Victoria Rickard & Gianluigi Zocchedu. Creating a vast array of accessories to compliment the garments using a variety of techniques. Patent leather loafers with a convex heal made by Roker, finalize the stunning collection.
