GANT and London-based artist Luke Edward Hall team up to create an exuberant capsule collection for fall
GANT and Luke Edward Hall have joined forces to create an eclectic collaboration that combines the best of American sportswear and traditional English wardrobe principles, with striking color combinations and luxurious materials for a modern preppy look. Luke Edward Hall for GANT will be available for purchase online and in GANT flagship stores in select markets from November 5th.
Inspired by weekends in the English countryside, the collection offers a wide range of clothes and accessories for both men and women. From sweaters and tweed coats for stalking through fields, to 1970s-inspired velvet suits and silk shirts for candlel it dinners, Luke’s colorful and unique aesthetic is perfectly infused into each and every piece.
“The collection I’ve created with GANT takes its inspiration from my home in the English countryside, and how I spend weekends there with friends,” says Luke Edward Hall. “I was inspired by pieces in the brilliant GANT archive. I also looked to my own wardrobe of bold patterned knitwear and vintage tailoring. The look is very English, both practical and elegant, with striking color combinations and playful touches.”
“The preppy fashion revival pairs perfectly with Luke’s extraordinary sense of color and composition,” says GANT Global Artistic Director, Christopher Bastin. “We’ve taken ideas from vintage pieces and the GANT archive, and merged them with modern silhouettes and punchy color combinations for a contemporary look that’s something new for GANT. This collection truly captures the essence of Luke’s vision.”
WELCOME TO LUKE’S WORLD
Luke is a master of design and dressing. His curious and playful approach to color and materials can be seen in thebeautiful interiors that he creates, as well as in his sartorial choices and through out this collection. There are felt patches of Luke’s own drawings to attach to lapels, while shirts are printed or embroidered with sketches of his home and the surrounding countryside. References range from the works of Italian Renaissance painter Filippino Lippi, to the daffodils that grow outside Luke’s cottage. This perfect weekend wardrobe is more than just a curated selection—it’s a personal invitation to share what inspires Luke in his work and in his life.
