Following a successful crowd-funding campaign earlier this year, Patrick Grant officially unveils his first Community Clothing range exclusively on eBay.co.uk this month.
Grant’s initiative utilises clothing factories’ slow periods for its production to create jobs, harness specialist skills and regenerate businesses. It addresses important issues that British textile and manufacturing factories are facing, including seasonality of demand. The new range will showcase Grant’s ethos of quality product and authentic brand values to the eBay shopping community.
Tapping into fashion’s prevailing gender fluid mood, Grant has designed the collection to be largely unisex - keeping cuts casual, lines minimal and shapes soft. The classic block colour palette means that everything can be mixed and matched for instant, easy style.
As befits a British brand, outerwear is the cornerstone of the initial collection: practical shower-proof British Millerain raincoats in cotton twill have a soft silhouette that blurs the line between smart and casual, whilst a Harrington jacket channels the perennial cool of the British mod. Both come in chic navy and classic khaki, all fitting perfectly with the minimalist mood. Denim disciples will be devoted to the raw indigo selvedge denim jeans, with varying fits for men and women. Classic sweaters and scarves knitted in Scotland in the finest Lambswool yarn come in a range of beautiful colours.
The collection which includes knitwear, outerwear, denim and t shirts is crafted with care in a collective of specialist factories from across the UK, including the Cookson & Clegg factory which has been making clothes in Blackburn since 1860 and was saved from closure by Grant in 2015.
The anticipated collaboration offers shoppers the opportunity to browse unique, British crafted quality clothing at purse-friendly prices.
