Last Tuesday, Magee 1866 launched their womenswear and menswear collections Spring/Summer 2017. The Irish brand, known for their strong cuts, classic tailoring, and of course, their specialisation, tweed, showcased their two stunning collections comprising of classic cut jackets and blazers, tailored chinos, and their famous tweed suits. Over recent fashion seasons, the brand has evolved, specifically in womenswear with this being the first season with a full womenswear collection. A mission set by the design and retail director Charlotte Temple whose idea was to make the brand a go-to brand for women, and not just men.
“We are incredibly proud of this collection, which is a testament to the hard work of a talented and vibrant design team who have married truly contemporary design with all the heritage and quality associated with Magee 1866. We hope that other women will love it just as much as we do.”
The Spring/Summer 2017 collection is available in store now with new pieces arriving weekly, and also online at www.magee1866.com.
Inspired by nature and the Spring colour palette, Magee 1866’s womenswear collection offers beautifully cut, tailored pieces in naval tones, ranging from different hues of blue. Pinks, purples and creams also feature in the collection creating the softness for pieces perfect for the Spring and Summer time when a softer palette is favoured. The range comprises of different fabrics including soft silks, linen and cashmere. The lightness of the fabrics creates an airy feel to the collection provides customers with light-weight quality clothing for the season ahead.
Menswear has always been a strong collection for Magee 1866, and this season is no different. Inspired by the Atlantic coastline, the range offers relaxed, classic casual looks, in addition to their famous suits, keeping intact with the brand’s heritage. A naval tonal palette plays heavily in the collection, alluding to the colours of the Atlantic coastline. With varying pieces such as occasion suits, tailored chinos and knitwear, the brand has created the perfect lifestyle collection covering all the events a man may have to cover. The collection’s fabrics consist of natural silks, linen and lightweight wools and cottons, keeping in line with the womenswear lightweight fabrics for Spring/Summer season.
