Henri Lloyd x Oi Polloi Sailing Jackets
Long-time fan and stockist of Henri Lloyd, the anticipated collaboration between UK retailer Oi Polloi and Henri Lloyd is here. Originally designed by the founder of Henri Lloyd, Henri Strzelecki back in the 1960’s the Consort RWR (round the world race) and Viking Smock jackets are being reintroduced as part of the joint venture. Both designed for sailing, The waterproof Viking Smock is composed of Bri-Nylon in four striking colorways of yellow, orange, white and royal blue, whilst the Consort RWR jacket is the work of legendary Italian designer Olmes Carretti and comes in three nautical colorways: lavender, navy and sky blue. Made from the same material as the Viking, a nice contrast to the more traditional fabrics like wax cotton which have been seemingly omnipresent of late, the Consort is given the formal touch of a cord collar. The re-issued jackets are cut to a slimmer, more tailored silhouette when compared with the original jackets and are now available from Oi Polloi.
