British fashion outlet Style Salvage was given the opportunity to explore the factories of Sunspel‘s Long Eaton factory and document production of the brand’s Sea Island Cotton Collection. The collection, which many regard as the pinnacle of undergarment creation, was designed and executed over the course of two years. Sunspel, which was established in 1860, has a long legacy of utilizing refined fabrics to create a sense of luxury in core basics. As previously reported, the Sea Island Cotton Collection sources its material from a rare, endangered crop of cotton exclusive to small islands in the Caribbean. Style Salvage explored the myriad drafts, samples and adjustments that resulted in Sunspel’s finest assortment of undergarments.
