Several is one of the newer crop of understated British labels entering the fashion world – its creative director and founder Graeme Fidler has roots at some of the biggest labels, including stints as head of menswear design at Aquascutum and, most recently, creative director for Bally. The brand’s latest collection takes influence from Radio Caroline, a station which lasted from 1964 to 1990 and broadcasted from ships on international waters in order to bypass record companies control of British music radio.

The station’s early DJs and followers had a distinct suedehead style – teaming sharply cut slim tailoring with muted knitwear, button-down shirts and nautical outerwear. Several has taken this influence and molded it into a collection of roll neck jumpers, pea coats, faux-fur collar zip-up jackets, sharp tailoring in casual patterns and slim straight leg trousers. The collection is available in stores now, as well as Several’s own web store.
