British designer Daniel W. Fletcher has presented his Fall/Winter 2019 collection, which pays homage to his roots by visiting traditional manufacturing methods that are deeply embedded in Northern English heritage.

Fletcher’s collection, dubbed “Postcards From the North,” celebrates the rich history of mills and textiles by using fabrics such as super-fine merino wools in Prince of Wales check and houndstooth designs. The designer also enlisted Abraham Moon & Sons mills — a manufacturer of luxury wools that dates back to 1837 — to create double-faced scarves, as well as the work of the photojournalist John Bulmer, whose pictures of the North in the ’60s appear on silk shirts, T-shirts and scarves.

Pieces showcasing Bulmer’s work, alongside the likes of selvage denim and printed details throughout the collection, reference the North’s long-standing industrial scene. Combining his contemporary aesthetic with details indebted with history, Fletcher “likens the area at that time to the uncertain socio-political climate Britain is faced with today.”

Standout garments from his FW19 collection include the “Prepare to Meet Thy God” shirt, the selection of wide-legged military-inspired pants with split-front hems, the satin boxing shorts and the reinterpreted denim jackets, which sport a heavy dose of top-stitching.
