After teasing his upcoming Lavenham collaboration in his Fall/Winter 2020 lookbook, designer Nicholas Daley now gives us a closer look at the four-piece capsule that celebrates the icons of the U.K. Sound System.

Operating out of its Suffolk-based factory, British label Lavenham has become renowned for its quilting expertise since it was founded in 1969. This, plus a mutual commitment to expert craftsmanship with Daley, has resulted in an intricate outerwear capsule that mixes materials sourced from British fabric mills, Scotland’s Halley Stevenson and Osaka-based Shibaya fabrics.

Drawing on the influence of Sound System operators Jah Shaka and Aba Shanti, the two have crafted garments that would often be worn during the set-up of one of these important dub reggae nights.

Comprising a jacket, hat, scarf and two gilets, the focus of each garment has been designed to create a balance between style, function and practicality.

A further nod to the music that inspired this collection, the campaign features hip-hop soul duo Rago and Goya against the backdrop of their recording studio.

The full Nicholas Daley x Lavenham FW20 collection is available now from the Lavenham webstore.
