Fresh from working with adidas Spezial, Legendary Manchester singer Liam Gallagher has launched a series of new collaborations to mark his latest solo album, C’Mon You Know. The collection features pieces from Barbour, C.P. Company, Nigel Cabourn, Sage Nation and Snow Peak, as well as items designed from fashion students at Manchester Metropolitan University.
Stand-out items in the collection include pieces personally designed by Gallagher for Nigel Cabourn, as well as upcycled jackets produced with Barbour and a small collection with C.P. Company. Additionally, exclusive releases include a Sage Nation smock, and a parka, anorak and bucket hat with Snow Peak. Other pieces were designed after a Manchester Fashion Institure competition, with graphics chosen from winners Niamh and Aoife Dobson — who created CD-themed collags — and Haripraba Thavanendran, who’s work is inspired by the album campaign.
Launching the collection, Sam Eldridge, from Liam Gallagher’s management team, said:
“Liam Gallagher is not only one of the greatest rock stars of all time but a true fashion icon and pioneer who’s style and influence can be seen from high streets to festival fields across the country. We are delighted to be partnering with the iconic Selfridges store for these unique events, that celebrate Liam’s style, with limited edition pieces from brands – Barbour, C.P. Company, Finlay, Nigel Cabourn And Sage Nation – that have been part of Liam’s story since the beginning. We are also very happy to be collaborating with Manchester Fashion Institute, inspiring the next generation of innovators and creatives.”
The collection will be available on May 27 from Selfridges locations in London and Manchester, as well as the Selfridges web store.
