The Jack Murphy Spring Summer 2015 Collection
This season is all about looking to the past for inspiration, embracing fond memories of lazy, hazy Summer days gone by and thoroughly indulging nostalgia to capture choice vintage influences and create evocative, emotive pieces with infinite charm and a real sense of ageless, organic style. As a brand whose design signature historically lies in the fusion of classic and contemporary influences, this latest trend of modern vintage synthesis is a match made in heaven for us, which we have delightedly woven into the collection in our own unique way.
Combining style and functionality is always a key element in our collections but for Spring Summer 2015 this hallmark is ever more pivotal as rainwear is simply transformed. This season sees some fantastic additions to this most pragmatic category, such as the lightweight rainwear range in Heritage, which are perfect throw-ons to fend off an unexpected shower, as well as the Sarah and Lynn, which are updates of the sell-out Tanya and Marian styles from 2014. However, the highlight of the waterproofs has to be the endlessly impressive Cotton Waterproof category. Delectably stylish and incredibly handsome, these four stunning styles are proof that rainwear truly can make a fashion statement, without compromising on functionality.
The lifestyle range is invigorated with some deliciously tactile, effortlessly chic cotton and cotton cashmere knitwear as well as a host of distinctive and unique in-house designed checks and prints in shirts and jersey to coordinate seamlessly with the rest of the range. Quilts are reinvented with brand new linings, clever detailing and inspired new design features, giving this classic country staple a welcome makeover. The wax offering this season sees the addition of a gilet in both men’s and women’s for a modern utility edge and we also welcome Heritage Navy as the new waxed colourway, which brings an enviably tasteful dynamic to the waxed category.
This season’s colour palette incorporates a vast range of shades, from rich, earthy greens and browns to regal Heritage Navy and refined Heather Grey; splendid oceanic blues to modern alchemist hues, with accents of chambray throughout for a refreshing twist; all of which are offset beautifully by sensational jewel tones of pinks, purples and reds in vivacious Summer Carnival, delicious Vibrant Lily and stunning opulent Ruby Red for an incandescent, unmistakably Spring Summer aesthetic.
