LYPH CLOTHING – THE POACHING SHIRT…

FALL  17 LYPH WANTED TO PRESENT A SHIRT THAT REMINDED THEM OF CHILDHOOD MEMORIES. CREATIVE DIRECTOR FREDERICK EDMONDSON REMEMBERS CUTTING LOG’S AND CLIPPING KINDLING WITH HIS FATHER FOR THE WINTER PILE OF WOOD, HE REMEMBERS WEARING HEAVY DUTY WORKWEAR TEAMED WITH WARM MILITARY SURPLUS GEAR OUT IN THE COLD FEB WINTER DAYS. THIS SEASON LYPH LOOKED AT CLASSIC HUNTING / WORKWEAR POCKET SHAPES TO DEVELOP THIER POACHERS SHIRT. THEY TEAMED IT WITH MILITARY CHEST POCKETS. COLOUR BLOCKING THE POCKETS BRINGS OUT THE PLAYFUL SIDE TO THE SHIRT, IT ALSO HELPED TO BLEND THE MILITARY TREND SUBTLY WITH A WORKWEAR TREND.

THE BASE LAYER OF THE SHIRT HAS A MIX FABRIC OF COTTON TWILL AND OXFORD COTTON SHIRTING. WE THINK ‘THIS GIVES A REAL SENSE OF HEAVY FALL TYPE DURABILITY’, SOMETHING THAT SITS BETTER WITH THE METAL PRESS STUD FASTENINGS.

LYPH LOOKS AT THIS SHIRT AS A REFLECTION TO CHILDHOOD MEMORIES AND HOW TWO TRENDS / IDEAS CAN SIT WITHIN THE SAME GARMENT. TO LIVE YOUNG AND PLAY HARD.
