H IS FOR HURLINGHAM
KNITWEAR WINTER 2020
Our menswear knitwear collection embraces lux, tradition and touch alongside strong vibrant symbolic art graphics such as our heritage letter H (marking the goal post in the sport of Polo) and our polo player stencil artwork found in our intarsia styles. Even our cotton knitwear is elevated through a special finishing process to create a super soft ‘cashmere like’ touch.
The wool jumpers in the collection are our favourites and as we all know wool is such a unique spectacular yarn. At a microscopic level each wool fibre is like a coiled spring that returns to its natural shape after being bent giving wool garments a natural resistance to wrinkles. In contrast to synthetics, wool is an active fibre that reacts to changes in body temperature, it helps you stay warm when the weather is cold, and cool when the weather is hot and it can also absorb moisture which means less sweat on your body. Wool even ab-sorbs the odour molecules from sweat, which are only released upon washing and finally when a wool fibre is disposed of it will naturally decompose in soil in a matter of years, slowly releasing valuable nutrients back into the earth
In the mens collection we find many details which can be explored from subtle raglan rolled out seams to a half garter stitch beautifully knitted and finished with herringbone collar stitch to symbolize tradition and create timeless style.
We have dropped the shoulders in some styles and applied large graphics in the intarsia styles offering them as asexual pieces which sit beautifully on any gender, shape or age providing freedom of choice.
Our knitwear collection expands into true knit Polo shirts presented in beautiful soft touch yarns and subtle textures stamping our true DNA from the sport of Polo.
The Women’s Collection launching soon, consists of beautiful knitwear inspired from 1875 and includes loose silhouettes with dropped shoulders and longer sleeves alongside more fitted pieces with infused details such as our feminine hybrid crew and ‘v’ neck collars. The slightly increased necks achieve a timeless elegant look finished with subtle sportif tipping elements deriving from the world of Polo.
Structured knit elements are also found on our Womens RTW Polos which appear placketless at the front for a very minimal elegant look with both raglan and saddle shoulder options and elasticated at the hem for a sportif look.
