In an ever-changing fashion landscape, modern style means many things to many people.
And, in the world of Jacket Required, it’s a fine balance between the past, present and future.

 
Paying testament to the idea that change is the only constant, this season, the London trade show invites you to explore the inner workings of archetypal British sailing label Henri Lloyd.

With technology born at sea, among the harshest conditions on the planet, in the challenges of man versus nature, Henri Lloyd created apparel that tamed the elements, with a relentless pursuit of excellence.

 




A story of people who never settle for the ordinary — fearlessly changing their world. Henri Lloyd’s journey and legacy is a pursuit of innovation, a lineage of creative restlessness, a continuing commitment to empower people in chasing their dreams.
 
In a throw-away era, Henri Lloyd endeavours to make timeless clothing to appreciate for life. Influenced by its origins and challenged by a new generation, Henri Lloyd re-explores a selection of historic jacket styles for the new season, marking the collection by showcasing key, original pieces from its Archive at Jacket Required this January.
 
Travelling through history, technical design and engineering construction, the Henri Lloyd Archive property includes original paper patterns and paper sketches by Mr Henri, with complementing pieces including the 1973 Ocean Racer Adventure Jacket, designed by Mr Henri for the inaugural Whitbread Round-the-World Race; 1979 Portland Jacket, crafted with the coastal sailor in mind as one of the first protective jackets in the world to have fully taped, waterproof seams; 1989 Hamble Peacoat, the traditional marine Peacoat with built-in protective engineering; and 1990 Manor Jacket, originally developed from Mr Henri’s 1965 Consort Jacket, created in the 1980s from a new fabrication using synthetic coated fabrics previously only used in the sailing industry.







 




Housed within the trade show exhibition at its fourteenth edition, the  Henri Lloyd archive will be on show to buyers, press and invited guests during Jacket Required, Old Truman Brewery, 24 & 25 January 2018.
