Toward the East

It is said that the Sun, the Moon, the planets, and the stars all rise in the east and set in the west. For the simple reason that the Earth rotates into the Sun's light - toward the east. This July, Jacket Required will again rise in the East of London, making its return to host our growing universe of designers and their spring/summer 2015 collections at our Shoreditch venue.

Today, we introduce our first cluster of brands from our extensive catalogue of stars, who each in turn are as luminous as the labels they sit between at The Old Truman Brewery for the seventh edition of Jacket Required.

Join the conversation on our FacebookTwitter and Instagram pages. Don't forget #jacketreqd.


Hancock Vulcanised Articles



British luxury label Hancock Vulcanised Articles produces handmade rubber-bonded raincoats in Scotland, inspired by the founding father of the British rubber industry Thomas Hancock.
 
The vision of two former Mackintosh employees, Daniel Dunko and Gary Bott, the collection reimagines Hancock’s life work, discovered in a book detailing his findings, inventions and patents, illustrated with Victorian etchings including designs of various articles of outerwear, bags, footwear and even furniture. This personal narrative inspires the clothing creators collection today. With an informed appreciation of heritage wears, the brand breaks away from tradition and in turn any Mackintosh cast shadow, employing an exclusive use of vivid colours, advanced fit and modern prints in a perfected concept of rubber bonded fabrics for the contemporary casual connoisseur.


La Paz



Time-honoured designs are reinterpreted by two friends André Bastos Teixeira and José Miguel de Abreu in their creation of Portuguese label La Paz.
 
Now represented in selected shops in the UK, US, Japan, France, Denmark, The Netherlands and Spain, the collection is a result of long research into processes around traditional clothing and production techniques, adapted for the modern menswear market to create one of a kind clothing with playful details, all reflecting an underlying Atlantic modern mood.


Han Kjøbenhavn



In Copenhagen, 2008, two life-long friends Tom Faith Hancock and Jannik Wikkelsø Davidsen set out with a clear objective to create superior products at an affordable price. Launching label Han Kjøbenhavn with a series of sunglasses, the brand soon gained worldwide recognition with its clean Scandinavian aesthetic and superior quality.
 
For spring/summer 2015, the brand introduce two new styles and four new colours to the full eyewear range, complementing its apparel collection, which boasts a mix of lightweight and high-performance fabrics with specially made graphics, all with a casual sporting aesthetic. This season, the Great Danes also relaunch its BLÅ by HAN KJØBENHAVN line, where classic indigo styles are combined with newly added details to offer superior quality and classic craftsmanship.


Portuguese Flannel



Portuguese Flannel selects only the finest fabrics, expertly brushed by master craftsmen to unparalleled softness. The label’s creativity and wisdom lies at the heart of a passionate workforce and a family business that spans four generations, to bring about a unique and comfortable touch.
 
Finding inspiration from the genuine people in the old towns of Northern Portugal across both the coast and mountains, the label chooses not to follow trends of the moment but instead embraces tradition, resulting in timeless yet contemporary design.


Brixtol



On a cold November day, three years ago, Gustav Kjellander and Emil Holmström sat in a small Stockholm kitchen with a realisation that it was time to put their experience within the fashion industry to use and launch a new project of their own.
 
A departure from tradition and breaking of stylistic convention fuelled the birth of Brixtol. The brand soon became a manifestation of the idea of an exploration into individuality and reinvention, a rejection of the dull, the timid and the old-fashioned.
 
With a progressive offering of focused outerwear, an unconventional influence of fashion, music and culture from Sweden and Britain’s 60s mod movement combine, carving a place for a continually evolving alternative classics for the independent and brave, while maintaining an iconic Scandinavian down-scaled feel.
