“We’ve created exclusive details for the collection”
The duffel has remained a brand stalwart and its classic Monty design has been reimagined for John Lewis & Partners, in both the full and midi lengths. "The duffel coat is such a versatile design, which has adapted through the years but never compromised its authenticity," says Gloverall head designer Marianne Tse-Laurence. "In fact, our patchwork duffel is my favourite new piece – it’s so eye-catching."
Alongside the two duffel coats are five exclusive jackets – including a wool and jersey bonded short jacket, which is a new silhouette. A capsule collection of five pieces of knitwear includes a classic polo-neck, a fisherman knit and a chunky yellow ribbed jumper. The look is completed with a selection of beanie hats.
“I wear pieces from the menswear collection all the time.”
As for what should be worn with that all-important duffel, Marianne has the following advice for men: "Assemble a wardrobe of key pieces, including good-quality raw-denim jeans, a car coat and crew-neck wool knitwear."
