For Spring Summer 2020 we’ve proudly collaborated with the National Portrait Gallery on two exclusive gilets. Both the Crew Neck and Bomber gilets are made from our signature ‘Lavenster’ water resistant fabric and quilted in our iconic two-inch diamond pattern. As with all Lavenham quilting, the wadding is made from 65% recycled fibres.
The contrast lining and matching press studs are finished in the same striking shade of ‘Tudor Blue’ which decorates the most popular rooms of the portrait gallery. The colour is also used for the embroidered ‘NPG’ motif on the back of each style, the design of which was taken directly from a mosaic floor found in one of the oldest parts of the gallery.
Founded in 1856, the National Portrait Gallery was the first portrait gallery in the world. The gallery moved to its current location on St Martin’s Place, just off London’s famous Trafalgar Square, in 1896. Today it boasts the most extensive collection of portraits in the world.
Outer: Lavenster Water Resistant Polyester
