Mod-rocker Paul Weller has designed a range for young fashion brand Pretty Green with the capsule collection set to hit the shops in a fortnight.
The first Paul Weller Collection For Pretty Green will comprise six limited edition items but marks the start of a longer term relationship with Weller designing a larger collection for autumn 11.
Weller’s spring collection includes a high-shine zip biker jacket with a retail price of £175, a three-quartered length Indian linen shirt priced £125, a luxurious Egyptian cotton long-sleeved t-shirt at £40, a statement tank top with satin trim for £30 and pleated silk scarf priced at £45. The collection will be available to buy on June 23 from Pretty Green stores and online at www.prettygreen.com/paulweller.
The autumn 11 collection will include tailored suits, pea coats, knitwear, t-shirts, shoes and accessories.
Weller said: “I’ve wanted to design my own range for some time and Pretty Green felt like a good home for my clothes. The high summer capsule collection is a little taster of things to come as for autumn, I have designed a much fuller collection.
“I guess my main design reference is somewhere between ‘68 and ‘70. The clothes themselves sit between being smart and casual with quality materials and tailoring.”
