Thanks to our lovely Queen who is celebrating a impressive 60 years of reign this year, a lot of us will be treated to a fabulously extended bank holiday break this weekend.
If your looking for a little something to wear to your Jubilee garden party, then take a look at our favourite Brit fashion picks available from Catfish after the jump!
Parodying traditional 17th and 18th century refinery and blending it with subversive materials and designs from subcultures like the 1970′s punk scene, Vivienne Westwood is the ultimate poster girl for what it means to be ‘British’ in such a diverse contemporary society. Celebrate one of our most cherished British fashion designers by treating yourself to one of her Anglomania dresses; finished perfectly with a Comet Bas Relief Brooch or a pair of Lady Dragon VW3 Heart shoes.
When it comes to quality materials, design and craftmanship, you won’t find a better qualified brand than Barbour. Not only have they been producing jackets since Queen Victoria’s reign in 1894, but they are the proud owners of a Royal Warrant of Appointment; which means they are the official suppliers of clothing to a Royal Court and have earnt the reputation of being generally kick ass all over the globe.
If you really want to be a part of fashion history, then here’s your best bet. Catfish have a big range of Barbour wax jackets available to buy in store, and a few examples are now available online here. We’re loving the look of the Vintage Quilted Jacket available in Mid Blue, which looks perfect for horse riding across the muddy country fields!
Finally, if you’re looking to keep things a little more casual over the weekend then we recommend picking up a few fresh items from iconic British brand Fred Perry. Stemming from the career of championship-winning English tennis and table tennis player Frederick John Perry, the Laurel Wreath Polo shirt in particular became a staple wardrobe choice for Mods in the late 50s and hoards of teenagers in the 60s and 70s.
Nowadays Fred Perry design a huge range of quality tops, trousers, outerwear, shoes and accessories for men and women, as well as joining forces with other well-known brands and celebrities for collaborative projects such as the Fred Perry X Amy Winehouse Collection.
Wear the Laurel Wreath logo with pride this weekend by sporting a polo shirt, tee or bag of Union Jack colours!
