Style In Luxury Tweeds This Season

This season in the Marc Wallace collection British tweeds and textured fabrics are a key look. From vibrant colours, textured plains to the traditional. British tweeds have a great history, originating from the Scottish Outer Hebrides, tweed is hand-woven by crofters who would use their own wool to create the fabric, there is no other fabrics like it.

COLOURS OF VELVET – SUITS AND JACKETS

Velvet really can be a universal cloth. It is a great fabric for evening wear, your wedding or even to be worn casually. Some of our pure cotton velvets give a heavier handle that’s preferred for a more casual jacket. When looking for a luxurious finish, our silk mix and modal mix cotton velvets offer a smoother and more luxurious handle, perfect for an evening event, red carpet entrance or your wedding day. Colours available in the silk and modal mixed velvets are much richer and deeper in colour, are suited for a more luxurious look. The more casual velvet range is available in a wider collection of colours, from white’s to cerise pinks, so you can push the boat out with this colour pallet.
