On womenswear, bleached-out and washed-down tones come through on high-waisted jeans and youthful reworkings of mom-fits, training the trend spotlight firmly in the direction of the 1990s. These share rail-space with a reworking of the popular Carol jean, the ultimate straight legged jeans. The denim offering also includes the new Thelma skirt, an unapologetically rock ‘n’ roll inspired below-the-knee skirt in rigid, recycled denim with side seam splits.
Accompanying the denim is a range of prairie shirts featuring broderie anglaise trims alongside a selection of faded-out white and black cotton biker T’s with American eagle prints.
Over on menswear the FP20 range taps into a rebellious sun-baked Mid-Western mood with authentic denim styles at its core. New jeans shapes include the Bronx, a 1990’s-inspired straight fit jean with a longer in-seam. Washes are heavy, with stonewash taking centre stage alongside faded-out black and indigo blues.
The iconic Lee Rider is the season’s hero jacket, with sleeveless and zip-through versions staking a claim for top billing alongside a fully biodegradable option as Lee Jeans continues to extend its ethically minded For a World That Works initiative. Across the range the silhouettes are boxy and loose with the collection evoking the timeless spirit of old-fashioned American rebellion.
