Andrew Buckler AW Preview Launch

Andrew Buckler AW Preview Launch Party, Spitalfields

Thursday 16th September 2010

The Andrew Buckler Store, 35 Artery Lane, E1 7LP

Andrew Buckler is an American menswear label, newly arrived in Spitalfields. The shop has a range of denim and casuals. The fabrics are from Italy and the pieces are finished with handworked detail.

Although Buckler started as a jean brand, it has since grown into a full-blown men’s line that is oozing with originality. Season after season, his collections are infused with an eccentric combination of rock-star flair and English chicness that appeal to many an urbanite hipster.

I have been following Andrew Buckler for several seasons now. Having been invited to the launch party to preview his collection I was left impressed with his label of classic contemporary with an English/American rugged edgy attitude.

Andrew Buckler has been dressing the edgy urban man since 2001 with his eponymous label, Buckler. His spring / summer 2011 collection was inspired by the classic Jack Kerouac novel On The Road. What this meant in terms of the jeans was denim that was faded and ripped, looking as if it had a few miles on the clock combined with a denim jacket and woolly hat to keep you warm whilst hitching rides cross country.

Great Turn Out
The collection conveyed a rugged ‘outwear material’, hooded insulated jackets, belted blazers, knitted sweaters, hipster with a1940’s inspiration of Classic t-shirts with braces with plenty of beautifully tailored suits and edgy denim.

The launch for the collection was a huge success and attracted numerous of fashion crowds as well as some media attention.
