Blue Blood A/W 08
BLUE BLOODS AW08 COLLECTION IS INSPIRED BY THE RESSURGENCE OF VINTAGE CLOTHING/ICONIC pieces that they have rebuilt with the passion of the originals and then delicately modernized and upgraded to suit modern tastes. The full collection is a celebration of classic style and this was inspired by studying a foundation of classic pieces and bringing them back to life. Both the menâ€™s and ladies collections are littered with classic pieces of inspiration from the 50â€™s/60â€™s/70â€™s and 80â€™s including Military, Industrial Uniforms, Active Sportswear and Denim Archives. Examples include 1960â€™s Fire Brigade Melton Smocks, 1950â€™s Officersâ€™ Uniforms, 1980â€™s Tracksuits and 1970â€™s 501â€™s.
