Kinross Cashmere Introduces Expanded Menswear Offering for Autumn / Winter 2017 Luxury Knitwear Label Re-Launches Menswear Collection with the Addition of Made in America and Made in Italy Categories
New York, NY, February 2017 – Kinross Cashmere is pleased to unveil the new look of its menswear collection for Autumn / Winter 2017, featuring fresh, modern design, and the addition of new product categories including Made in America shirting, ties and scarves as well as Made in Italy cashmere statement ties. An evolution from the brand’s classic core collection, Autumn/ Winter 2017 welcomes the largest menswear offering from Kinross Cashmere to-date; designed for the cosmopolitan man who appreciates impeccably crafted garments that are truly built to last.
Kinross Cashmere’s Autumn / Winter 2017 collection effortlessly bridges the gap between timeless and current, under the lead of Kinross Cashmere’s new Menswear Design Director, Christian Arkins, a fashion industry veteran who has spent 20+ years designing for the likes of Ralph Lauren, J.Crew, Original Penguin and McGregor. By pairing an expanded offering of lifestyle-driven knitwear in new shapes and yarns with more fashion-forward statement pieces like chunky knit blazers and waistcoats, the latest collection emerges as the perfect comprehensive solution for a modern man’s daily wardrobe.
Inspired by the cosmopolitan epicenters of the world like London and New York as well as the rugged, rich terrains of the countryside, the design team at Kinross Cashmere created a color palette that is minimal yet rich. Neutral tones, shades of blue and tonal greys/blacks pave the foundation for the collection, while pops of bright orange, bottle green, deep burgundy and electric blue make a bold statement throughout. Choosing to focus his attention on to, ality, Arkins introduced special washes, unique prints and new dye techniques to the garment production process that captivate the eye and celebrate the perfect imperfections of color set atop supple textures.
While the collection centers on what Kinross has become best known for over the years – knitwear – this season introduces new luxury accents into the offering such as US-made button-down shirting, crafted using European fabrics including Italian Albini prints; 100% cashmere woven ties, and scarves handmade in the US using American fabric; as well as 100% cashmere knit ties, handcrafted in Italy. These new categories round out the Kinross offering, providing a man with everything he needs from the waist up as the cool of autumn sets in.
“Our goal this season was to build a really strong base from which we can expand in the future,” says Christian Arkins. “We want to continue to celebrate our iconic heritage in all aspects of design, always focusing on creating the best quality garments possible while also adding a unique touch to the finished products that bring the collection into the modern age.”
