Physical Description

This outfit (Look 7) from Craig Green's Spring-Summer 2017 collection, is comprising a long sleeved jacket and pair of long, wide trousers. The garments are made of Indian woodblock printed cotton, pinstriped wool suitings, that have been diamond quilted. The front is is made from a print inspired by Moroccan bed sheets (blue and white geometric patterns with eight pointed stars in horizontal and vertical lines framed by four blue parallel lines) as well as other geometric framing patterns. Horizontal strips of fabric, in light grey, dark grey and dark blue, embellish the sleeve cuffs and the bottom of the jacket. The back is dark navy, with light grey vertical pinstripes, which is decorated with diamond and horizontal quilting. The shape of the garment is typical of Green's worker style jackets and wide legged pants, however they have been deconstructed and joined together again with cord, eyelets and binding to create a stylised and disjointed shape. This cord and eyelet detailing and deconstruction is on the shoulder of the left jacket sleeve and the outer leg of the left trouser, as well as on the right breast of the jacket and the knee and inner leg of the right trouser.



The cotton for this ensemble was woodblock printed in India. The wool suitings were sourced from the United Kingdom. The ensemble was made in London.
