James Long Revealed as River Island Studio SS15 Menswear Collaborator

River Island design studio was set up to collaborate with emerging UK design talent. Its past collaborations have been with Katie Eary, Joseph Turvey and most recently Baartmans & Siegel. Spring 15 sees them collaborate with one of London’s most interesting labels James Long. Textile expert Long is known for his intricate fabric combinations and his intelligent use of vibrant color which has set his label apart from others and created a vibe he is notorious for.

He brings his signature aesthetic to the 10 piece collection which features gold tone zips, applique stripes & geometric shapes. There’s a heavy sports influence – pointing back to my recent post – with basics like sweatshirts, hoodies and jogging bottoms getting the special Long treatment. There’s also this seasons sport luxe fabric of choice, neoprene in the collection.

The collection will launch with a short film by Menno Fokma in January during the London Collections Men and finally hit shop floors and online in February with a reasonable price range from £28 - £90.
