FLINTOFF SHOWS HIS SHARP SIDE TO LAUNCH LATEST FASHION RANGE
AW15 collection is latest addition to his Flintoff by Jacamo range
As the England cricket team celebrates another Ashes win, prepare to be bowled over by the latest fashion collection from cricketing legend Andrew ‘Freddie’ Flintoff.
Modelling the range in what is arguably the best shape of his life; the popular sportsman proves he is fit for fashion while showing off his smart and sophisticated AW15 collection for Flintoff by Jacamo.
With Freddie’s style evolving over the years, the latest collection is a true reflection of his own wardrobe, incorporating wool and tweed blazers as well as a selection of chunky and fine knitwear.
Staying true to his simple approach to fashion, it also includes wardrobe favourites such as block colour t-shirts, polo shirts, long sleeve shirts, slim cut jeans and a military inspired jacket.
The most stand-out piece is the James Bond inspired slim cut classic black tuxedo, which will help men transition from day to night time effortlessly.
Freddie said, “Working on this range with Jacamo I’ve really realised how much of a positive impact dressing well can have on confidence. I’ve always liked to play it safe with fashion, but I think I got in the habit of sticking to what I know without be open to try out new things…even if it’s just a different colour.
“As much as I love dressing casual, there’s certain times in every man’s life when you should smarten up.”
Freddie is hoping the AW15 collection performs as well as his Spring/Summer range which saw sales up 15% on the year before.
Now entering its 8th season, the Flintoff by Jacamo range is available in sizes S -5XL with prices starting from £20.
Designer, Mandkhai Jargalsaikhan was born and raised into a family of designer knitwear in the country known for the world’s finest cashmere: Mongolia. Her intense knowledge of knitwear was shaped by her upbringing – surrounded by yarns, patterns, expert weavers and even celebrities in her parent’s factory. The family factory just happens to one of the largest manufacturers of cashmere in Mongolia and works with luxury fashion brands like Takashimaya and Gerard Darel, and they have dressed some pretty huge names: Bill and Hillary Clinton and Hollywood A-lister, Julia Roberts, who have all visited the factory.
All Mandkhai products are sourced and made in Mongolia using the latest technology. Manufacturing is entirely sustainable and no animals are harmed during the process.
Mandkhai is stocked at Wolf & Badger on Dover Street, at Cashmere Pur in Berlin and will soon be available online at Mandkhai.com
