Collaborations are pretty old hat now aren’t they? But that doesn’t mean they’re all bad. Ok, so there have been some mental mash ups in recent months, many of which were pointless or done to make some kind of weird statement. A lot of collaborations aren’t particularly wearable, or useful for that matter.
So when one pops into our inbox that is wearable and is useful, we can’t help but pay extra attention.
Founded in 1906, Gymphlex has its roots in traditional English sportswear. The One Nine Zero Six collection is inspired from this and is a return to British manufacturing for Gymphlex.
Designed by renowned menswear designer, Jeff Griffin, the company’s proud sportswear heritage has been utilised combining the innovative Griffin design ethos, the designer’s brief has been to create a contemporary and progressive vision for the One Nine Zero Six by Gymphlex brand.
Both companies have been working closely together for the past few seasons on various Made in England jersey projects under the Griffin x Gymphlex umbrella, although it is only now that Gymphlex have the exciting opportunity of putting this vision into practice under the One Nine Zero Six label.
Alongside an offering of styles in pure wool knits, fannel and cotton drill the One Nine Zero Six collection sees the development of the core jersey collection, produced by local Leicestershire based jersey fabric specialists and engineers. The jersey muted royal blue track pant and sleeveless crew work perfectly alongside Sanforised Oxford pull on sport shirts.
