Hidden in plain sight just ten minutes from Newcastle Upon Tyne’s spirited city centre and set back in the leafy confines of suburban Gosforth, the Garden House is a bright and airy two storey converted gardeners house nestled at the bottom of the garden, just over the fence from a cricket pitch, painting a typically English scene.
Surrounded both by artifacts from Britain’s military history and a celebrated career in design, this is where Nigel Cabourn and his team create each collection, inspired by the world which he has created inside the Garden House and his personal archive housed within.
In anticipation of the upcoming Nigel Cabourn AW14 collection, END. took a trip down the garden path, past the red telephone box and wrought iron furniture to pay the Garden House a visit and have a look at some of the highlights from the new season collection.
Grounded in the military issue apparel of the First World War, the Nigel Cabourn A/W’14 collection ranges from brand new designs that reinvigorate classic outwear to old favourites carefully reinterpreted, with the focus kept squarely on British materials and expert British manufacturing.
A fascinating environment that has birthed yet another fascinating collection, the latest designs from the Garden House will be launching online here at END. soon but, for now, take a look at some of our top picks from the Nigel Cabourn collection for AW14.
