Cathal McAteer’s London based label Folk has dropped by with a teaser of what’s to come in the weeks ahead. This shirting pre-collection is typically Folk, utilising an array of washed and treated cottons on very traditional silhouettes The shirts, as usual, are full of details such as origami pockets, tapered sleeves, layered panelling and finished with signature touches such as Corozo Nut buttons and branded side seam blocks.
Constructed from Japanese Chambray Cotton, the Printed Elbow Patch Shirt is something of a Folk staple with its definitive ‘elbow patch’ printed directly onto the garment in semi-translucent tan. Meanwhile, another staple design, the Szabo Shirt is makes an appearance in traditional Gingham check cotton with a purple-blue hue, using panelling in its construction to give a contemporary layered effect to an otherwise traditional shirt.
Another two returning favourites are the Zevon Overshirt (with embroidered characters placed throughout its premium cotton make-up) and the It’s All Over Shirt – available in a washed out Warm Grey Check or an oriental inspired Scallop Dot Print, both shirts take the standard Folk shirt block and use innovative finishes to add simplistic detailing to the pieces.
