The Autumn Winter 12 season is set to see the launch of Pantherella’s Icon collection of luxury socks in honour of its 75th anniversary.
The sock brand will be exhibiting the range at the Pitti Uomo exhibition in Florence, Italy, this month.
The new collection sees Pantherella reinstate key archive designs from over the years to celebrate its birthday.
Founded in 1937 in Leicestershire, Pantherella has along-established heritage of designing and producing men’s socks.
Authentically ‘Made in England,’ Pantherella socks are distinguished by a hand-linked toe seam. This traditional method seeks to provide an ‘exceptionally, almost invisibly smooth’, secret join.
The lightweight socks come in sea island or mercerised cotton, while fine merino wool from Australia is used for warmth without weight.
The new ‘ICON’ collection is made up of Herringbone, Houndstooth Checks, Pindots, Retro Fairisles and Patterned Ribs in luxurious classic colours of Grey Melange, Dark Olive mix, Black, Navy and Charcoal.
Pantherella will also be introducing its new AW12 line at the Pitti Uomo show.
The range includes collections City Business, City Business weekender and Mature Prep.
The City Business Collection focuses on yarns and textures, designing styles to compliment the well heeled city gent, including Birdseye, Pip, Tartan and Stripes in Merino wool yarns in Graphite, Sepia, Greengage, Kiwi, Damsons and traditional blacks.
For the new season, the City Business collection includes the distinguished Vintage range, which embraces the British classic shapes and patterns in Old navy, Bold charcoal, strong dark greys mixed with light camels, rich taupe’s and deep conker. The Retro Heritage designs have taken the ‘vintage era’ and evolved them into a modern iconic collection, taking urban modern shapes such as checks, diamonds, stripes and florals and combining a contemporary retro ‘Shoreditch’ edge.
Working alongside the City Business collection, the City Business weekender includes Marl Boot socks, Bright’s and Autumnal colours, complimentary stripes and Birdseye detailing. For the ultimate weekend luxury, the Pantherella Cotton Cashmere in Terracotta, Navy, Khaki, Petrols and light greys offers the hardest working business feet a ‘well deserved treat’.
Finally, the Pantherella Mature Prep Collection showcases classically strong block colours and argyles of Royal Red, Sweet Pea, Deep Turquoise, Charcoal, Navy and Black.
