The appetite for brands collaborating seems to be endless, the consumer seems to love them, the press moan about them, but sceretly cherish them and brands themselves get so much out of them, its hard to see them ever falling out of fashion.
The latest in the eternal line of these partnership, comes in the shapely form of two Great British brands in Peregrine x J Shoes. Firstly, Peregrine began life back in 1956, but the manufacturing business at the heart of it, J.G. Glover, dates back to 1772 when Thomas Glover started his knitting business. Eight generations later the brand still remains with the same family to this very day. Peregrine is the evolution of the Glover family’s dedication to superior knitwear, the company continues to produce high-quality, fashionable clothing made exclusively within Britain. The designers at Peregrine combine classic styles and traditional materials with an innovative aesthetic.
J SHOES was founded in the British Midlands, its inspired by the centuries of quality shoemaking from the region. Seamlessly blending British heritage, traditional craftsmanship, modern design and independent style – J is an expression of personal taste and individual character. Taking classic silhouettes such as the Brogue or the Chukka, J applies a little unexpected colour, material or texture, to produce timeless shoes that showcase one’s true colours and character, inside and out.
J Shoes stand by their principle of never trying to fit in or conform to fleeting fashion trends. Instead, they takes inspiration from unique personalities and for each season creates shoes that are completely individual to help their customer express their own style and stamp their personality on them.
For this collaboration J Shoes have transform a classic boot into a British heritage design. Combining this with the trademark Dainite soles the menswear inspired style being versatile and classic.
Made in two colours – black leather with blue knit(above) and brown leather with red knit(below), this offers to take a modern spin on classics styles and the Bowden boot is no exception. To accomplish the look , Peregrine have created two contrast panel jumpers in their classic knit.
