The Gabicci portfolio offers three distinct collections, backed by four decades of heritage in the British menswear industry. Ahead of the brand’s return to Moda Gent, sales manager Kamla Patel guides buyers through the new collections for s/s 18.
Having carved a niche for itself on the smart side of casual for over 40 years, Gabicci has become one of the trade’s leading casualwear brands. This season, expect to see fine guage knitwear, woven shirts in luxurious fabrics, knitted tops in the brand’s unique plated cotton jersey, and a range of jackets to complete the ultimate weekend lok. “Styling is classic, yet modern and sophisticated,” says Kamla Patel. “Each design is offered in rich, vivrant colours, which are always on trend.”
The sportif influence continues to evolve for s/s 18, with knits working as a coordinated summer separates layered over jersey and woven shirts.
This season sees Gabicci Vintage concentrate on fine-tuned detail for maximum effect, from the top-stitched seams to the new house check lining. Core colours remain strongly in the vintage spectrum of dark blues and red, supplemented by softer pink shades and deeper tones of gold and burgundy.
“Gabicci Vintage has become an underground style leader, embodying a look adopted by the Northern Soul music scene,” says Patel. “The soulful look is as strong as ever today, with a new generation seeking out true heritage brands to fulfil revival trends.”
Quality yarns and fabrics are used throughout the collection; polo shirts are in either 100 per cent cotton, or Gabicci’s unique plated jersey fabric, while knitwear is in finely-knitted cotton with a cashmere-like finish, or high quality merino wool blends.
Maddox Street London
The newest kid on the Gabicci block, Maddox Street London was launched in 2012 to capture the younger fashion market. The collection is defined by sharp Italian elegance and quirky English styling, and named after the address of the company’s first ever showrooms in West London.
This season the brand progresses into s/s 18 with new graphic grids and sophisticated ombré checks combined with bold stripes. Jackets are slim, while looser weaves allow for a fresher summer feel that can transition into autumn.
“The designs have a young, fashion feel and fit,” says Patel. “The brand draws upon an enviable heritage and decades of experience, with its own quirky and distinctive style.”
