Matt McCormack, Head of Menswear Buying at John Lewis, says; “Joe’s collection for Autumn Winter 2012 really exhibits his ability to create timeless pieces, with meticulous attention to detail at every stage of the design and manufacturing process. A star piece this season is without doubt is the BERWICK – a great overcoat that fuses together the traditional biker and the more formal Chesterfield overcoat.”
Joe Casely-Hayford, says; “Each season I aim to push the design-led components of my collection further. For Autumn Winter 2012 I have created a lining for my outerwear pieces that uses intricate designs from salvaged tiles. Each tile presents a pictorial representation of English history to create a tableau of cultural, craft and aesthetic attributes of the past 150 years.”
The collection includes 33 pieces spanning outwear, knitwear, shirting and trousers, with prices ranging from £28 for a pique crew neck t-shirt to £325 for a long bezique twill black coat.

A key piece for the season is the BERWICK. Integral to the theme of the collection, the overcoat fuses elements of the classic perfecto Biker Jacket with the traditional Chesterfield - two great symbols of British style.
