Clements Ribeiro launches playful new range for John Lewis

Renowned for their mastery of wool, layering prints and clashing colours, husband and wife team Suzanne Clements and Brazilian-born Inacio Ribeiro have captured elements of their high fashion collections and created a wearable, chic and playful new range for John Lewis.

September 2011 will see iconic fashion duo Clements Ribeiro, who returned to London Fashion Week this season to critical acclaim with their unique dose of 'eclectic eccentric-chic', launch a 20 piece collection exclusively for John Lewis.

Highlights of the new exclusive John Lewis range include cropped high necked military jackets, a selection of two tone pastel cashmere cardigans sporting elbow pads and luxurious yet minimal navy, cinder and mink cashmere jumper dresses. Clements Ribeiro's simple modern shapes and original colour combinations make their designs supremely collectable and instantly recognisable.

Suzanne Clements, one half of the eponymous label, says: “The Clements Ribeiro woman is much like the John Lewis woman – she invests in great pieces and wears them as an expression of herself. The collection we've created for John Lewis is all about marrying style with functionality, luxury with simplicity. For example, the embellished jacket is trend led but incorporates a wool high neck to ensure winter warmth, just as the button-down cardigan is practical but features colourful elbow pads to add character - and a touch of humour!”

The designs incorporate all the admired Clements Ribeiro trademarks, from soft cashmere and merino wool knit sweaters and daywear jumper dresses to striking military inspired jackets which are perfect for effortless desk to dinner chic.

Jo Hooper, Head of Womenswear Buying at John Lewis, says: “Suzanne and Inacio are a pleasure to work with. Their talent lies in understanding what women want and knowing how to make them feel great. The new John Lewis range is made up of instantly recognisable staple pieces which are well-made, uniquely designed for John Lewis and, most importantly, accessible and approachable for every woman.”
