First debuted on its Milan Fashion Week runway in January, Charles Jeffrey LOVERBOYâ€™sÂ AW23 collection, dubbed â€œThe Engine Room,â€ is officially hitting shelves. In Drop One, the London-based fashion imprint begins with signature statements, delivering a slew of pattern-clad jackets, sweaters, bottoms and accessories, among several other double-take-worthy apparel items.
Inside the line, mohair jumpers, boasting high-brightness stripes, feature built-in gloves, while graphic-embossed iterations host the brandâ€™s logo, front and center. Punkish codes fuel a pair of buckle trousers, with 10 belt loops circling both legs, as well as mini kilt dresses, with similar clasps at the waist. Classic check patterns cover scarves, kilts and long-sleeve tops, while a bold all-over â€œArtâ€ motif commands a slew of denim designs. In accessories, LOVERBOY places an emphasis on knitwear, with striking ear beanies, balaclavas and mohair gloves.
â€œThe collection has a â€™50s feel to it with [the influences] of John Byrne and teddy boys, and thereâ€™s also traditional maximalism,â€ Jeffrey told Hypebeast backstage at the January show. â€œKind of like, fierce, nuclear tartans, almost so wrong that theyâ€™re right. Weâ€™ve shifted our primary colors into cobalt, orange and gold, and weâ€™ve used Byrneâ€™s paintings as prints themselves.â€
The first installment of Charles Jeffrey LOVERBOYâ€™s AW23 collection is now available to shop on the brandâ€™s webstore. Prices range from $39 USD to $795 USD. Take a closer look at the range in the gallery above.
