As urban living becomes ever more hectic, clothes need to multifunction just as much as people. Adaptability is important and so is a sense of individuality and easy playfulness.
Looking at the history of textiles used by Savile Row tailors we realised that the variety of designs, colours and textures had been dwindling over the past few decades. It was time to take the best from the past, make it modern, interesting and relevant to life today.
Dashing Tweeds is a weave based menswear company creating modern urban woven textiles. Within our studio in East London we design and develop seasonal cloth collections using new woven structures on our hand loom. These are then produced by an appropriate British mill and released twice a year. Our menswear ready to wear collection explores the different shapes and cuts of traditional tailoring which showcase the woven textiles we produce.
All of our designs are part of a continuing study of the changing elements urban living requires of us. We look into the questions of travel through the city, the function of clothing, personal expression and technology. Our collections are responses to the questions of what to wear for today’s multifarious demands.
We have recently opened a flagship store in Mayfair at the end of Savile Row at 26 Sackville Street London W1S 3HE, showcasing and selling both our fabric and ready to wear collections. The shop is open from Monday to Friday 10am until 6pm and on Saturdays from 11am until 5pm.
