For his second season with NEWGEN, Nicholas Daley presents ‘RED CLAY’: a collection that focuses on the alternate history of Tweed and its assimilation into Jazz culture.
Having previously explored Tartan and Jute, Nicholas spoke with Professor Jonathan Faiers about the complex history of Tweed, its usage and its impact upon popular culture. This dialogue initiated the collection’s concept and underlined Nicholas’ inclination of juxtaposing narratives.
Expanding his existing relationship with British manufacturing, Nicholas has developed a bespoke her-ringbone Tweed with Scottish fabric mill Lovat; widely recognised as the birthplace of Tweed. As with past seasons, Nicholas has collaborated with the established milliners Christy’s to craft custom Baker Boy and Pork Pie hats. He has also worked with the acclaimed Northampton Shoemakers George Cox on two bespoke styles.
