Pepe Jeans London x Cambridge University
Cambridge University is the newest inspiration for fashion label Pepe Jeans’ Spring/Summer 2014 collection.
After recently launching the original Cambridge University collection a month ago, Pepe Jeans has released yet another menswear line of clothing in association with the University. The primary range included preppy-inspired blazers and cardigans, in addition to inspiration taken from the University’s team sport culture, with rugby inspired polo shirts and t-shirts.
The newest collection offers a more laid back feel, with the label’s ‘kid brother’ in mind. The range includes accessories such as side bags and wallets, all bearing the institution’s logo. The new release is big news for the University and the brand itself, since it is the first fashion label ever to collaborate directly with the institution on a clothing line.
Gill Luff, Cambridge’s officer for brand, commented: “Pepe Jeans is unusual, its clothes are beautifully designed, inclusive, and made to high manufacturing standards, but they are priced to be worn by ordinary people. This is very important to the university.”
Notable items include the ‘Fitzeroy’ chinos, priced at £80.00, which seem in keeping with the University Blues’ formal wear and drinking society attire. The profits made from the business venture between the two establishments will be put towards contributions to university-wide sports initiatives and the UL.
Although the line aims to be a success through the University’s reputation for its preppy style, the Tab Fashion team is a little sceptical of the venture, with some of the pieces seeming a little outdated.
