“The idea of everything designed for a purpose. Perfect pieces, curated wardrobe that really last you a life time”
A faithful piece from the JOSEPH knitwear archive, the High Neck Cardigan Stitch Jumper is a classic design with modern flair. An essential wardrobe staple to wear throughout the seasons, elongated sleeves and cocooned proportions offer a casual elegance, refined in ribbed merino wool using our signature heritage stitching technique. A variety first used by fisherman to create garments warm enough to withstand British winters, the ‘cardigan stitch’ is a medium-thick weight rib that maintains warmth while allowing for and luxurious finish.
Masculine structure underpinned with a feminine fit, the Jackie tailored blazer is a true representation of our house design codes. Crafted from a luxurious Italian wool blend exclusive to JOSEPH, the half canvas construction uses goat's hair over traditional horsehair for impeccable comfort without losing shape. Finished in a customised fabric, the twill composition allows for structure without heaviness, a technique often harnessed in menswear for a refined and lasting finish.
A universal styling piece, the classic white shirt is any wardrobe's hardest working item. The Joe shirt blurs the lines between masculine and feminine, boasting a gently tailored shape refined in crisp Italian cotton poplin for a sharp, flattering fit. Lending itself to a variety of day to evening looks, it is as comfortable loosely styled with an upward cuff over leather trousers as it is layered under a two-piece suit.
A timeless wrap shape reimagined in a luxurious wool and cashmere blend. A simple yet sophisticated silhouette that retains its elegance at any occasion, it is constructed using a traditional technique that cements its quality. A double-faced interior layers cashmere on the inside as well as outside for a light yet luxurious finish that regulates heat. To ensure a superior finish, dye is expertly applied directly to the yarn for deep, intense colour that is designed to last the years whilst maintaining the softest hand feel.
Built to withstand the coldest temperatures, shearling offers a purposeful yet stylish solution to the winter season. In true JOSEPH style, the Brittany Polar Skin Sheepskin is a contemporary play on a classic design, with a clean, streamlined silhouette that feels understated yet luxurious. A soft shearling lapel is created with a leather reverse to be worn up or down, offering versatile styling options to a variety of looks.
