A hooded, lightweight coat with snap button closures. Manaslu is cut in printed organic cotton twill and fully lined with silky chocolate brown acetate taffeta. Featuring an adventurous print by abstract expressionist painter James Watkins.
Manaslu's utilitarian cut is contrasted with the fine art details on its cream shell. With its funnel neck buttoned up, the coat holds a subtle cocoon shape. Undone, it drapes and falls like a parka.
The coat's name reflects the majestic Manaslu mountain in the Himalayas, the eighth highest peak in the world. In its print, rough textures and streaks of red and green are painted on top of a creamy-beige base, reminiscent of the rough terrain shed on the mountain's peaks.
Manaslu's print was originally a mixed medium on canvas artwork, of which James selected a small portion of the canvas to be used for the coat. With such a closeup perspective on the canvas, the coat emits a 'soft focus', rather than being sharply graphic.
The coat reflects the spirit of the Himalayas - beautiful, poetic, and ready for adventure.
Please note pattern placement is slightly different between sizes (size S/M pictured).
Made in England.
Manaslu is cut in Global Organic Textile Standard-certified organic cotton twill. GOTS is a professional standard with requirements throughout the supply chain, considering both ecological and labour welfare.
Manaslu's lining consists of acetate, a semi-synthetic material derived from wood pulp, combined with acids, then spun into fibre. Acetate biodegrades more quickly than plastic-based (polyester) fabrics, though it has been found as a contributor to ocean microplastics. Therefore, when hand washing your coat, we recommend using a Guppy Friend washing bag to capture the microparticles before they enter the water stream.
Our organic cotton twill is printed using the reactive digital printing method with azo-free dyes.
Each coat is manufactured at a North London based small-batch production studio. The studio specializes in high-end production, working with many emerging and established designers and brands in the city.
It takes seven hours to cut and sew just one of our pieces.
