Cherchbi x Marwood travel bag, a classy collaboration
Sharpened Lead favourite, Marwood has collaborated with fellow English aesthetes Cherchbi on a travel bag for men, bringing a sense of timeless luxury and well-considered manufacture to a very practical item. Lined in a waterproof version of Marwood’s staircase silk jacquard, the bag itself is constructed from Herdwyck wool tweed, edged with saddle leather and featuring a sturdy-looking zip. The full collaborative set includes two Marwood-designed ties; one a bow. It’s refreshing to see a collaboration uniting two brands which are such great reflections of one another – Marwood’s fine art approach to accessories meeting Cherchbi’s use of the finest natural raw materials: wool, leathers and high-end fastenings. In fashion terms, the word collaboration these days usually refers to high-street names or faded giants cashing in on the ‘cool’ factor of younger, edgier designers, here you get the sense of loftier minds thinking alike.
The set of travel case, tie and bow tie is priced at £375. Individually the items are £240 for the travel case, £105 for the tie and £80 for the bow tie. All items are currently available on www.cherchbi.com and soon on www.marwoodlondon.co.uk.
