Katharine Hamnett, 1980s Faded Chore Jacket


Katharine Hamnett achieved stardom as a fashion designer in the early-1970s, after graduating from Central Saint Martins. Her early work featured a wide array of military references, usage of surplus material and pioneering ethical production. Her work, not as well recognised now, heavily influenced both British popular culture and politics, especially in the 1980s, through the strength of her work. She was also the first designer to win the British Fashion Council’s ‘Designer of the Year’ award in 1984.

Hamnets take on a classic French Chore jacket, adding details such as the synonymous rugby elbow sleeve, visible v-panelling on the neck, boxy fit, leather buttons and a vintage cotton. Finished off with an inside RiRi zipper pocket.
