Most travellers, especially business travellers or those who holiday several times a year, will relish the idea of being able to pack and unpack clothes that are stylish and, importantly, remain crease-free.
Thomas Pink have come up with a new traveller range for men and have gone the extra mile in proving that theirs is the ideal non-iron shirt to pack.
A short film starring adventurer and explorer Neil Laughton shows him hosting the world’s highest dinner party on Mount Everest. His packing essentials included crampons, climbing boot an ice axe, a climbing rope and a non-iron shirt to prove the point.
The company, part of the Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton group, have also created two non-crease reversible jackets and a reversible raincoat. Each item has a formal side and a casual nylon side and come packable into a zip fabric bag.
Frederik Willems, Head of Design at Thomas Pink, says:
“Our customers are frequent travellers and although time poor, they put a lot of emphasis on looking immaculately turned out – which is why we created a range of pieces that deliver on style and functionality in equal measures. The beautifully tailored non-crease wool/mohair suit, crafted out of the finest Loro Piana fabric, is the ultimate travel companion and a design hero this season. It’s perfectly paired with our innovative easy-iron Traveller shirts for an ensemble that’s as crisp on landing as it was on take-off.”
This isn’t the first time the company has used active celebrities to test out their traveller range. Blue by Ed Smith was a film featuring the journalist and broadcaster, former England cricketer and Cambridge Blue. This was followed by Made To Order by David Downton – a film featuring the fashion artist. Most recently, Thomas Pink launched a Rugby Edit in collaboration with former world cup rugby legend Ben Kay.
