Introducing the Iffley Road x Sunspel Collection

By Iffley Road. Posted: May 17, 2017

We’re delighted to launch a new range of kit developed in collaboration with British luxury label Sunspel.  Working with Sunspel on the collection we felt that we shared many values, particularly a love of subtle understated design and a strong emphasis on technical fabrics.

The collection centres on reimagining some of Sunspel’s iconic styles in our performance fabrics.  It takes design references from both the striped sportswear of the Amateur Athletics Association and the archive of mid 20th Century sportswear held at Sunspel’s factory in Long Eaton, Nottinghamshire.

The Stanton pebble grey polo shirt

In keeping with naming styles after some of our favorite running locations, the Sunspel collaboration continues this theme. The locations we chose are along the Erewash Canal which runs close to the Long Eaton factory.

The collection comprises three styles. A colour blocked T-Shirt, “Langley”, is made from our bespoke drirelase piqué and incorporates a central stripe in Sunspel’s unique fine cotton jersey.

“Stanton" is based on Sunspel’s button down Riviera style T-Shirt, also made from our bespoke drirelease piqué. Sunspel's original Riviera Polo Shirt was tailored for Daniel Craig in Casino Royale and has since become synonymous with James Bond style.

Finally “Trent” is a versatile short with button fly made from the same Italian microfibre as all our shorts.

We hope you enjoy this collaboration with Sunspel!
