Peachy Den's "Glory Days" Collection Pays Tribute to Women in Sport
Inspired by the triumphant success of England’s Lionesses.
Peachy Den just announced its all-new “Glory Days” capsule collection, set to launch in three parts over the next few weeks.
The collection draws inspiration from women’s football and vintage sportswear, comprising 10 limited-edition, one-of-a-kind tops crafted from scraps of vintage football shirts. Each shirt is hand-cut and sewn at Peachy’s London atelier, promoting circularity and minimizing waste. Alongside the shirts, the collection will see the addition of brand-new Mimi silhouettes, including track jackets and cargo pants.
A portion of profits from the capsule will go to Football Beyond Borders, an organization which works with young people who are passionate about football and from areas of socio-economic disadvantage. FBB aims to help young people finish school with the skills and grades that they need in order to complete their education and take the next step.
In terms of what inspired the approach, founder Isabella Weatherby tells us, “When designing this collection we were inspired by the success of the Lionesses and our love of the beautiful game. Women’s sport and football in particular have become a symbol of female power, with women and girls continuing to compete and succeed in a male-dominated space. At Peachy, we always strive to create clothes that empower women, and what’s more empowering than seeing the England Women’s team lifting the Euro trophy?
For their community, “Sporty, easy-to-wear pieces have always been part of the Peachy identity and favourites for our customers who always want their clothing to be versatile. Developing a football capsule gave us a great opportunity to explore more graphic bright prints, muted primary versions of our signature check print and introduce a PD19 graphic (the year we were founded).
“Our favourite pieces within the drop include 10 one-of-one collaged shirts from a deadstock supplier in Europe. Each was cut and pieced in our studio and then sewn by our sample seamstress Audra. We’ve also created a print inspired by vintage football kits, the digital print on a mesh/jersey crew neck is made from scans and collages from our team’s personal collection of shirts and scarves,” adds Weatherby.
Peachy Den’s “Glory Days” collection is now available for purchase from the brand’s website.
