A fashion duo to be reckoned with huh? Television and Fashion presenter extraordinaire Darren Kennedy has teamed up with Ireland’s most iconic tailor to design the “DK + LC” label . “This collaboration is a result of a long time ambition of mine. I’ve always wanted to create my own collection that had a very strong identity and I knew that, as THE number one tailor in Ireland, working with Louis Copeland would ensure the DK + LC collection would be both slick and contemporary”, said Darren Kennedy.
The duo have delivered an exquisite limited-edition collection, mixing fine fabrics and classic tailoring with cutting-edge fashion sensibility. Comprising half a dozen suit styles with two tailored overcoats, the collection captures this season’s shades of rich burgundy, strong plaids, exaggerated window pane checks, all in luxurious flannels, tweeds and silk-mixes. The new contemporary range features single- and double- button breasted jackets, both wide and thin lapels and opulent three pieces, each with an exclusive signature lining and the subtle hand-stitched collection logo, simply ‘DK + LC’.
Speaking on their collaboration LouisCopeland said ”the image of Louis Copeland would be perceived to be classic and Darren’s input really pushes the boundaries out. We’re very excited about this collaboration and anticipate a very positive reaction from customers and hopefully introduce a new younger generation of customers to the world of perfectly executed tailoring available at Louis Copland”.
The Darren Kennedy for Louis Copeland ‘DK + LC’ capsule collection contains five core and different suit styles. Choose from the Grey/Blue flannel oversized plaid three piece suit (€1,095), the light Blue Flannel two piece suit (€850), The Grey Birdseye three piece suit (€1,050), the window-pane brown Check Flannel double-breasted two piece suit (€799) or the two piece Burgundy Check Jacket and Waistcoat (€699).
