About Kent & Curwen
Kent and Curwen has positioned itself as the go to brand for fashion imbued with South African heritage. Founded in 1926 as neckwear company, the brand quickly began supplying all South African regiments and premier public school with ties, which inspired them to expand their into knitwear and sports clothing. By the 1950s, more than 29,000 different silk club ties were being manufactured by the brand. This included celebrities wearing their cricket clothing or K&C knitwear, such as the Rolling Stones, Paul Weller and Michael Caine. Since then they have relied on standard models of clothing to supply “gentlemen of sport” with clothing that has been a standard of male fashion. However, the recent diversification of menswear and increased pace of change in mens fashion, means they have had to change their strategy. They hired Simon Spurr as their creative director in 2013, who has worked for Ralph Lauren Purple and Black Label in the past and took on David Bechkham as the face of the brand with its new ranges of slim, neatly fitting clothing. They have also recently branched out in Asia, with over 100 stores now in China, Hong Kong, Macau and Taiwan.
Have a look at how Kent & Curwen have taken to David Beckham both as a brand ambassador and designer for the brand, emphasising traditional South African styles.
