Part of the recent release of the Weavers Door Journal Issue No.002 which can be found here featured us visiting what was the main Post Office in Liverpool City Centre to shoot a selection of our Autumn/Winter Collection from the likes of Barbour To KI TO, Penfield, Norse Projects, Oliver Spencer and Common People. The Copperas Hill building which over several floors sprawls three and a half acres is adjacent to Lime Street train station and was formerly purpose built for the Royal Mail having served as a sorting office since 1977 until its closure in October 2010 where it remained derelict.

For us it’s a huge shame to see spaces such as Copperas Hill being left unused and wasted so we were glad to see it open its doors again as a venue for the 2012 Liverpool Biennial, a UK biennial of contemporary art festival which is in fact the largest international contemporary art festival in the UK. With the space being in good hands we thought the opportunity was there for us to use the amazing labour backgrounds as the scene for our Journal shoot. Headed by our head Journal editor Will we shoot the feature with our good friend of the store Mina Bihi, a talented Liverpool photographer who was more than happy to mix our clothing with the background of the Copperas Hill building. It was amazing for us to see how aesthetically pleasing the spaces were and the interior features such as the steelwork, colour piping and machinery which remains silent in the building. We got a great sense of hard graft shooting the feature as the building had a sense of manual labour and hard work around every corner.

Not only did the lads at The Sample cover our 1st Birthday party and get some brilliant snaps of the event with us celebrating reaching the landmark of an amazing first year in business, they were also kind enough to get snaps of our after party which followed the main event at our Liverpool Store on Harrington Street. To carry on the evening’s celebrations our friends and customers joined us at Santa Chupitos, a fantastic cocktail bar which can be found on the corner of Parr Street and Slater Street, be warned its not the easiest to find so look hard, it’s well worth it. Santa Chupitos (or the saint of little drinks) joined us in the Birthday spirit by offering everyone a special cocktail on the evening for one night only, it just so happened to be called “The Weavers Door” consisting of St Germain, Gin, Lime, Bitters, Ting and Soda Cream. The taste was refreshing, clean and went down easy, I know this too well as after having ten cocktails without any touching the sides.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Again, we thank all our friends and customers who lasted the distance and came to us to Santa Chupitos, to the lads at The Sample who got some great snaps of the after party celebrations which were in full swing into the early hours and to Santa Chupitos were good enough to host the after party, if you haven’t found yourself sipping their cocktails and dancing away to their resident DJ’s. Not found Santa Chupitos its well worth making a diversion on your next night out as there’s good times to be had!

Founded in Massachusetts in 1975, Penfield have a rich heritage in crafting high quality clothing designed to withstand the harsher climates which suits us just fine seeing as our British weather can never make it's mind up what it wants to do.

From its beginnings Penfield was first and foremost an 'Outdoors' company, Penfield's distinctive American Workwear heritage complemented with directional styling results in a perfect blend of fashion (Penfield have been around a while now and are here to stay so we should really replace fashion with style) and function, the Penfield aesthetic would sit equally at home be it in the city hussle and bussle or in the New England Wilderness.

 

Below is the Penfield Spring/Summer 11 lookbook "A Guide for Everyman" which presents the collection at the coast, providing a nice watercolour wash out background. The theme running throughout is clearly directed to seafaring, sailors, fisherman and other sea related stuff, makes sense for the setting of the lookbook being at the coast. 

 

 

 

   

 

 

 

 

 

 

For this Spring/Summer 11 Penfield being the outdoor heavyweights they are have come through with a nice lightweight clean cut collection, offering timeless designs in this subtle collection of outerwear, shirting and legwear showing they are still very much on point. Highlights being the lightweight outerwear jackets and some lovely summer friendly shirting using a subtle colour palette.

 

We can safely say Penfield have delivered another strong collection for Spring/Summer 11 that stays true to their 35 year old design statement "For Life in the Open" Hear hear!
