“Since we opened our first store in Singapore in 2014, we’ve received an immense support and brand liking towards our Jack Wills Brand which we are grateful. The strong consumer demand for our products accelerated our plans for this second outlet. I have watched Jack Wills grow and flourish in the region and we are committed to provide even better quality products and a unique customer experience through the opening of our second outlet,” Peter Williams said.

Jack Wills was established in 1999 by founders Peter Williams and Robert Shaw in Salcombe, Devon, a small coastal town in the south of England.

For the Christmas 2016 collection, expect festive hues, soft textures and iconic “Made in Britain” outerwear pieces. The boutique will also carry accessories, homeware and gifts to suit every shopping need.

Jack Wills’ Christmas collection focuses on quality rather than quantity, and clothes that suit our lifestyle, for work, socializing and everything in between. The designers have invested a huge amount of time and energy into upgrading the fabrics, fits and detail of not only the core clothing –hoodies, loungewear, knitwear – but also seasonal items such as outerwear of the finest quality.

Jack Wills celebrates year-end Festivities with Christmas 2014

057 065 051 038

Jack Wills is celebrating Christmas in all its glory this year, embracing proper British traditions, with a ravishing and colourful Jack Wills’ twist. Our charming checks and notice-me knits will keep you company whatever the festive occasion, from blustery winter walks to decadent Christmas dinners.

In womenswear, the season starts with crystalline hues of white and grey, pale pinks and purples, before progressing into richer jewel tones. These pieces look best dancing under the Christmas lights thanks to the sequin detailing, lurex knits and metallic accents. A stand out piece is the Wardlow Biker Jacket in deep indigo metallic leather. The Jack Wills pheasant is given a nod with a rich blue-green feather pattern used across the range, particularly on party dresses that have been cut from silky fabrics for dramatic movement.

The festive spirit of Christmas parties can be seen throughout the new collection at Jack Wills. A playful mood takes over, with a variety of soft textures from mohair jumpers, faux fur gilets and velvet shorts. The Warmwell Peacoat in the women’s collection is the perfect nod to youthful British style, with its traditional houndstooth wool, leather football buttons and fluffy faux fur collar.

Always dedicated to bringing you the best of British, key outerwear pieces in the Jack Wills Christmas Collection were made right here in the UK. These waxed jackets are based on traditional field coats. The women’s Watchgate Coat has an additional cosy faux fur lining and deep pockets for cameras, notebooks and a thermos. The men’s Tayport Coat has soft corduroy and leather details, and a detachable quilted lining that can be worn alone as a jacket. The gilet, puffer, parka and peacoat have all been updated with the rest of the collection to offer a broad selection of iconic British outerwear.

Jack Wills is renowned for the impeccable quality of their men’s shirting, and this season will be no exception. For the party season, the classic Salcombe Shirt is made from polished Oxford cotton for a nod to traditional dress shirts, and then reimagined in modern eye-catching prints. Casual shirts are made from a heavier flannel for winter in richly coloured checks. Women’s shirts are reinvented in lighter, more feminine fabrications like the semi-sheer chiffon. Tops have been crafted from intricate lace to build on the quality, indulgent feel on the range.

Knitwear has also been given a festive twist. The finest Merino wool has been dyed in forest greens, berry reds and purples. The women’s collection features on-trend mohair knits in colour block graphics, while the men’s collection focuses on the cable knit jumper crafted from quality wools and cashmere.

In the run up to Christmas, Jack Wills are taking their role as a one-stop destination for all your gifting needs seriously, but with a smile. Underwear packs and matching accessories sets make wonderful stocking fillers, while the Sherpa lined hoodies and soft-as-can-be loungewear are at the top of many wish lists.

The collection is now available in store and online.
