Look Mate London to launch their first collection of pearle cotton socks
This spring sees Look Mate London launching their first collection of pearle cotton socks, bringing exclusive materials into the equation in addition to the beautiful graphic designs of their existing range of socks. Best known for their eye catching design led collaborations with leading artists and designers, the new collection still heroes colour but lends itself to the lifestyle of the modern man who wants to take a more understated, yet ultra luxe approach to his socks.
Designed with five star luxury in mind, and applying the meticulous craftsmanship of Look Mate’s second-generation sock makers in Armenia, this new sock collection is made from the finest pearle cotton which has been twisted and mercerised to enhance fit and comfort. Mercerisation is a process which increases lustre in the fabric, meaning the pearle cotton collection is pure opulence. Ribbed weaving adds not only texture, but also added support and warmth for the unruly British weather. The socks are also hand finished with hand-linked toes and feature a discreet Look Mate London logo.
It is because of this material that each pair of Look Mate London pearle cotton socks has a silky feel and pearly shine to them. The on-trend colours have been chosen specifically to reflect the sartorial needs of the modern gentleman. Available in a longer length style and in five colours – deep burgundy, amber yellow, pink panther, purple rain and London town red – there is a colour to suit every gentleman, every day of the working week.
The new pearle range retains Look Mate’s philosophy that socks should be both fun and practical, adding a pop of colour to your day and a little flair to any ensemble when you catch sight of them on your feet. Look Mate’s ethos has always been to design functional items that elevate the every day. Theirs are socks that might spark a conversation make a connection or even take you on your next adventure. Each pair of pearle cotton socks is priced at £14.99 and the full range can be bought online at http://www.lookmate.co.
