2015 Developments – part 2 – Hong Kong

As mentioned in the first part of this trip when leaving Shanghai, all of our manufacturers have their own strengths. Different factories have different capabilities, so to ensure we supply you with the best garments possible we spend a lot of TIME, travelling and multitasking between our different factories.

…IT BEGINS

Catching up with the lads, father and son running a Family Business, maybe a big part of why we click.
Standing talking next to the rail of samples I designed these pieces 6months ago, I couldn’t help but look…first impressions were good, especially for prototypes!

Discussing a few thing with the boss and then we went straight to work.

Our cut & sew has always been on point, but the difference here is clear to see…LEVELS!

Our Caste tier consists of many couture pieces and has a runway inspired feel, concentrating more on panelling and the aréte fabrics used. This may be a change to the Jilted you’ve always known, but inspiration for both tiers comes from the same place, we just go down a different route regarding the design process.
Jilted’s ethos is engraved into every piece and our message carried throughout each collection.

Constantly developing new body shapes and pushing new concepts. When garments are released they may seem simple to people with no manufacturing experience, but I can assure you that this is not the case. Many hours go into building and refining each piece until perfection is reached…every millimetre makes a difference!

Wealth isn’t about having a lot of money, its about having a lot of options!
I’m going to pass on the first option…health is wealth! ;-)

Spotted this place on the way back, they’ve got job vacancies available…Gaz, fancy HK?

As I look through all the new samples its clear to see we’ve raised the bar.
Were looking forward to the release of the Summer drop to see your reactions.

Throughout different points in the design stages, elements of the past often surface. Although a lifestyle now abandoned, references that elude to this dark past will often be included in our collections, especially in our Prime tier.

I don’t do things by halves, so when I’m working, I’M WORKING…after a constant and intense day all round, we had a relaxing walk down to the bay. Chilled out and watched the laser show then headed inner city, table reserved.

We use our own bespoke fabrics, custom knitted to our exact weight and fabric content specifications. Our in house tailor hand draws every body shape here in the UK for our manufacturers overseas to use. We don’t need to out source for graphics/pattens etc, we just build our own. Jilted’s trademark Geometry has been seen often throughout our collections, heres the latest (and greatest).
As we mentioned earlier…THERE’S LEVELS!

Each time were in Hong Kong I make sure we hit the fabric markets, hundreds of shops with wall to wall fabrics.
With more options than you could every use you have to be very selective deciding what swatches you take, rucksacks can quickly over flow!
