Since 1973, Gabicci has played a huge part in music and youth culture, proudly worn by the likes of the Specials and Bob Marley, more recently Labritnth and Maverick Sabre to name just a few. The definitive Gabicci look incorporates Italian inspired styling with an air of authority and class, brought to the UK by Gabicci founders Jack Sofier and Alex Pyser after a brief vacation in the Italian seaside town of Gabicci Mare.
Attention to detail and originality is always at the forefront of every collection, unique fabrics, buttons and linings, not to mention the heavy gold ‘G’ that remains such an iconic symbol. This soulful look is as strong as ever today, with a new generation seeking out heritage brands to fulfill revival trends. Following in the footsteps of the Mods, Rude Boys, Suede Heads, Rasta’s, Northern Soul and Acid Jazz boys, demand for the brand is at an all time high.
The Gabicci Vintage fashion message for A/W 16/17 pull between strong moody reds and dark maroons. Whilst gunmetal greys provide a more hands-on and crafted approach to this colour collection, a combination of soft yet masculine pinks bring a sleek, sharp contrast.
Distinct themes emerge in the tailoring category. The artisan and grown-up schoolboy emphasise twists on traditional suiting through layered silhouettes of casual styling choices. Vertical panels and stripes are key to the collection which highlight the need to remain true to the heritage of the brand as well as providing a contemporary collection.
