Le Tricoteur Charcoal

Le Tricoteur for 6876  : À la Perchoine (a la per-shoy-n )

Guernsey Patois, or Guernesiais as it is known locally, is a very ancient tongue indeed. A descendant of old Norman French and developed in splendid isolation within the island it has become a true ‘language apart’.

The loss of Normandy in 1204 by the then English King John and the subsequent election by the Channel Islands to stay loyal to the English crown meant that the Norman French spoken by the islanders was destined to follow a different path to that on mainland France.

The quintessential fisherman’s jumper in charcoal Grey

Featuring a tightly woven worsted wool body with ribbing at the shoulder and side seam splits.Hand finished by local knitters trained and living on the island of Guernsey.

Le Tricoteur prides itself on using only traditional manufacturing methods handed down through the centuries.All our garments are unisex and our guernseys are reversible (they should be worn front to back and back to front on rotation)

À la perchoine : until the next time / see you again 

Duror Jacket

January 2023 Bshop & 6876 reconvened our relationship at the studio in the Brunswick Centre HQ.

The aim to produce unique and high quality products in collaboration for predominately the Japanese market.

As the buyers studied recent and archive garments they singled out a once sampled but enevr produced modernist pullover in a light technical cloth. The Bshop vision was to slightly remodel the scale and shape and produce in Ventile which immediately raised profile of the style.

From this meeting the Duror style was born as the signature garment of the collection which also features Le Tricoteur , Brady bags and Lochcarron Scarfs.

Scotland Project : Peter Scott

Peter Scott is a Scottish artist & shares our appreciation of Modernism.

This led to a series of works of Cadogan Square Glasgow which have been reimagined as T-shirt graphics and will take the form of a limited edition range; however we will let Peter outline in his own words.

‘I draw buildings, particularly buildings that remind of me of times in my life and the objects and experiences I associate them with.  These times are always tied to music and politics, like an Adam Curtis documentary I endeavour to make work like a collage of contexts. 

Any aesthetic I use to create the image is an attempt to base the image in the era I associate it with.  Basic colour schemes and the halftones resonate with the brutalist concrete landscapes, a modernist utopia.  The idea of what happened lurks beneath, through the failure of our society turning them into a symbol of dystopia. Lord Anthony Jackets, Judge Dread comic books, Threads on the TV, The Smiths, New Order, My brothers Mullet and bad metal albums,  Thatcher, The falklands, My Dads Renault and cords with Clarks shoes. 

 Getting older and wiser and listening to Bowies New Career in New Town and Jon Hopkins or some Mogwai and thinking back to Shoe gaze and my brothers record collection changing from Anthrax to The The Fall and Spacemen three via Pink Floyd then the Summer of Love then  High School and not going to school but buying a ten deck and getting a bus into town.  That’s where these works come from and more.  There’s always something beautiful in boredom”.
