Beechfield has grown its headwear collection by nearly a third for 2015, launching 28 new Retail Ready caps, hats and accessories.
There is a particular emphasis on new and fashionable fabrics, with waxed cotton canvas, natural straw, and 100% soft-spun acrylic with soft-sparkle thread details just some of the highlights.
The new Waxed range introduces three classic outdoor styles in water-resistant 100% waxed cotton canvas. The B348 Waxed Bucket Hat, B350 Waxed Low Profile Cap and B352 Waxed Flat Cap will appeal to both the Country Set and the urban Barbour Brigade: each features a quilted cotton lining and comes in dark olive colour.
Boasting similar appeal, the B346 Urban Trapper in 100% cotton canvas features an EasyPanel front flap for ease of decoration, buttoned earflaps, faux fur trim, quilted cotton lining and is available in black and olive green. The similarly styled B344B Junior Trapper with 100% taslon outer is a kids’ variation on the adults’ B345 Sherpa Hat. Smaller in size than the B345, but just as big on street cred, the B344B adds buttoned earflaps for an even more fashionable look.
Bucket hats receive a welcome makeover in 2015. As well as the B348, Beechfield is introducing the B686 Reversible Bucket Hat in three colourways (turn the hat inside out for a total colour change), and the cotton lined B689 Safari Bucket hat in 100% chino cotton, also in three colourways.
Looking forward to summer, the new Straw range comprises the B720 Festival Trilby in paper straw, and the B730 Straw Summer Trilby and B735 Straw Cowboy Hat in natural straw. The three unisex styles feature a sweatband for extra comfort and are the new fun and fashionable choices for summer events, promotions, and the holiday souvenir/travel market.
Beechfield’s vintage headwear offering sees the arrival of the new B621 Linen Summer Gatsby in cotton/linen blend fabric, B624 Newsboy Cap in 100% heavy washed cotton herringbone weave fabric, and B683 Heritage Cap in 100% washed chino cotton. The Gatsby and Newsboy evoke the glamour of 1930s New York, while the Heritage Cap harks back to 1950s US college and sports teams, its washed fabric giving an instant worn-in look.
The return of the snapback is still gathering pace. Beechfield’s new 610c 5 Panel Contrast Snapback takes the popular B610 5 Panel Snapback Rapper Cap and adds a contrast peak and sewn eyelets in a choice of bold and bright colours. The washed cotton, six-panel B668 Suede Peak Snapback moves the design upmarket with its faux suede flat peak and the choice of super trendy denim blue colourway, (along with black).
Beechfield is making the knitted headwear market its own, and a raft of new Retail Ready styles will further enhance the brand’s reputation. The Bardot range comprises three stunning designs – the B403 Bardot Shimmer Beret, B404 Bardot Shimmer Mittens, and B405 Bardot Shimmer Scarf. The matching set is made in a glittering 100% soft-spun acrylic ribbed knit with soft-sprinkle thread detail. Moondust grey and stardust black colours add to the products’ movie star looks and allure.
Snowsports fans are well served in 2015 with four new styles that will turn heads on-piste and off. The feminine B417 Arosa Bobbie Beanie benefits from a subtly slouchy silhouette and luxury faux fur pom-pom, while the B435 Chamonix Combi Beanie boasts a chunky knit, removable pom pom and broad triple colour stripes. The B433 Slopeside Waffle Beanie and B434 Slopeside Waffle Headband introduce a distinctive crocheted fabric for an individual, hand-knitted feel, with a suprafleece thermal band providing extra insulation.
The new B457 Nordic Snowstar Beanie picks up on the enduring popularity of Fair Isle patterns. Available in a choice of five colourways, the B457 leaves plenty of space for branding and features a matching colour pom-pom as a suitably stylish finishing touch.
Heather and marl leisurewear is also enjoying a resurgence of popularity at present. The B420 Crofter Beanie with a crown featuring twisted yarn represents the perfect co-ordinated accessory for heather tees and sweats.
Tasteful updates on timeless winter styles, the B465 Chunky Ribbed Beanie has a tactile heavy ribbed knit fabric in seven muted fashion colours, while the B467 College Scarf is finished with tassel trim and is available in three classic colour combinations.
Two new breathable items conclude Beechfield’s roll-out of new products for 2015. The B361 Jersey Beanie is made from lightweight breathable soft cotton jersey with elastane, allowing this super-trendy slouchy style to be worn on even the hottest days. The B930 Morf Microfleece is the latest addition to the Morf portfolio: made in breathable, ultra thermal fabric, this multi-purpose style promises optimum warmth without weight.
All of Beechfield’s new Retail Ready styles, apart from the B361, B930 and the Waxed styles, carry the brand’s TearAway label for ease of rebranding.
