Tinie in Tweed: Museum of London teams up with Savile Row tailors to create bespoke suit for London Collections: Men Ambassador, Tinie Tempah

 

 

The
museum has teamed up with Savile Row tailors, Norton & Sons and its
creative director, Patrick Grant, to create a new bespoke three-piece
suit for Tinie to wear during the LC:M fashion
shows that kick off in the capital this Friday (9 January). Whilst the
suit is made out of the Museum of London’s very own ‘London Tweed’,
Tinie’s style is evident throughout, as he chose everything from the
horseshoe waistcoat, to the tapered trousers and
a slim-fit single-breasted jacket with a flash of golden yellow lining
to create the suit. Following Tinie wearing his new suit on the front
row; the suit will be
acquired by the museum and added to our extensive fashion and
textiles collection (over 20,000 objects-strong) to document
contemporary menswear in London today.
  



The
Museum of London Tweed is inspired by London’s most famous fictional
tweed-wearing detective, Sherlock Holmes. While tweed is very much a
Scottish export, the history of the naming of tweed
is inextricably linked to London all due to an admin error in 1826.
