New & Lingwood and Lisa King unveil capsule collection

British luxury menswear brand New & Lingwood is delighted to announce a collaboration with London-based multidisciplinary artist and designer Lisa King.

Together, they have created a capsule collection of garments using reworked vintage textiles, which will be displayed during London Craft Week from 13th – 19th May 2024.

Lisa has worked with New & Lingwood’s Creative Director Tom Leeper to reimagine New & Lingwood’s signature pieces using Lisa’s unique Indonesian batik fabric collection, all expertly crafted by the atelier on Jermyn Street. Fusing British tailoring with Southeast Asian cloth and craftsmanship, the pieces will be on display at New & Lingwood’s neighbourhood store on Chiltern Street for the duration of Craft Week.

On discovering a vast archive of Thai, Indonesian, and Japanese textiles left to her by her late mother, Lisa embarked upon a journey to uncover the story behind the fabrics and felt inspired to honour the striking collection by incorporating Batik, the art of wax-resist dyeing, into her own textile practice. In 2023, New & Lingwood launched RE:NEW, which was foregrounded in craft, slow production, cloth innovation, recycling, resale, and repair processes. The initiative repurposes cloth off-cuts into one-off opulent and elaborate dressing gowns (a style that the brand is globally renowned for), as well as giving customers’ old clothes a second life. The synergy between RE:NEW and Lisa’s passion for preserving and progressing the art and sustainability of the ancient batik craft led to this new collaboration, which fuses heritage cloth with the finest modern menswear tailoring.

As Freddie Briance, CEO of New & Lingwood, states, “Our RE:NEW concept encourages customers to give clothing and materials a new lease of life rather than throwing them away. This exciting partnership with Lisa King encapsulates the core essence of this initiative and we are delighted to combine our expertise with hers to bring it to life in a way that is so distinctive. As custodians of heritage and craftsmanship practices, we have a duty to educate on and preserve them for the next generation. To do this across both British and Indonesian cultures is a truly unique moment that we’re excited to explore further.”

Lisa King states, “I am thrilled to be collaborating with New & Lingwood as part of their RE:NEW initiative. The discovery of my mother’s textile collection, which she gathered over 40 years of living in and traveling around Southeast Asia, has been a deeply personal and creative journey. It includes sarongs worn by my grandmother, and patterns hand-selected from artisans by my mother. It’s been hidden away for almost a decade, and now I’m eager to bring this incredible art form to the UK. I believe that cloth is a living, breathing thing—it should be seen, handled, worn, and enjoyed. Through this collaboration, we’re not just showcasing these beautiful textiles, but also championing the benefits of slow, handmade craft.”

To celebrate the innovative partnership, on 14th May, Lisa King will host an insightful conversation with Dr Fiona Kerlogue at New & Lingwood Chiltern Street, delving into the fascinating history behind batik fabrics. Together, the experts will give context to the historical use, colours, and motifs of the cloth and chart the use of batik in modern-day fashion.

  • London Craft Week takes place from 13th – 19th May 2024.
  • New & Lingwood x Lisa King designs will be on display at New & Lingwood, 14 Chiltern St, W1U 7PY.
  • Tickets for ‘Lisa King in Conversation with Dr Fiona Kerlogue’ are available here.

Celebrating outstanding British and international creativity, the festival brings together over 750 established and emerging makers, designers, brands, and galleries from around the world. A curated selection based not on price or fame, but on underlying substance. Plus, that essential dash of magic and inspiration that separates the great from the good.
