TM Lewin launches accessories range in aid of Prince's Trust
Shirtmaker TM Lewin is launching a new collection of men¬ís accessories as part of a Prince's Trust campaign to help young unemployed people.
The new cufflinks, ties and handkerchiefs have been designed by young designer Anthony Aitman, under the mentorship of the TM Lewin menswear product team and fashion designer Wayne Hemingway.
TM Lewin teamed up with Hemingway as part of The Prince's Trust Tomorrow Campaign, an initiative which aims to inspire young people facing high levels of youth unemployment in the UK.
Before receiving help from the Trust, Aitman was unemployed despite having a degree. With the help of the Trust he started his own fashion label and designed a collection of accessories for the shirt maker. The collection will go on sales in TM Lewin stores on 15 April.
Aitman said: “I wanted to reflect the rich history of TM Lewin through my designs, by looking at some of the artists at work at the time the first store opened in 1898.
“At the beginning of the process, I was worried that the products might not look the way I’d created them in my head. But working with such a talented team helped to make the designs become reality. In some cases they look even better than I could have imagined.”
