Darren Kennedy launches new Louis Copeland line

Darren Kennedy has launched his second collection for Louis Copeland.

The stylish TV presenter first collaborated with the Irish tailors in autumn/winter 2013, and now has created a men's suit capsule collection for spring/summer 2014.

The new DK x LC collection features six suit styles in a contemporary fit, using fine fabrics sourced from Italy. Each suit features a 'man-about-town' bicycle motif as the exclusive lining for the range.

Kennedy said: “This new DK x LC collection is something both Louis and I are incredibly proud of. To see the phenomenal success of our first collaboration and to have received such a positive reaction, both at home and abroad, has been immensely encouraging. The new collection will appeal to a variety of men looking to achieve a slick yet contemporary look.

"We've incorporated the highest quality Italian fabrics that are both durable and lightweight, along with our signature broad peaked lapel to create a collection of future modern classics. In a DK x LC first, we've also designed a midnight blue tuxedo crafted in a super fine mohair cloth with a natural lustre. It’s looks the business and I’ve no doubt Daniel Craig will be itching to get his hands on one!"

Louis Copeland added: ”The DK x LC collections have been a huge hit with our customers. Although known for our classic tailoring, working with Darren has enabled us to show Louis Copeland fans that we also push the boundaries and welcome a new generation of suit wearers through our doors’.
