James Lakeland – Browns York Sally Trousdale March 20, 2019 Ladies Fashion James Lakeland presents timeless wardrobe staples with an up-to-date edge. Designed with the 21st century woman’s cosmopolitan lifestyle in mind, this line of covetable yet versatile styles are all beautifully crafted in Italy. James Lakeland- The Designer James’s passion for retail began when working at his father’s manufacturing business which specialised in luxury suede, leather, men’s and women’s wear. Learning the importance of quality, great design, interesting details and personal service, it was this “grass roots” experience and love of fashion that encouraged James to start his own women’s wear collection. In 2000, James launched his first capsule knitwear label. This collection took shape in luxurious cashmere and wool blends in rich tonal shades. The look was effortless elegance, providing great wardrobe basics: an instant hit with a loyal customer following. Today the James Lakeland brand is very much a family business that has expanded throughout the UK and available in key department stores and independents.
