Chess-Inspired Fall Apparel

Percival Unveils 'The Chess Club' Collection for its Fall Release

— October 13, 2022 — Fashion
British label Percival has launched its new Fall/Winter 2022 collection, which revolves around the game of chess. After recently collaborating with Levenham for an outerwear capsule, Percival has returned for a fresh seasonal collection. The collection comprises knitwear, heavy-set shirts, work shirts, crewneck jumpers, and highlights like the ‘Waterproof Sherlock’ jacket and the ‘Ripstop Mac’ jackets.

The ‘Waterproof Sherlock’ is crafted to include a breathable outer layer that is completely weatherproof and features bound seams. This offering also comes with a large internal pocket made with Italian cotton and bonded backing. Another standout is the ‘Gambit Mohair Vest,’ which is a knit button-up with a chessboard design.

Percival’s ‘The Chess Club’ collection is now available on the brand’s website just in time for the colder months.
