Jaguar launches heritage fashion collection

Jaguar D-Type

Seemingly bent on reviving the glory days of motoring, Jaguar has launched a retro-inspired fashion collection.

The range of Jaguar branded items has been created to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the marque's iconic D-type racing car, and the 1957 race winning model, the number three 'Eurie Ecosse'.

Ian Callum, director of design at Jaguar, said: "Occasionally it's great fun to celebrate the past, especially something as momentous as a winning Ecurie Ecosse D-Type.

"The collection is distinguished by the blue flag and draws on signature cues from the winning No.3 car."

Amongst the items is a 'Heritage '57' brown leather jacket, embossed with Jaguar's retro heritage logo. It's made from high-end leather from world-renowned supplier Pittards.

Also making an appearance is a racing hold-all, again crafted by Pittards. It's emblazoned with the '3' roundel of the Eurie Ecosse and features buckle detailing based on the D-Type's bonnet straps.

A selection of shirts and t-shirts, each designed with a retro theme, will also be offered.

In something of a historic resurgence, Jaguar earlier this year announced that it was to produce a series of 'lightweight' E-type racing cars to their original specification, to complete an original production run that was never finished. They're to be built at a facility at the company's Browns Lane plant, which will also look after bespoke orders from wealthy clientele looking to customise and maintain their classic Jaguars.

The heritage collection is available to order now.
