Connolly England designed by Marc Audibet

Dear Shaded Viewers,

Connolly is a British heritage brand that was established in 1878 and at its inception was known for producing superior leather skins  for the luxury automotive industry including Bentley, Aston Martin, Jaguar, Ferrari and Rolls Royce as well as leather upholstery for the Houses of Parliament and the Coronation coaches of the British Royal Family.

Connolly has reinvented itself with a fully-fledged luxury lifestyle and clothing brand housed in their beautiful new three story boutique on Mayfair’s Clifford Street. The iconic French designer, Marc Audibet, has created a sophisticated collection that is equally directed at men and women. The same pieces are created in true Audibet style and look effortless.  The season’s signature pieces include a navy melton double-breasted greatcoat with a pleated and belted back, high-waisted flat-fronted trousers that taper gently while remaining generous and fluid. Other pieces round out the collection the suede blouson, a simple dark suit, a camel rollneck and the essential perfectly cut white shirt.
