the fabric

The slim nehru-collar savoie jacket is cut in a dark-navy, very light pure linen canvas. This quality of linen prized by luxury ready-to-wear creases less than the average. It is a hollingon classic, very resistant and pleasant to wear in hot weather. Used since ancient times for clothing, linen is a prestigious fibber produced in small quantities. Resistant, absorbent and hypoallergenic, it is the ecological fabric par excellence: its cultivation requires no fertilizer or watering: rain is enough. In addition, the transformation of the plant into yarn is carried out using natural processes that consume very little energy. Nicola and Stefano, who are both great colourists, thought of the beautiful dark-navy colour in Prato.

the cut

In case you don’t know hollington’s nehru-collar jacket, just try it on and you will not be able to go without it anymore. Patric Hollington designed it shortly after he opened his first store in 1974 and it soon became one of the brand’s iconic pieces.

At first, its cut was straight. But many of you expressed a desire for a slightly slimmer fit. Patric modified the cut, still keeping it comfortable by adding a back pleat that allows you a great freedom of movement.

Being detail-oriented, maybe you did notice that its buttons are made in a natural material. They are made either of horn or of corozo, a natural ivory that is actually palm fruit albumen.

Inside is a zipped chest pocket large enough to contain your wallet. Outside, three patch pockets are maintained by topstitched seams.

Hollington favours double, symmetrical seams to underline the architectural structure of the garment.

Inside are two pen pockets and four zipped pockets to slide your favourite items.

Its collar, now called ‘mao collar’ to make it standard, was first named ‘nehru collar’ by Patric Hollington. A nehru collar goes slightly higher on the neck than a mao collar – this is the key of its increased elegance. 

Are you not very familiar with the name of Jawaharlal Nehru? He is best know under the name ‘Pandit’ Nehru and was one of the figureheads of India’s fight for independence, opening the way to a secular and modern state. If you look at pictures of him, you will see that he wore shirts and jackets which collars resemble hollington’s.
