Robbie on the new Farrell range

Robbie on the new Farrell range

Last month saw the Farrell Autumn/Winter 2015 collection hit the shelves in Primark stores across the UK and beyond. As the range does roaring trade with stylish gents across the continent, Robbie has revealed his inspiration for and highlights from the collection.

'Jack Farrell was my grandad,' he explains of the label's name. "He fought in the Second World War and he worked down the pit all of his life, after being a soldier. He had a tough life, but he always dressed well and his attire was always spiffy. That's what I remember the most'.

'This season for Farrell I wanted to explore good old British history and heritage - tweed / wool suiting and checked shirts, like my grandfather would have worn. Then pieces like the Harrington Jacket to the Mod-inspired parka are more iconic shapes that, for me, define looks from the '60s.'

Offering effortless style by updating wardrobe basics from leather shoes to suede jackets, the collection is firmly rooted in a sense of Britishness. Take a look below at Robbie's personal favourites, all available from selected Primark stores.
