This multi-coloured By Walid 'Delya' bead embellished silk patchwork coat is a marvelous number for three reasons. Reason one: This one-of-a-kind coat has been crafted in the UK from repurposed antique silk and features a patchwork design and black bead embellishment. Reason two: Complete with a cotton lining, this coat is part of the label's ongoing commitment to sustainability and upcycling. Reason three: this By Walid coat will work wonders with your new Dries Van Noten gold brocade boots and a Philosophy blouse, for in the words of Mr Walid al Damirji himself 'what's more luxurious than having a one-of-a-kind garment?'

MEET THE DESIGNER
The Browns' Edit of By Walid encapsulates what the London-based designer is known for best: beautifully tailored garments crafted using 'upcycled' fabrics. Walid al Damirji, a former creative director of London’s iconic fashion label Joseph and co-owner of London’s cult artisan bakery and chocolatier Cocomaya also heads the clothing label, ‘By Walid’. Presenting a small range of special pieces, hand-crafted from antique, vintage and ethnographic textiles which range from nineteenth century Paisley and 1920's Chinoiserie shawls to French cotton crochet, beautifully worn linen, silk tulle, leather and recycled furs. Texture, colour and shape define his men’s collections and they fit into a category as yet undeveloped: ‘upcycled’ fabrics and garments from the past transformed – never adapted - into pieces with a modern sensibility. Working from his small atelier in a converted early nineteenth century mews house, everything is completely ‘hands on’ in a way reminiscent of the traditional tailoring houses of Savile Row. As with those establishments, the fabric is king, the ideas developed not from fashion’s whim but from an understanding how the material works on the body.
