M&S ORIGINALS:
REWORKED, REMADE, RESPONSIBLE MENSWEAR

M&S Originals is a capsule collection of iconic menswear pieces with a focus on considered design and responsibly sourced materials, inspired by our archive and reinvented for spring/summer 2022

Discover the latest collection

The M&S Originals collection offers carefully manufactured, responsible menswear: pieces from our archive reinvented with a focus on considered design, and that pay homage to our unique British legacy. The limited-edition capsule champions innovative materials such as recycled cotton, responsibly sourced leather, natural tea dyes and plant-based corozo buttons. The use of textured hopsack weave in the tailored pieces gives a relaxed feel to modern summer suiting.

“We redesigned each ARCHIVE piece, respecting its provenance, and created new patterns for a modern style and fit, applying leading innovations”

Karen Hall, head of menswear design

New nostalgia

Inspired by a pyjama stripe found in the archive, the Resort & Romance collection combines soft, bright colours with earthy neutrals. The signature stripe runs through the collection, adding a casual, retro-inspired look to men’s shirts, knitwear and jersey tops. The garment names reflect M&S’s origins in the city of Leeds, reinforcing the collection’s links with its heritage.

“The M&S archive is one of the most IMPORTANT company archives due to our history as a key British retailer. It’s hugely inspiring”

Responsible style

The designers worked closely with M&S’s in-house sourcing team to create a collection that reflects the company’s history of quality and use of natural fibres. The range utilises innovative recycled and responsibly sourced fabrics, linings, buttons and threads. Recycled thread and buttons made of corozo (a natural, biodegradable material) are used thoughtfully throughout.

“We discussed what the ULTIMATE environmentally responsible approach would be and aimed for that”
