Geoffrey B. Small founded his label in Boston in 1979 and has since moved his studio to a small town in Italy, where all his products are fully handmade using ancient local techniques. He is considered one of the leading figures in the world of avant-garde and artisanal fashion. Various designers like John Alexander Skelton, Archivio J.M Ribot, Ziggy Chen and Uma Wang have been inspired by him and his designs. B. Small manages to stay out of the fashion circle and works completely independently. Adding to that, he started very early to consider his environmental impact and tries to use only environmentally friendly fabrics and techniques. He was also the first in the world to present a fully recycled collection.
Geoffrey B. Small‘s standard of quality is unmatched within the fashion world. His pieces are fully handmade from the most luxurious materials, to create, what are probably the best clothes in the world. All of this is combined with a unique aesthetic that is mainly inspired by garments from the early 20th century but not limited to that.
Geoffrey B. Small produces less than 500 unique items of clothing per season, all of them handmade from natural fabrics. Most of his pieces exist only a few times and are only available with one retailer.
This specific piece is a light cotton coat finished in classic beige. It features two pockets up front, small peak lapels and a row of unique antique buttons. It has a classic fit and is rather short for a coat. The construction of the piece is light which makes it perfect for the warmer months or as a layering piece all year round. As always, the garment is beautifully constructed and of the highest quality.
