He also launched a new brand called Casely-Hayford , a collaboration with his son Charlie Caesly-Hayford in Spring/Summer 2009. The brand philosophy reflects the Casely-Hayford spirit which spans from 'English Heritage to British Anarchy', with an emphasis on 'Slow Fashion' and 'Innovation Through Tradition'.
The exclusive John Lewis range consisting of thirty pieces, and demonstrates unique British style to its best. Launching in March, this is set to become a huge success, with alot of press coverage on this already. Trench coats, blazers, knitwear shirts and sateen trousers ranging from £60-£400, all of which are beautiful cut and design. The Brogues have only 30 being produced, and are numbered, so i predict these will be a sought after purchase.

“The creative process behind this collection was both novel and challenging. John Lewis has perhaps the broadest customer base I have ever dressed, and so I relished the opportunity to create original, yet wearable clothes with cross generational appeal.” Joe Casely-Hayford
