Land Rover launches new fabric to celebrate Range Rover’s 50th anniversaryAugust 28, 2020
Exclusive jackets are going to be sewn from a special fabric. Their colors will resemble the original SUV that entered the market half a century ago.
The new material was developed by the chief designer of the British brand Jerry McGovern and the English studio Henry Poole & Co.
As a result, together they managed to come up with an original checkered pattern. Interestingly, when choosing a color scheme, the British were inspired by the colors of the original 1970 Range Rover. The production of the fabric will be entrusted to the factory in Somerset: the automaker plans to produce only 120 meters of fabric. This is enough to sew 50 jackets.
The material itself is woolen with houndstooth print. He is also “the tooth of a hound” (as it is called in his homeland in Scotland) or “Goose foot”. This is a two-color geometric ornament that still does not go out of fashion.
The new fabric palette includes blue, gold and classic white – all of which were found on the 1970 SUV. By the way, SUVs from the “anniversary” Range Rover Fifty series will receive the same shades, cult for fans of the brand. Their circulation will also be limited – 1970 pieces.
Previously, AutoTimesNews said that Jeep will release an “anniversary” edition of the Grand Cherokee SUV. The special version, created in honor of the 80th anniversary of the American brand, will bear the “speaking” name 80th Anniversary. These cars will have a special decor. Whether the manufacturer will get to the technical filling is not reported.
