College Cool from Franklin and Marshall
For ten years now Franklin and Marshall have produced American college inspired casual wear which has more than a touch of vintage cool to it. Old school hoodies and 1970s inspired t-shirts are classic looks which Franklin and Marshall have perfected and now sell around the globe. Franklin and Marshall began life in Italy in 1999 when two creative young gents met for the first time and found they both had a passion for that unique all Americana lifestyle which is summed up in Bruce Springsteen songs and John Hughes films. This American way of life has always been very distinct from European culture but it fascinated Franklin and Marshall’s founding fathers Giuseppe Albarelli and Andrea Pensiero so much that they set about reinventing the laid back retro look. The duo chose to call the company Franklin and Marshall after stumbling upon an old college sweatshirt from the Franklin and Marshall College in Pennsylvania which exuded old school American style.
The Franklin and Marshall philosophy is that just like a photograph or souvenir, clothing should represent a place in time and lock in memories of a particular experience a person had when wearing the item. This is evident in their designs as the Franklin and Marshall range spans the look of decades and would look equally at home in the 1960s, 1970s or 1980s as it would today. Giuseppe Albarelli and Andrea Pensiero expanded their designs by trawling through iconic places in fashion such as vintage shops and stalls in Tokyo and Pasadena as well as recognising the trends that were right in front of them on the streets, wherever they travelled in the world. Thanks to the team’s imagination and flair for capturing a timeless moment, the Franklin and Marshall range was a huge hit and created looks that many other brands have replicated since its launch.
Now the Franklin and Marshall range includes polo shirts, t-shirts, fleece, knitwear and jeans as well as a full range of accessories including the iconic Jensen Lee gym bags which combine spacious bags with bright funky colours and tons of style. Franklin and Marshall have also collaborated with the legendary all American sports brand Wilson which creates the world famous American footballs and basketballs. Franklin and Marshall’s t-shirts range is particularly popular thanks to the unique retro designs which play on pop culture and include BMXs, tape decks, cassettes and DJs as well as the famous Franklin and Marshall logo t-shirts which epitomise understated college cool. The versatility of the Franklin and Marshall range means that a few key pieces will sort you out for the gym, the pub and dress down days at work – if you’re a student then the Franklin and Marshall range was made for rocking up to lectures and chilling out on campus.
