This year marks the 50th anniversary since the release of Beatles‘ first album. Their first album, “Please Please Me,” came out half a century ago. To commemorate this special event, Bloomingdale’s has partnered with several UK designers to launch a limited edition Beatles Collection. Bloomie’s is featuring a wealth of Beatles products during its current “Bloomingdale’s Loves Great Britain” promotion and a company executive said many of them have not seen before. It includes mens and womens jackets, T-shirts and shirts.
“For me, the most exciting thing is that most of these products are completely original and have never been done before,” said David Fisher, Bloomingdale’s executive vice president and general merchandise manager for men’s and children’s. “We’ve spent an enormous amount of time and energy to create these exclusive products with our brand partners that share our passion for the music and cultural contributions of The Beatles.”
Turnbull & Asser Beatles Silk Pocket Square Box Set contains a really phenomenal range of products, including pocket squares in the packaging and likeness of all twelve of the Beatles LP’s, an officer’s jacket with the artwork from ‘Sgt.Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band’ as the lining, and a blazer lined in the ‘Abbey Road’ cover art. Hardy Aimes of Saville Row also created four new looks – one inspired by each of the Fab Four.
The Ben Sherman Beatles collection, which includes a jacket, chinos, an oxford shirt and a T-shirt, is in the Bloomingdale’s flagship. This year also marks the 50th anniversary of the Ben Sherman brand, so in matching with Beatles’ celebration they realised this stunning collection which include the burgundy Harrington jacket, blue five-pocket chinos, the oxford shirt with repeating Yellow Submarine motif, and the Yellow Submarine T-shirt. The pants and jacket are lined with Yellow Submarine-patterned material.
