Jack Murphy launches in the US with Fall Winter 2021 Collection

Enterprise Ireland supported Jack Murphy combine country classics with city chic for U.S. launch

Irish clothing designer Jack Murphy has long been a favorite within the equestrian world both in Ireland and the UK with fans including Camilla Parker Bowles and Kate Winslet. This collection features waterproof, waxed and tweed jackets and coats, with a selection of accessories including skirts and popular Boston hats. Enterprise Ireland, Ireland’s trade and innovation agency, supported in bringing this limited edition collection across the Atlantic from the Emerald Isle.

“We’re very excited to see this new collection launch in the United States. It’s been great to see Jack Murphy’s timeless craftsmanship evolve over the years and this collection truly epitomizes classic outdoor clothing with urban wearability. We’re proud to support this classic meets contemporary launch,” Enterprise Ireland VP of Consumer Retail Anderson Pearce commented.

Renowned for its functionality, durability and attention to detail, Jack Murphy features perennial styles that are complemented with new seasonal textures and shades. Tweeds and wools are highlighted with leather, merging with softly structured outerwear and functional details.

Jack Murphy Sales Director Sarah Murphy says; “As a third-generation Irish family business, we are passionate about creating beautiful, purposeful clothing that is made to last. Our trend-proof, sustainable ‘slow fashion’ women’s and menswear collections focus on quality fabrics and styles. We are known for our signature tailored design in outerwear which feature waterproof and waxed jackets with complementary styles using Irish tweed and wool-based fabrics. We aim to capture a sense of comfort, self-expression and pride when wearing Jack Murphy and in doing so pass this joy and jacket on to the next generation. “Born in Ireland, made to last … Feels like home”.

This seasonal palette is inspired by the Irish landscape and brimming with radiant seasonal colours and rich textures. Colours span from soft moss, olive and winning greens to navy, Prussian blue and light blue to rose and blackberry. Vibrant checks and herringbone tweeds sit next to polished plain melton wools, waxed and waterproof finishes. The collection is designed to complement and coordinate with the range of perennial styles and the Heritage collection of waterproof and windproof coats and jackets.

The signature pieces of the collection include the elegant long tailored coat ‘Fran’ ($475-$600) named after Jack Murphy’s wife and Matriarch of the family, has a triple pleated and belted back, and comes in an array of nature-inspired shades from winning green, berry and light blue herringbone to Prussian purple check and traditional Donegal Magee tweed. The ‘Malvern’ long waterproof coat ($150) from their womenswear heritage collection plays on a traditional raincoat with contrasting colored seams and is available in blackberry, navy, and olive. The versatile belted ‘Cara’ wax utility jacket with 4 front pockets ($325) can be worn as a fashion statement or for outdoor use in olive, black and blackwatch.
