Ali explains about what is so different about Gabucci
Gabucci is all about colour and fit.
Everything we do at Gabucci is about making you look as good as possible. We source fabrics and choose patterns, trimmings and buttons to create our own distinctive short runs. These can be serious and sombre but much more often they are colourful and individual with delightful touches to make the clothes special. And because we tailor them in-house for fit, you know you will leave with the perfect fit.

Wool Week runs 7th of October 2019 – 20th of October 2019
Wool Week 2019 is a very good opportunity to promote an environmental message about wool being a sustainable natural product with many ecological benefits.
John Smedley are promoting their use of only British wool in the manufacture of their garments. The British designer label is also introducing a new video talking about Alpaca and Guanaco fibres and features a farm in Devon who supply them.
For John Smedley being able to trace the fibres back to the individual animal and herd is at the root of ensuring traceability. This coupled with a desire for maximum sustainability underpins their approach to manufacture and responsible retail.
Values we hold strong here at Gabucci. You can visit us to see the range in Bath, or you purchase though us online as we offer the John Smedley range online.
Van Gils feature their sustainable collection in joint video with Stella Era
Van Gils is another innovative fashion brand we stock here in Bath, who are concerned about quality and sustainability too. They already do everything they can be expected to do to reduce impact on the environment using the cleanest production methods and least environmentally damaging transport methods but they wanted to take it further, which is why they launched The Green Stitch, a new collection focussed on sustainable fabrics and materials with jackets made of recycled wool, and shirts from organic cotton. There are also eco-denim jeans and a variety of new innovative and sustainable products to come.
Van Gils also implement GOTS: the Global Organic Textile Standard. This is the worldwide leading textile processing standard for organic fibers, including ecological and social criteria, backed up by independent certification of the entire textile supply chain.
They can guarantee the fabrics used are organic and ecological and it aids greater transparency in the fashion industry.
This is becoming more important to our customers at Gabucci and it is important to be able to offer a high quality sustainable option as much as possible and to encourage customers pick garments made with organic wool, cotton and even recycled polyester.
British wool, sustainability, traceability and reducing environmental impact are hugely important to the brand, so sourcing organic wool from known farmers is an essential part of the product development at John Smedley.
This video from John Smedley is about introducing the world’s finest fibres, starting with British wool.
John Smedley have been committed to sourcing the finest, noble fibres since 1784 and have now introduced their first British Wool collection, featuring Bluefaced Leicester sheep’s wool.
This soft, lustrous wool is one of the finest available in England, and sustainably farmed in Yorkshire, the fibres can be traced to the individual herds, ensuring traceability.
The fibre is then spun in Yorkshire by Laxtons’s Mill who have over 100 years experience in spinning, ensuring the highest quality fibre reaches the craftspeople at John Smedley in Lea Mills, Derbyshire.
British, iconic and sustainable.
It’s this attention to detail and passion for a product that makes our job at Gabucci here in Bath so special.
Described as a love letter to British manufacturing, John Smedley’s Autumn Winter 2019 Collection is inspired …
Taking inspiration from the 2000 film ‘In the Mood for Love’ by Wong Kar-Wai, the film’s highly stylised visuals have informed both the colour palette and the unique patterns developed for this season, with shades of vibrant reds and oranges juxtaposed against a stormy palette of deep blues, greys and purples.
Each colour story depicting the moods of the film such as love, loneliness, desire, yearning, and both the first stages of new love and the last stages of a lost love.
Patterns have been created using the film’s visual cues for yearning and desire such as a lone figure silhouetted within a window frame, a couple walking steps apart along long corridors and stealing glances across stairwells, these cues have been used as inspiration to create intricate jacquards that feature across both the men’s and womenswear collections.
New silhouettes have also been added, with elegance and outfit layering at their core, key pieces such as a double breasted jacket, signature fitted skirt and sleek bomber jackets all form a new focal point for the season’s collection.
The mood of the collection can be visualised through the fashion capsules or through the elevated and contemporary classic stripes, all of which have been designed to work alongside both fashion and the classics as a way to illustrate John Smedley’s ‘Mood for Love’ for the Autumn/Winter 19 season.
Shot on location in our home in Lea Mills. Derbyshire as our very own love letter to British manufacturing.
Roy Robson has produced a dedicated range named Primus using famous Reda fabric, in conjunction with the Italian textile firm who provides the cloth.
This is the basis for many of the suits we personalise for our customers and the video below shows the process Reda and Roy Robson go through. For our stock we select the particular Reda fabrics, the cut and even the buttons we’d like.
Reda textiles have always been a synonym of excellence and quality thanks to a production process of which each phase is scrupulously checked and to a constant striving for perfection and purity of the yarn. Reda directly manages and controls the entire production chain in a process that begins with the fleece and arrives all the way to the yarn.
