Here at Percival, we think special occasions deserve special occasionwear, so we’ve come up with six properly barnstorming looks for you to aspire to. Just before we hit you with the good stuff, though let us quickly enlighten you. Did you know that the word ‘occasion’ is closely related, etymologically, to the word ‘opportunity’, and evolved from the Latin word ‘occidere’, which literally means ‘to fall down’? No, neither did we, but we do know that these looks are going to make you fall down in disbelief at how perfect they are.
That was educational and funny and we’re not sorry.
SIX BIG OCCASIONWEAR LOOKS — HERE WE GO.
5/ There is something about that Natural Safari Linen Jacket over our Cream Aperitif Knit that just works. Two class acts complimenting each other, dovetailing in a way that elevates both. Like Morecambe & Wise, Xavi & Iniesta, Holmes & Watson, Pinky & The Brain. Great for any occasion, but rock up to a holiday drinks or a barbecue in this look and you’re cooking. Like the barbecue. You will both be cooking. You and the barbecue. Cooking.
6/ Natural Linen Dress Trousers paired with our Cream Aperitif Crew Neck. A look that allows you to attend a family birthday party—perhaps your gran’s 90th—then go straight to a friend’s wedding, followed by spontaneous wine and pints by the river with your work mates, and have all three groups compliment you on your outfit. It’s a sort of miracle of design, this one. Not sure how we’ve managed it, to be honest with you.
