Jaeger is a familiar name, but you might be surprised to know that the fashion house has been around for 125 years. And that landmark is being celebrated by a new book, with the appropriate title of Jaeger 125.
The work of London College of Fashion lecturers Amy de la Haye and Judith Clark, the book plunders the archive of Jaeger to show its development from avant-garde knitwear maker to modern-day fashion brand. Look out for it in March 2009 for an as-yet undisclosed price. A couple of images from the book are above.
And for fans of vintage fashion, Jaeger is also producing a 'capsule collection' of original designs from the Jaeger archive of the 1960s, specifically from 1962 to 1965. These Jaeger 125 designs will be on the shelves and online from March 2009 – more on those when we get the images.
