Accessories brand Ally Capellino has produced a limited edition burnt orange waxed cotton aprons in collaboration with Shoreditch restaurant LYLE's and non-profit organisation Making For Change. The aprons are packaged in their own tin with a special autumnal recipe from LYLE's.

Ally Capellino, the British accessory brand and local restaurant LYLE'S, share a love of straightforward products that show the best of raw materials.

Inspired by the Ally Capellino AW17 campaign which was shot at the restaurant, they have collaborated to produce ‘Tinned Apron’ a metal tin also containing a special LYLE'S recipe card. The limited edition British waxed cotton apron fits all sizes and has removable leather straps. They are made at HMPrison at Downview, in a non-profit scheme Making for Change that aims to help women to gain meaningful skills.

Available at Ally Capellino Calvert Ave and LYLE’S Shoreditch.

Ally Capellino

Satchels, totes and rucksacks for men and women who like their design to come without dictates. That’s the backbone of Ally Capellino, the accessories label so unlike your average fashion brand that, in the beginning, its name was never even intended to stick. A renegade from the outset, founder Alison Lloyd’s debut collection of T-shirts after the 1980 Moscow Olympics scandal. After heading up young British design during that decade, her characterful classics have since brought her label international acclaim and cult status among like-minded customers. More than 30 years on, Ally Capellino accessories have taken their place on the global stage, reliant not on trends, but on timelessness and quality of design, and discreetly representative of a discerning type of modern consumer. Lloyd’s faithful fans return time and again not for this season’s It-bag, but for unassuming and expertly made pieces that fit into their urban existence. An iconoclastic sense of fun and witty irreverence abides in bags named for Cabinet, Conservative and New Labour politicians, and in the brand’s quintessentially British outlook. Numerous global stockists two London shops, a collaboration with the city’s first Ace Hotel, a long running Artists range for Tate and 2010’s major retrospective at the Wapping Project mark Ally Capellino as one of the UK’s most successful homegrown brands. Not only that, but there is an integrity to the range, with production and practicality as high up on Alison Lloyd’s list as aesthetics. British design and waxed cotton, Italian veg tanned leather and attention to detail make up the unique mix of quirk and quality that is Ally Capellino.
