the spring/summer 2013 collection takes inspiration from the rugged yet practical uniforms worn by paratroopers during the second world war. these unique pieces were custom reworked with details such as canvas pocket bellows that were sewn into the garments to provide the extra space for their jump missions. these bellows can be found throughout the collection on outerwear, jacket pockets, and bottoms.
the heavy zig-zag stitching used in parachutes is another element of design incorporated into the collection, re-appropriated on button down shirts, blazers, and in attaching elbow patches.
traditional utilitarian features can be found on classic styles carried forward from past seasons. the westpoint twill chino continues in new seasonal colourways, sand, rust, and union blue, the officer mac coat is re-introduced in a knitted nylon blend, and the bush pant, another core style, is updated with contrast rust taping.
the colour palette features an array of neutrals, prints, and two seasonal colours – rust and union blue. indigo also continues in new spring/summer styles – a semi spread collar button down, a cotton gauze trucker jacket, and a hand-bleached plaid shirt.
