C.C. Filson by Nigel Cabourn

October 20th, 2014

Representing the merging of two kindred spirits, the C.C. Filson AW14 collection was designed in partnership with END. stalwart and renowned outerwear aficionado Nigel Cabourn.

Inspired in part by a vintage Filson Cruiser Jacket Cabourn picked up in a thrift shop in Japan, the collection borrows the name of Filson’s founding father and looks to create clothing that pays homage to their celebrated history whilst incorporating contemporary functionality.

Utilising an incredibly hard wearing selection of fabrics, from 16oz paraffin waxed cotton to 18oz Seattle wool, combined with Filson’s seasoned manufacturing expertise, this is a collection of outerwear designed to last and last and last.

A man with a unqiue insight into the world of outerwear, whether it be from his 40 plus years in the industry, his personal archive of over 4000 vintage pieces or even his location right here in the cold, wet and windy North East of England, Nigel Cabourn has brought his incredible knowledge to the table throughout every aspect of the design.

Thanks to this, yoke’s are reinforced with extra tough reinforcing layers, overcoats are kitted out with utilitarian pocket set ups and archive inspired brass military clasps are deployed alongside military grade melamine buttons in order to keep everything in place across an incredible collection of weather defeating outerwear.

Available online now head over the Filson section to explore the C.C. Filson by Nigel Cabourn collection now.

adidas Originals x Barbour Autumn/Winter 2014 Collection

October 20th, 2014

Leading heritage and lifestyle brand Barbour has collaborated with sportswear giant adidas Originals on a limited edition of highly covetable clothing and footwear. The collection offers a wide choice of design, look and feel combining sportswear with functionality.

Taking three themes, each story features jackets and trainers or boots designed to be worn together or stand alone. The stories reflect the heritage of both brands from Barbour’s country and military influences to sportswear, the heartland of adidas Originals.

Country
Barbour has always been synonymous with the British countryside. Celebrating this heritage, Barbour gives the iconic Beaufort wax jacket a contemporary makeover. The Adiwick jacket in a robust 8oz beeswax, retains the classic Barbour Beaufort features of large bellows pockets, studded detachable hood and rear zipped pocket. What makes this jacket unique is the extra detailing of added leather trims to the hem, pocket and hood for an up to the minute look. To complement the jacket, the adidas classic outdoor shoes TS Runners – Barbour are especially redesigned featuring a waxed cotton tongue and beautifully aged tan upper leather.

Spectator
The Spectator story celebrates the long association adidas has had with sport. Sports often played and enjoyed on Barbour’s territory of country fields, grassy green pitches and rainy British parks. Spectator combines retro footwear spotted on the field with protective outerwear worn on the side lines to create two jackets and trainers that perfectly merge both brands DNA. The Johbar jacket takes the iconic features of a classic Barbour wax jacket, the large ring pull zip, spacious bellows pockets, hand warmer pockets, studded rear vents and corduroy collar and combines these into an exclusive wax cotton jacket in navy with contrasting sleeves and leather binding at pockets and cuffs. The ZX555 – Barbour shoes designed to be worn with the Johbar.

The red quilted showerproof Roubarb jacket offers an alternative lighter weight choice. Inspired by the colours of the track and the famous ‘Beckenbauer’ track top, the Roubarb is a shorter version of Barbour’s traditional quilt. Details include track top lycra cuffs and hems and waterproof zips to front jetted pockets. The CLMBA – Barbour shoes in chilli red incorporate the Barbour Beacon logo on the peg ends and add a clever use of Ecotex tongue material.

Military
The Military story is inspired by a customised jacket that Barbour created for a captain in the British army at the time of the Falklands War in the 1980s. The Baradi jacket is multi-pocketed, full of detail and has a printed camo lining made up of sections of the accompanying GSG9 – Barbour boot. The soft black nappa leather combined with Barbour waxed fabric makes these boots the natural partner to the Baradi jacket.

adidas Originals x SPEZIAL Capsule Collection – Launching 25/10/14

October 16th, 2014

161014_Spezials_1

A term that has come to represent the most die-hard adidas aficionados, the ‘Spezial’  capsule collection evolved from the exhibition of the same name held in London in 2013, an event curated by life-long 3 stripe devotee Gary Aspden.

A celebration of all things adidas, the exhibition showcased a vast collection of archive silhouettes, with many borrowed from the personal collections of some of the brand’s most passionate fans.

As a result of the exhibit’s roaring success, Aspden has gone on to work with the German sportswear legends for this new capsule, born from the devotion of those his own lifelong obsession with the brand with the three stripes.

Growing up in North West England, a place which he describes as ‘adidas heartland’, luxury sportswear and adidas trainers were a genuine staple, where functional sportswear was adapted by young people to suit their own purposes, whether they were as a status symbols or for clambering over a fence.

Galvanised by the early hip hop all-dayers and Hacienda acid house all-nighters, adidas footwear become intrinsically linked to their identity and culture, communicating shared ideas and attitudes across terraces and dancefloors alike.

Creating a collection of contemporary clothing that celebrates the brands rich history and cultural influence, Aspden has both curated and designed a range that focuses on the brand’s oft overlooked leisurewear lineage and celebrates the devotion their footwear has inspired.

The adidas Originals x SPEZIAL collection takes on a variety of archive silhouettes, blending original specs with sought after special editions and details lifted from the personal collections of the most die hard adi fanatics., topped off with a new selection of apparel, re-designed and re-invented in luxurious fabrics and modern cuts.

Launching here on the 25th October 2014, email our customer services team at [email protected] for more information on the adidas Original x SPEZIAL capsule collection and we would especially like to thank North Shields FC for providing us with the location for the shoot.
