For AW14, Nigel Cabourn has returned to the heroic age of Antarctic exploration and authentic British Military apparel that has influenced a great deal of his work, celebrating artisan British craftsmanship with a selection of new designs and staple pieces.
Debuting some of the designs we first got to see during our visit to the Garden House earlier on this year, the collection is entirely produced in the UK, constructed from hand selected and exclusively developed fabrics.
Encompassing his carefully considered shirting, hand crafted knitwear and world renowned outerwear, the first drop from this seasons collection is full to the brim with new versions some of his much loved designs.
A design with as rich a history as the heroic individuals that inspired it, the Mallory Jacket received its current moniker after the body of George Mallory was finally recovered from the slopes of Everest after his ill fated final adventure and is back for AW14 in authentic Harris Tweed, celebrating the incredible craftsmanship found in the British Isles.
Another cult classic piece, the The Cameraman Jacket was worn by Wilfrid Noyce on his numerous photographing expeditions to Everest and the AW14 iteration keeps to the original design with an authentic Mackintosh fabric upper and a lower section made again from Harris Tweed.
Topping off the collection, the Everest Parka is back in its classic guise and in a new Oil Cloth make up, stuffed by hand with the highest grade goose down, while the collar is backed with thick sheepskin and the hood is trimmed with genuine coyote fur.
