Nigel Cabourn release their lookbook for Spring Summer 2013. Reworking some classic styles in parkas, casual camo suits and lightweight henleys. Some interesting takes on sweats and of course the outerwear is as usual impressive, take a look in the gallery for more.
Nigel Cabourn gets inspiration from the “hunting and fishing estates held by the British aristocracy from 1901 to 1952″ for his Fall Winter 2013 menswear collection. While focusing on British fabrics of the era, Cabourn introduces Lanificio Cerruti fabrics into the mix; particularly a 750gm cashmere, available in orange and army green.
Originally inspired by Sir Edmund Hillary’s 1953 ascent of Everest, Nigel Cabourn’s Authentic line has been one of the most powerful influences on the menswear industry over the last decade. Drawing on his more-than-40 years of experience in fashion, Nigel has been refining the collection season after season with a genuinely uncompromising commitment to quality, so rarely seen in the industry today. Based in his Gosforth workshop just a little way up the road from our shop, Nigel has delivered one of the strongest Authentic collections in recent memory for Autumn/Winter 2012, with a mix of now-perfected familiar styles and innovative new designs. As ever, there is no compromise on the quality of materials and fabrication, with all manufacturing handled in Britain, using traditional hardy British fabrics shaped by the demands of Britain’s workers, seafarers and military.
On the outerwear front, the Mallory jacket in hand woven Harris Tweed makes its regular appearance, accompanied by the Mallory vest in two matching colours, as well as a ‘Crazy’ twist on this classic jacket, made from a multi-coloured patchwork of fabrics with the addition of worn leather elbow patches. We’ve also taken stock of the highly popular Aircraft jacket in heavy oiled cotton, in either Navy or Olive, as well as the legendary Everest Parka, a recreation of the coat worn by Hillary on his Antarctic and Everest expeditions. - Endclothing
