Last year Tenue de Nîmes were invited to New Castle by Nigel Cabourn. He wanted to share a sneak preview of his 2011 spring/summer collection. He told them about his search for old designs, materials and fabrics. He also shared some of his most bizarre finds and spoke about his quest to put these finds in a contemporary, Nigel Cabourn perspective. This search for a perspective led him to this season’s theme: The Submarine. This is how Nigel created a naval season with a true Cabourn touch. In Tenue de Nîmes’ opinion this short interview shines an extra light on the extraordinary SS11 collection by Nigel Cabourn. Enjoy!
