River Island has joined forces with British menswear designer Matthew Miller for its latest Design Forum collaboration. Drawing inspiration from traditional military apparel, the duo give the aesthetic a modern makeover. The 10-piece collection includes stonewashed parkas and combat trousers cut from Swiss camo cloths, a khaki patch pocket shirt, patch bomber jacket and oversized hoodie and sweats combo. Earthy tones harken to ’40s army uniforms and service garb while graphics and technical finishing adds a modern element.

Matthew Miller, the creative director and founder of his namesake company had this to say,

The Design Forum collection is based on my private military archive so the opportunity to re-issue these pieces has been a creative journey that is particularly personal to me. We worked closely with the River Island design team; taking inspiration from museums and rummaging through vintage showrooms we strived to create a collection that not only draws upon my core design aesthetic, but appeals to the River Island man.

River Island will showcase the range with a short film at London Fashion Week Men’s later this month. The full selection will be available at select stores and River Island’s web store later this month as well for £25-£110 GBP ($32-$142 USD).
