Carhartt WIP demonstrates its mastery of outerwear with a strong variety of layering pieces for Fall/Winter 2018. Encompassing everything from puffer jackets to collegiate sweaters, the range is packed with twists on the iconic workwear-inspired styles that the Carhartt brand built its name on.
Classic items, like the four-pocket chore jacket, knit beanie and heavy-duty hoodie, return in droves, with bright shades and muted camouflage patterns offering a lighthearted alternative to the conventional iterations. Texture-heavy wool shirts and cordoroy barn jackets add subtle visual interest to staple pieces, while more contemporary items, including trim mac coats and zip-up fleece overshirts, make for an appreciably youthful subversion of the Carhartt brand identity. Knitwear underlines the comfy aesthetic, with intarsia sweaters and long scarves making for effortless insulation against the winter chill, complemented by contrasting sherpa-lined layers. Meanwhile, plaids and retro mountain prints appear throughout the release, providing a graphic alternative to the understated washed denim, muted black and reliable duck brown that informs the core of the collection.
Expect the new range to arrive on Carhartt WIP’s web store shortly.
Recently, it was rumored that the workwear experts were teaming with Nike on collaborative Air Force 1s.
