With the Needles logo itself inspired by Steve McQueen’s chest tattoo in the 1973 prison-escape thriller Papillion and the actor being synonymous with the jackets, it was only right the two brands joined forces. Delving into Baracuta’s archives, the offering translates the G9 in a corduroy makeover adorned in an all-over Paisley print arriving in five colorways.
Blending both brands’ design cues, the bold colors are a touch of Needles aesthetic whilst the styles maintain Baracuta’s Fraser tartan lining, two-button collar and the G9’s signature umbrella back yoke.
The Needles x Baracuta G9 collection retails for €699 EUR (approximately $810 USD). Check out the lookbook in the gallery and watch the campaign visuals above or visit the brand’s website for more information.
