Nigel Cabourn’s utilitarian style takes us into AW17/18 at London Fashion Week Men’s. The collection, which manages to turn comfortable and practical clothing into elegance, was covered in safari and military print. The garments were durable and ready for the wear and tear of a working man, or at least one braving the streets of London this winter. Actually, the collection is appropriate for women as well, and contains 20 unisex pieces that can be worn for ski trips or otherwise.
This season, to celebrate the brand’s 30th anniversary, the brand put forth a collection of not only urban casual wear but also ski wear. Cabourn explains that while his designs are typically based in British army wear, this season, he used Sweden’s military as the base of inspiration for his ski collection.
The camouflage style makes the items perfect for stylish street wear, but the clothes do serve a purpose: they’re made to last through all sorts of inclimiat weather conditions. Hopefully there’s some ski resorts near London!
