Woolrich John Rich & Bros F/W 2010
To celebrate 180 years of history of quality fabrics and product under the Woolrich name, Woolrich John Rich & Bros is to present a special limited edition anniversary collection for fall 2010. Comprised of seventeen items for men and women, the collection celebrates Woolrich history and tradition with a limited production run of 180 pieces of each style. Each piece will have a special label and hangtag. The collection, which is produced in the US, honors the Woolrich archives and will be distributed worldwide.
Modern Hunting Color and Pattern and New Heritage are the two themes of the collection. Modern Hunting Color and Pattern is inspired by the hunting heritage and the trend of hunting clothing reinterpreted for today’s consumer. This part of the collection plays with a new interpretation of traditional colors, patterns and products. New Heritage is an update to the classic heritage palette of red, black, and cream with navy and bright blue while incorporating new patterns for the season. This concept combines classic American styles with an updated modern interpretation.
For men, the collection focuses on archival styles such as the Stage Jacket, Ranch Coat, Charlie Brown Jacket, and the historical Arctic Park using archival fabrics like wool, fleece and flannel. The collection also features updated iconic pieces created by Japanese designer Tokito Yoshida that includes the Polar Parka, Stadium Coat and the Humboldt Field Jacket. Each item is a blend of heritage inspiration with a modern aesthetic.
