Nigel Cabourn Autumn/Winter 2012 – Scott’s last expedition
Here’s a look at the items that will feature in Nigel Cabourn’s forthcoming Autumn/Winter 2012 collection. Based on the final expedition on Captain Robert Falcon Scott and launched to coincide with its 100th anniversary, the Limited Edition Collection consists of 13 pieces, with each individual style named after an explorer involved in Scott’s expedition.
On January 18th 1912 Captain Scott, along with four fellow explorers became the first British explorers to reach the South Pole. Along the way they endured -40°c temperatures and chilling winds. The aim of this new collection was to honour these brave men and produce real, hard-wearing clothes that reflected each of the men who took part in this expedition.
The Cabourn team were able to work closely with the actual garments thanks to the help of the Scott Polar Research Institute in Cambridge and also extensively photographed these garments to make sure the recreations were as true to the originals as possible. Huge amounts of attention has gone into each item, and even though these images are only a taster, I think they still gives an idea of the quality of what will be on offer soon.
All of the above images were shot by photographer Alex Telfer, who has been working with Nigel on this and another large project for later in the year. For more information on the brand, or to find your nearest stockist, go to the website here: Nigel Cabourn.
