Nigel Cabourn Autumn/Winter 2013 collection – second drop
Following on from my post back in August (find that here), there has now been a second delivery of Nigel Cabourn’s Autumn/Winter 2013 collection at Newcastle’s END, with some new styles for the season and other iterations of classic pieces.
First are a couple more versions of the ‘Crazy Mallory’ – Cabourn’s multi-panelled take on his classic jacket, that utilise differing selections of Harris Tweed and Vetile. Granted these aren’t for everyone but undoubtedly show a designer unafraid to take his product and try something different with it.
If they are a step to far for your tastes, then worry not as the Business and Wide Lapel Jackets keep things simple with their take on classic tailoring, all of which are constructed of Harris tweed. Completing the set is the Short Vest, also a Harris Tweed affair and one that’s designed to sit under – and be the perfect compliment to – the wide lapel jacket.
There’s a new iteration of the iconic Aircraft Jacket, kitted out with a blue/grey striped, detachable Harris Tweed Lining for extra Winter warmth. Then there’s the Short Kagoul, constructed from 100% cotton Ventile in an all over Camouflage print and featuring a Shearling trimmed collar and a full fur trimmed hood.
Finally is the daddy of them all in the best colourway of them all – the rescue orange Everest Parka. It’s as iconic as a bit of outerwear is going to get and although never cheap, still the absolute top of the tree. All of the above is available from END now, so for further information or to buy online, go to the website here: Nigel Cabourn Autumn/Winter 2013 collection.
