TOOGOOD X CARHARTT WIP
Carhartt WIP’s new collaboration with Toogood recuts archetypal Carhartt WIP shapes and injects them with sculptural volume.
The unisex capsule collection – two jackets, a shirt, a trouser, an overall and a t-shirt combines elements from both brands’ work.
The resculpting and combining of iconic styles such as Carhartt WIP’s Michigan Jacket and Toogood’s Photographer Jacket signifies the labels’ shared utilitarian aesthetic.
The garments are made in Carhartt WIP’s trademark organic cotton Dearborn Canvas and the lighter Utah Canvas and are finished with co-branded labeling and buttons. The concise color palette of off-white, black and hamilton brown emphasizes the sense of everyday uniform that underpins the collection.
“This collaboration has come from a very natural place for both brands,” says Erica Toogood of the London-based design studio. “Carhartt WIP’s history of modifying historic workwear sits effortlessly with Toogood’s nod to trades and workwear, reimagined and sculpted with artistic freedom.
