This morning we took a better look at the Carhartt Work In Progress Lookbook for Fall/Winter 2012. The Carhartt brand has been making a strong comeback in recent years through heritage menswear trends and strong collaborations.
Founded in 1994, Work in Progress began running distribution for Carhartt goods in Europe and gradually began to introduce classic products from the original workwear range to a new market. In the few years that followed, their success made it possible for Carhartt and Work in Progress to present their first Carhartt range produced for and available exclusively in Europe. This first collection included the original workwear cuts re-interpreted and re-fitted for the demands of an urban environment but true to the Carhartt brand’s core values: outstanding design combined with exceptional quality, durability and comfort.
Fall/Winter 2012 sees colors, patterns and fabrics we’ve seen before in the heritage collections, now included in the Carhartt WIP mainline. Strong outerwear and patterned shirting is thrown into the mix with classic Carhartt pieces to make a well balanced collection at good price points. The collection will be available at Denim Geek in the next few months.
