Edwin’s Fall/Winter 2012 Collection is defined by its focus on freedom, where a sense of shared isolation among the wilds of the world creates the foundation for a heightened sense of kinship. This band of brothers & sisters ride, side by side, in a relentless pursuit of adventure. The cloth that surrounds them becomes the rivets that bond their lives to the memories they create, their clothing an ever evolving recollection of time. Classic blocks provide a testament to quality and durability and fabric is cut and constructed with longevity in mind, respecting the traditions of strength and rugged resilience.
The denim is a blend of premium Japanese and European fabrics, many of which are exclusively developed by Edwin, and wear-patterns are based on natural washes painstakingly re-created. Black denim has been densely over-dyed into colours to create deep, muted olive, dusty burgundy and ashy okra tones that are then re-washed to allow the fabrics natural character to subtly emerge beneath the oaky winter colour pallet.
Edwin’s unique Rainbow selvage takes pride of place om the collection with the ’63 Rainbow selvage’ providing the focus for a series of exclusively developed Japanese fabrics that include red listed selvage, granite & blanket denim. Quartz & Dark blue shuttle denim is presented across a plethora of washes and cuts, and is hand-finished at Tunisian and Italian laundries.
As far as clothing goes, heavy-duty 500g jersey jackets and sweaters sit alongside linen and 100% irregular slub cotton tee shirts. Shirting fabrics are exclusively developed for Edwin Europe in France by a mill specialising in the very best quality cotton. These shirts are presented in herringbone checks, horizontal oxford stripes, twisted yarn indigo and light grey ‘wool feel’ fine melange fabrics.
Jackets are constructed using tightly spun, heavy weight armoured twills, printed canvas camouflage and leather are heavily quilted and blanket lined pieces that create light-weight yet heavy duty outerwear. Specially designed removable ‘Shank’ buttons are utilised on many of the heavier outerwear pieces, intended to prevent damage during hand washing. The Edwin Fall/Winter 2012 collection provides a covenant between style and durability.
The Edwin Spring/Summer 2012 collection is available in the Denim Geek store.
