Getting a heritage brand together with a fashion forward designer is not exactly news-flash material but manage to team-up an iconic outdoor apparel brand with a British duo, hot on the heels of being awarded their second CFDA(Council for Fashion Designers of America) award for Menswear Designers of the year and you got yourself a front-page cover.
This is not the first time Penfield has collaborated with the boys of Rag&Bone. For A/W 10 they’ve worked their magic on the goose-down insulated jacket from their Trailwear Collection and now the denim extraordinaire designers have used the classic Rockford silhouette to create the ‘Mallory’ down jacket.
Available in black and khaki with contrast corduroy shoulder yoke & brown plaid lining, the jacket reflects the distinctive rugged aesthetic of both brands and will be available in stores, late November. For those interested the jacket retails for 650 euro and will be available at all Rag & Bone boutiques, Colette Paris, Harrods in London as well as on-line at super brand store Oki-Ni.
