It’s not so surprising when we’ve been contacted by Nigel Cabourn that there will be some exclusive products which will only be available for the Nigel Cabourn London store. (We’ve already released Waxed Cotton Parka in three colors this year exclusively for Cultizm and NC London store.) Then we got a lucky ride to have a chance to launch them together with London store as a part of the early Spring Summer Release 2020.
This year, Nigel worked on many pieces inspired by WWII smock parkas, we had the Lybro british army smock surviaval parka in two colors and also the Liam Gallagher collaboration long parka available in three colors.
This time, this great piece of spring outerwear takes inspriation from classic Naval WW2 smocks in Nigel’s extensive archive updated to a more contemporary parka style. It is made in British heritage fabric L34 Ventile – densely woven cotton, which creates a highly effective rain and wind barrier.
They feature an off-centre three-button high collar, large hand warmer pockets and waxed cotton ties. All highly-distinct, functional details from the vintage piece – designed for purpose – that also happen to look really, really good.
The parka is available in two colors, Olive and Black-Navy. Please check our capsule lookbook below to celebrate this special edition.
