From Woolrich John Rich & Bros comes a Fall/Winter 2013 collection release that has the line split between two individual contrasting themes: the TOWN CONCEPT and the MOUNTAIN CONCEPT. The former consists of understated tones that are better matched in an urban environment. The latter, MOUNTAIN CONCEPT theme focuses more on dress worn when vacating the city and heading out into the mountains – a heritage aesthetic that harks back to the brand’s origin. Technical water-resistant fabrics for a range of arctic parkas are the general focus here. The list of special edition renditions of the classic parkas include the Loden Arctic Parka DF in Loden fabric made in Austria, the Loro Piana Storm System Arctic Parka made of 100% Italian wool and completely water-resistant, the Shearling Arctic Parka in water-repellent Supima cotton, and Camo Arctic Parka DF in wind and waterproof nylon.
