AIGLE, the French brand known for functional outerwear, adds another exciting dynamic to its already stellar Fall/Winter 2014 collection – a collaboration with British designer, Nigel Cabourn.
Originally from the UK, Cabourn is known as one of the few outerwear specialists and for his vintage work-wear inspired design aesthetic. This makes the perfect pairing for AIGLE who commissioned the designer to create a unique, capsule collection. Made in France, it utilises the history and authenticity of both brand and designer. The menswear and womenswear collections comprise rugged outerwear pieces, three pairs of boots, and a bag, all of which combine functionality and style in perfect harmony. Utilising quality materials such as wool and waxed canvas, the silhouettes suit the season with their dark, earthy hues.
Although they are located on different sides of the English Channel, both AIGLE and Nigel Cabourn are brands that wear their heritage on their sleeves. Having little to do with trends and choosing to ignore the fads of the fashion world, both excel in creating functional classics that don’t skimp on quality. The collection launches later this month at AIGLE stores citywide.
