WIP: VERSE TO THE CHORUS
A teaser from Carhartt WIP offers a taste of what's to come for FW22.
Described as a "Baroque-Collegiate" design to a number of staple silhouettes, the Verse collection from Carhartt places tapestry detailing to a selection of Tees, Sweats, Hoods, Jackets and accessories. An emphasis on ornamental, the laser etching to classic colours such as Hamilton Brown, alongside newer seasonal offerings such as Enzian and Vulcan, offers an intersection of intrinsically WIP palettes with ornamental graphics.
The Detroit Jacket comes constructed in a summer ready lightweight 6.5oz 'Columbia' Ripstop (fans of the Aviation Cargo series will be familiar with it's breathability). Thanks to a heavy stone wash treatment to the fabric, the super soft handle will be apparent from the first wear.
Similarly stone washed and super soft handling, the Verse hoods and sweats cut a balloon figure to Carhartt's heavyweight jersey. Offering a more subtly embossed laser etching to the design, this is a loose fitting, box cut and dropped shoulder design.
Equally a loose fitting and supple fabrication, the Verse tee offers minimal branding to the chest in a reimagined C motif and a stitched tapestry design to the rear. The spectrum of seasonal colours are offered via Ham Brown, Enzian, Vulcan and White.
Finally the accessories cater for the less hearty. Placing the tapestry motif on socks, hats and bags, including the supersized Verse Shopping Bag in a water resistant fabrication and internalised packable pouch.
