The latest collaboration between NEIGHBORHOOD and Carhartt WIP is the product of a long-standing friendship stemming from a shared workwear history and a passion for crafted products synonymous with a contemporary lifestyle.
The NEIGHBORHOOD x Carhartt WIP 2014 capsule collection, which can perhaps be considered one of the defining collaborations between workwear-centric brands this year, is slated for release in Asia on August 23rd.
Expect no less than high quality material, with each piece designed with a close attention to detail and a clean aesthetic.
Key to the collection is the use of the emblematic NEIGHBORHOOD Leopard Print on traditional Carhartt Dearborn Canvas. The collection includes a selection of pants, jackets, shirts, hooded sweaters and t-shirts, as well as an assortment of accessories such as watch hats, an iPad case, and a fragrance room tag.
As part of the collection, an apron and iPhone case will be exclusively released in Japan only.
The Neighborhood x Carhartt WIP is the first complete capsule collection between the two brands. The first encounter dates back to March 2012, when a limited edition Neighborhood x Carhartt WIP t-shirt and an umbrella produced by London Undercover were released to celebrate the opening of the Carhartt WIP Store in Shoreditch, London.
The collection is expected to arrive in NEIGHBORHOOD stores, selected Carhartt WIP stores, and international retailers between the end of August 2014 and the beginning of September. Stay tuned to carhartt-wip for the latest news.
