Carhartt's street level 'Work In Progress' imprint have released the visuals to their SS16 collection, which sees the brand update some of their more familiar styles as well as introduce some new seasonal pieces.
While maintaining Carhartt's ethos in robust, durable construction, Carhartt WIP's approach is a lot more accessible and allows the brand to experiment with different influences in their design . For Spring/Summer 2016 we see a lot more sportswear and athletic inspired pieces, with collegiate text featuring on coach jacket styles, rugby shirts, hoodies and sweaters, as well as a two piece tracksuit which includes a track top and bottoms, a far cry from the brands workwear roots. They have made use of various prints throughout, with military inspired camouflage applied to several items and seasonal tropical prints on short-sleeve shirts, as well as updating classic workwear designs and fabrications, such as the denim dungarees and chore jacket styles, which have been reworked with a streetwear sensibility. The collection is rounded off with a concise footwear and accessory range, including sunglasses, slip-on shoes and a fold out chair for those camp-outs.
Carhartt WIP’s SS16 collection is available now at select stockists and Carhartt's webstore.
