Derive

The sudden change of ambiance in a street within the space of a few meters; the evident division of a city into zones of distinct psychic atmospheres; the path of least resistance that is automatically followed in aimless strolls (and which has no relation to the physical contour of the terrain); the appealing or repelling character of certain places — these phenomena all seem to be neglected. In any case they are never envisaged as depending on causes that can be uncovered by careful analysis and turned to account.

Craigowl jacket

Its well over ten years ago that I started to investigate the idea of evolving the classic British workwear jacket & over a few seasons from around 2001-2007 6876 played with the composition,detailing and fabrication.

We moved from 100% natural fibres,garment dyes and eventually to proofed cotton before the genre subsided until there was a version in our Cashca collaboration more recently.

Still I felt there was something else that I wanted to achieve which was a summer version that was very lightweight, yet robust and with good technical capabilities. This all came together when I sourced a fabric from a regular and progressive supplier ;FOV in Sweden well known for supplying many of the premium technical brands.
