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.

Storm Jacket

Modern Studies staple jacket manufactured in 100% Italian Polyamide twill fabric with a DWR finish.

Technical information:

Storm cuffs and pockets, extended back neck flap and drawstring cord at the waist.

Lampo two-way centre front zip and 6876 Woodcut graphic chest print

When I designed this jacket in 2003 the idea behind it was to provide within the silhouette of a raincoat type jacket a more accessible and casual type of garment by utilising a classic Harrington and exaggerating its size.
