Lyon 2011 Arpenteur was formed by Marc Asseily & Laurent Bourven, Immediately striking a unique aesthetic within the menswear arena.
After a visit by the brand to the 6876 studio we have kept in contact over the years always showing a mutual respect and understanding until last year when we agreed to collaborate on some unique products.
Winter 2022 Collaboration with Admiral Sporting Goods features the Capandula which fuses the modernist design lines of this garment with a more rugged luxury workwear aesthetic utilising Halley Stevenson heavy weight Cotton twill “Dry wax”outer cloth, with a brushed tartan lining.
To compliment this Jacket ASG have produced an aged garment dyed T-shirt with printed artwork on the back that dates the inception dates of the brands.
The original 6876 artworks were created using hand made Letterpress techniques in 1995. To replicate these in certain formats has always been a a challenge in terms of colour matching & definition, for instance woven labels.
So for the first time we decided to create from these artworks as close a representation of the original as possible in terms of colour and technique on a garment.
We used two screens to create an overlay & authentic low tech feel to the printing.
