If you are a regular reader of The Maxiemillion you may remember that during last Pitti Immagine post I used an Herschel Supply Co. item from Fall 18 as first picture. The reason is evident: this brand of Blue Distribution roster left me pleasantly surprised among all the booths I visited.
Herschel Supply Co. has a long story as a luggage brand but only recently it started to expand to apparel. Not randomly but with a logic: not including chambray shirts or belts or socks but apparel related to travel, creating a missing link among jackets and luggage. The goal is to create jackets and pullovers of the same pattern of your backpack or maybe not but with the same level of research and attention to any detail. This lead the brand to have a few capsules of extreme interest. I’m talking about the Keith Haring capsule that we saw here last season, when I showed you the Dawson Backpack.
Recently Herschel found another ally to create an outstanding capsule with for Spring 2018 and its name is Hoffman Fabrics. With more of 90 years of experience in custom fabrics that include batik print and screen printing, it’s safe to say that we are talking about one of the major brands in this industry.
From their collaboration project we are giving a look to Voyage Coach Jacket, here worn by Sally B. It’s the typical design of a coach jacket, with press buttons and collar like a shirt but… just better. Beside the late 80s inspiration of the pattern, designed in a fresh pastel color palette, you have two features that make this product superior.
It’s made of a polyester diamond dobby ripstop with wind/water-resistant coating, giving you the feeling of literally not wearing anything. Beside this it’s also packable, in a neckline self-storage pocket with snap closure. Bring it with you in your backpack and use it just in case: you never know what weather you will meet traveling…
