Nigel Cabourn for Converse First String Spring 2013 Collection

Today marks the launch of Nigel Cabourn for Converse First String footwear collection, which features the Chuck Taylor All Star Bosey and the all-new Chuck Taylor All Star Specialty Plimsole. The UK-based designer is known for his infusion of military fabrics into his work, and that’s precisely what he’s done here with the First String collection. Cabourn examined Converse’s rich American heritage of boots and sneakers for the outdoors and the military and aligned the classic Chuck Taylor All Star Bosey with WWII flight suit fabric uppers in military-inspired navy and olive green colors.

Nigel Cabourn x Eddie Bauer Capsule Collection

Nigel Cabourn x Eddie Bauer F/W 2012 Capsule Collection

Nigel Cabourn and Eddie Bauer have teamed up once again, this time bringing us more inspiration from Eddie Bauer’s historical archives. The American brand has an immense warehouse of designs and Mr. Cabourn was able to swift through to find some amazing fabrics and classic designs that we’re really glad to see come to fruition. Beyond the archives, the collection is also inspired by vintage hunting and fishing styles, something that’s quite prevalent throughout the offerings. Quilted coats, waxed cotton vests with fur lined detachable hoods, and down filled parkas are all designed and constructed with the uncompromising quality that has become synonymous with the Nigel Cabourn brand (consider that the down filled parkas are stuffed by hand and require more than five hours of production work to complete each garment). Winter, here we come. The pieces are available now at Roden Gray. More shots below.

It features a reverse leather shell with a heavily distressed look throughout the cap toe and sides of the upper. It’s a great look and one that adds to the already versatile silhouette of the Service Boot. The pair will soon be available exclusively at Barneys in the US. (via Glltn)

Nigel Cabourn collaboration with Eddie Bauer for the upcoming Fall/Winter 2011 seasons was one of the most sought-after collections from this past January’s Pitti Uomo. The collaboration pieces have been designed alongside Cabourn, drawing on their archive classics and produced in Canada using the techniques and experience used back in the day.

The final product is very limited but we’ve sighted the first batch in the form of EB’s Canadian vest at Superdenim. Available in both an orange check and olive, the Canadian vest is based on a military design. The olive shell features a lightly waxed cotton outer that’s hand filled with goose down and packed tight to give amazing insulation and quality finishing with Tweed details and a Coyote fur collar to finish things off. The orange check comes with a Harris Tweed outer and cotton quilted inner with fine details like the calf skin shoulder yolk and a Coyote fur collar similar to that of the olive shell to complete the piece.
