With the traditional parka always being a big detail to each collection, we saw a twist of boiler suits right down to blazers and co-ords. To give the individual approach we saw distorted shapes of longer and short lengths, with additionally heavy structures.

Palettes of neutral tones and utility shades of oranges, navys and whites the whole show held a vibe of raw and torn, with a modern man twist. Additional details included panels, bullets, fur hoods, buckles and zips.
