Carhartt Work in Progress (WIP) again join forces with RETROSUPERFUTURE® to develop a specifically tailored line of sunglasses for Spring/Summer 2015. Designed for everyday use, these sunglasses represent the core elements of both brands: timeless design, quality manufacture, and refined materials. Standouts in the small collection include the DICKINSON (pictured in Matte Black and Classic Havana) and the FARWELL (pictured in Green Horn). This collaboration is not only tightly limited in distribution but quantity, as well. We've managed to get ahold of just 3 pairs of each of the pictured styles - the Carhartt WIP x RETROSUPERFUTURE® S/S '15 Collection is available now, online.
About Carhartt WIP:
Founded in 1994, Work In Progress initiated a distribution network for Carhartt across Europe, introducing a selection of classic products from the original work wear range into a new market. Success was immediate; the authentic Carhartt products quickly became popular with both fans of traditional US heritage garments and with the nascent European urban culture scene.
The first product range designed exclusively by Work In Progress for Europe followed in 1997. Since then, under license and never without the expressed consent of the company HQ in Dearborn, Michigan, Carhartt WIP has carefully adapted, re-interpreted and re-fitted work wear cuts for the demands of an active life in the urban environment, remaining true to Carhartt´s core values: quality, durability and comfort and becoming the globally respected contemporary brand that is today.
We're all anxiously anticipating next week's delivery of Common Projects S/S '15. For the season, Common Projects brings back the breezy Original Achilles Perforated along with the Slip-On in exciting new materials and colors. For the first time, we'll see the iconic Original Achilles silhouetted done up in a premium all canvas make up. Also making its collection debut is the Achilles Raw, featuring premium-grade raw hide leather uppers.
Common Projects S/S '15 arrives in store Thursday (2/12). Because of the customary limited sizes/quantities, we're opening up the collection for pre-sale, online.
