Carhartt once gain join forces with Japanese brand Uniform Experiment to build on the success for their previous collaborative effort.
Continuing the story of their first collaboration the brands once again team up to bring us classic and functional designs that combine Carhartt’s strong workwear identity with the design aesthetics of both UE designers. Hirofumi Kyonaga of Sophnet and Hiroshi Fujiwara of Fragment Design are the two masterminds behind the Uniform Experiment brand project and here reinterpret a selection of classic designs, giving some of Carhartt fans favourite pieces their UE creative stamp of approval – in some cases literally stamping the garments with the UE logo. The collection includes popular styles such as the chambray Work shirt, duck canvas Texas pant, four short sleeve pocket T-shirts and three duck canvas tote bags.
All items come with combined Carhartt and UE branding and a distressed ‘worn in’ look which I have to admit I like a lot. The T-shirts are a personal favourite here, and although the pocket tee is overdone, it has now become a staple of most wardrobes. The T-shirts include some great little details, like the stars on the sleeve and branding focus around the pocket area. Yet again another strong little collection of gear here from both brands – it seems by not changing a great deal, UE have reworked some classics keeping the clean and simple Carhartt look.
All that you see below is available from selected Carhartt stores including the Shoreditch E1 location.
