The women’s new arrivals this season explore several distinct themes, from traditional outdoor gear to baroque-influenced tapestries. These elements are filtered through a distinct Carhartt WIP lens, creating a series of hard-wearing, functional designs.
In the selection, various archetypal Carhartt WIP elements — such as gold button detailing and robust canvas — are spliced together to offer a novel take on the brand’s DNA. This facet of the collection is lent a retro 1970s feel, with its use of muted brown hues and faux shearling fabric. Elsewhere, some styles feature a brutalist Scandinavian bent, marrying textured fisherman style sweaters with clean, austere outerwear.
Other items, meanwhile, have a baroque-collegiate feel, thanks to their use of the Verse print, which has been applied to styles like the W’ Irving Coat and W’ Jen’s Pant. The selection is rounded out by a series of prep-influenced staples inspired by the brand’s own archival advertising from the 1990s, as well as elements of American casual-wear.
