CHAD & ARROW @ DE MODEFABRIEK, AMSTERDAM










Last weekend Amsterdam was the centre of the Fashion Universe. As you maybe or maybe not know
I'm the agent for Arrow in The Netherlands and we had the opportunity to show our Fall/Winter 2015
collection to the retailers at de Modefabriek.
 The collection of Arrow is based on 3 capsules. We have a great Classic program with nice dress shirts in faux uni, checks, stripes and of course some prints. The second capsule is Casual, for a complete outfit such as shirts, knitwear like the donegal with shawl collar and my favorite piece the Monty Coat a shorter version which makes it more 2015. And last but not least the Arrow Blue Jeans program. a shirt program made like a blue-pack.
This issue of de Modefabriek was well visited with retailers from The Netherlands & Belgium. I enjoyed it very much and the best part, you will find Arrow in even more stores comparing to last year.

NIGEL CABOURN - THE CROSSING OF ANTARCTICA












The Nigel Cabourn AW15 collection celebrates the 60th anniversary of the Trans-Antarctic Expedition led by Sir Vivian Fuchs (see my previous post). Fur-trim coats, chunky knitwear and vintage-inspired jackets are just some of the key pieces prepared to keep you extremely toasty during the winter months.

THE CROSSING OF ANTARCTICA












The year 2014 was the hundredth anniversary of Sir Ernest Shackleton’s Endurance expedition, which aimed to complete the first crossing of Antarctica. He did not succeed, and his great vision rapidly turned into a now-legendary struggle for survival. Shackleton’s lifelong dream—to cross the continent—was at last realized by Sir Vivian Fuchs and Sir Edmund Hillary in 1957-58. As a key member of this Commonwealth Trans-Antarctic Expedition, Everest veteran George Lowe was there to capture it all on film.

This expedition inspired Nigel Cabourn for his FW2015 collection.
