FUNCTIONAL AND ADAPTABLE

A collection inspired by extreme weather conditions, adaptability and function, being able to adjust from one environment to another. Charlie researched Inuit tribes native to Alaska and Canada, and how they adapted to such harsh conditions over the past hundreds of years. All of the garments were constructed from the resources available to them; a parka produced from the gut of a seal. A lot of these pieces were some of the first examples in history of technical waterproof clothing. Charlie was fascinated by how pioneering these garments are, redesigning them using modern materials, replacing animal fur with sherpa fleece and skins with waterproof Nylons.
