Carhartt Work in Progress reveals a spectacular Spring/Summer 2016 collection dubbed Icons Revisited, which represents a tribute to the brand’s workwear history. The capsule collection is based on reliable pieces that offer a perfect balance between reliability and simple aesthetics. Lightweight materials and street-friendly utilities were used to replace heavy-looking canvas and boxy fits, which is fitting as we are talking about a collection aimed at the warmer days, after all.
The most noteworthy pieces include jackets, shirts, vests, overalls and pants, some of which keep their historical elements. A good example is the State Shirt, which boasts a special pocket used traditionally by railroad workers to store their watches while on the tracks. Furthermore, the Chore coat flaunts an extended cut, which gives it a modern look while improving its protection levels.
