Woolrich John Rich & Bros. SS14 collection is a trip down memory lane to the summer of 1970, taking this collection to the next level with their exotic elements like rich tropical floral prints and water color camouflage. Combining 1970’s resort wear, the Amazonian jungle, turn-of-the-century tailoring and English exploration gear.
The collection is a great mix of traditional marina wear paired back to large tropical floral prints and their fresh take on camouflage. This Spring they updated summer staples to create water-camo print windbreakers, unstructured blazers, sailing jackets, summer parkas and assorted pieces in nautical and Hawaiian prints. Many of the outerwear pieces are both fashionable an functional with the waterproof Officer’s coats and laminated track jackets and hoodies.
Also drawing inspiration from the 1982 film Fitzcarraldo, about an early 20th Century Irishman in Peru who was made famous by his wrinkled white linen suits. Using the color palette of the Amazon, turn-of-the-century tailoring and English exploration gear, the collection will help you keep your cool with lightweight, multi-pocket blazers, parkas and assorted knits. The collection also includes lightweight camouflage coats, laminated field jackets and French terry bombers that are inspired by the jungle but equally at home at a roof party.
I’m typically not one for bright colors, even during the spring, but I am one for prints for Spring. Especially when they’re large tropical floral prints like this collection. My favorite would have to be the floral zip up jacket. Jackets that are statement pieces are great in the summer. Whether you’re attending an outdoor party, wedding, or any type of event this collection will have you covered. If you’re interested in purchasing some of the collection visit their site here.
