Featured above in his signature red beanie, famous explorer, conservationist, filmmaker, scientist, photographer, naval officer, author (the list goes on), Jacques Cousteau! He’s one of the many inspirations for the naval theme running through our spring summer ’17 womenswear collection.
The Cousteau Jacket shape has been designed with inspiration from the traditional US Navy deck jackets used through out the decades. Traditionally a menswear piece made from a heavy denim, we’ve modernised it using some of our key fabrics for SS17 so it sits just right.
Keeping in line with some of our favourites from the past, it features a high shawl collar and a boxy, relaxed fit. We think the Cousteau Jacket is perfect as a light outerwear piece or worn as an extra layer under a larger jacket. Lil from our Hanbury St store loves to pair her ecru denim version with the matching cropped ecru denim jeans.
