Blitz – Autumn / Winter 2013
Autumn / Winter 2013 sees the second collection made by Edwin Europe for blitz-motorcycles.com, born from a shared passion for road trips, great friendships and beautiful simplistic design. The collaboration retains at its heart the main core principles that prompted the first: creating non-seasonal, non-trend led functional garments that fit in with Fred and Hugo’s way of life…
Available at the Edwin Store London, selected stores across Europe and online.
The collection uses mainly black and greys as its palette, the use of monochromatic tones and fabrics lends itself to the season and its temperament.
British Millerain waxed cotton is the starting point for the collection, used for its lightweight, durable and most importantly water resistant properties. The Blitz Lumber Work Jacket, the Blitz Bronco Jacket and the EB-71 (a straight slim fitting, 5 pocket pant) are offered in British Millerain, the latter is also available in a white listed, Black / Black, heavy 13 oz denim, accompanied by an overdyed Menphis Shirt in French neps flannel and a handful of printed Tee’s in a washed black jersey.
To complete this collection, Edwin have teamed up with Stewart to produce the S.E.B (Stewart, Edwin, Blitz) Motorcycle Jacket, handmade in Italy using the finest horsehide, modelled on 1970’s racing jackets and featuring RiRi zips. The inner lining is printed with a map of Paris, on which the Parisian duo’s daily route has been drawn out.
