Nom de Guerre AW 08 preview

Dear Shaded Viewers,

The Fall / Winter 2008 collection takes inspiration from the
American Military Theater of Operations in Europe during
the Second World War, and is reminiscent of both sides,
the Western as well as the Eastern European military. The
range of color consists of sober black, white, and gray,
which conjure the ideas of protean truths brought about by
military intelligence interrogations.


Traditional cotton, waxed cotton, and wool suiting fabrics
are set off by Rubberized cotton fabric utilized in
outerwear pieces, and evocative of the protective clothing
primarily worn by the Eastern European military officers.
Coats are based on standard protective gear; inspired by
extreme and adverse weather conditions with streamlined
features. Finally, graphic t-shirts that
are soft, heavily washed standards, based on the leading
thinkers of the period.
