Carhartt WIP x FORTY PERCENT AGAINST RIGHTS (FPAR)

 

For Fall/Winter 2019, Carhartt
Work In Progress has teamed
up with FORTY PERCENT
AGAINST RIGHTS (FPAR) for
the first time, to create a collection
that sees the Tokyobased
brand rework a selection
of Carhartt WIP classics.

 

 

 

Tetsu Nishiyama, the founder and creative
director of FPAR, first started the brand
as a personal project during the 1990s,
with handmade t-shirts acting as his
medium for expression. At the same time,
Carhartt WIP was becoming increasingly
prominent within Tokyo street and
subcultures, thanks to its inimitable style.
Since then, in the eyes of Nishiyama,
the two brands have always shared similar
values of honesty and authenticity.
This is coupled with the Japanese
designer’s obsessive research of vintage
clothing, and in particular, archive
Carhartt pieces.

The Carhartt WIP x FORTY PERCENT
AGAINST RIGHTS collaboration features
reworked Carhartt WIP designs – some
of which nod to popular pieces in Tokyo
during the 90s. The collection includes
an OG Active Jacket, created in traditional
Dearborn Canvas and an 11.5oz stone
washed denim, complete with a faux-fur
hood lining. There’s also a short-sleeve
Pocket T-shirt in both solid colors and an
indigo wash, as well as a grosgrain-taped
Single Knee work pant. This is rounded
off by signature headwear, such as a
Canvas Cap and Beanie.
Each product also bears an exclusive cobranded
woven label that reads “Guerilla:
The Incubation Period,” positioned alongside
Carhartt WIP’s original embroidered
‘C’ logo.
This collaboration will be
available at select Carhartt
WIP stores and retailers
in Asia and Australia from
October 16th, and launching
in Europe, North America,
and online on October 23rd.
