Spring 2018 marks London-based Albam Clothing’s tenth year of operation, and to celebrate they’ve not only delivered their usual seasonal crop of fantastic menswear but a brace of special commemorative pieces using their archives as inspiration. The highlight of the collection comes in the form of this bold, colour-blocked rendition of their classic Albam Trail Parka, which was a sell-out hit on its original release back in the heady days of 2011.
This update takes everything people loved about the original – simple lines, heavy duty fabric and hardware, all put together with top-notch European manufacturing – and adds high-contrast colour-blocking that’s inspired by vintage outdoor gear and 90s sportswear, giving the piece an eyecatching makeover that’s a welcome swerve from the brand’s usual muted colour palette.
Not only does it look good, but, crafted from a naturally weather-resistant British cotton canvas, it’s also highly practical, the ideal companion for your weekends, whether you’re out on the hills or just going from pub to pub – just be ready for the influx of people asking where you got it from.
The Albam Clothing range is available in-store and online now from Aphrodite Clothing.
