Scandinavian fashion staple, Norse Projects deliver an ever-consistent collection for Fall / Winter 2016, keeping both men and women very cozy this winter. A combination of premium materials and removable linings from the heavier pieces ensure that you’ll be warm and dry no matter what weather you face next season, even in harsher environments.
Looking firstly at the mens collection, we see a continuation of Norse Projects staples we have come to expect and love over the years, in addition to some great looking new styles. Norse Projects are true pioneers of the ethos, less is more and this collection shows exactly why that works. An understated colour palette adorn a line of well-made, premium products with minimal branding throughout. Shades of indigo, cream and grey with a splash of deep burgundy are present throughout most of the collection. The stand out pieces from the mens collection are the grey/cream sweat and the burgundy wool zip up shirt. The Tyge Gabardine jacket which looks like an updated A2 flight jacket and is seen in a tonal olive green colour way also deserves a mention.
In contrast to the fitted men’s pieces, the women’s collection sees oversized silhouettes in both length and structure, with many of the shirt and jacket hemlines falling around knee level. The colour palette, similar to the mens line, consists of a sea of navy, grey, cream and deep burgundy.
Although still relatively new to producing women’s clothing, Norse Projects is speedily making a reputation for it’s female line, as a stand alone brand. I would even go as far to say that I prefer the women’s clothes to the mens for next season, with more options and interesting designs on offer. Each product featured in the campaign (below) looks great, but the stand out pieces have to be the all burgundy fit, consisting of what looks to be an oversized dress combined with a sharp wool coat, as well as the deconstructed navy pinstripe suit. The attention to detail and quality of the clothing on each piece looks second to none.
As always the lookbooks are shot and styled very well, oozing that effortless style that Norse Projects somehow always manage to pull off. The first arrivals from the collections are now available online at Norse Projects.
