Griffin x Woolrich @ Loveland Farm revisits and interprets two all-time classics presented in limited edition. The Atlantic Parka, an updated version of the original Arctic Parka and the Smock Anorak will be offered in a selection of 1830 pieces, celebrating the year in which the brand was established. The highly technical texture of Goretex used by the brand since the very beginning is used on the iconic Arctic Parka with detachable fur and on the Storm Parka. The chromatic palette veers into shades that appear to be borrowed from Wes Anderson filmography: golden rod, igloo white, pine green and grey melange.
Woolrich has been synonymous with quality outdoor clothing for 185 years. To understand the history of Woolrich is to understand the history of the US garment industry. The company began in the 19th century and continues to produce fabric and clothes with the same traditions. John Rich, son of an English wool carder, immigrated to the USA from Liverpool in search of a new life. He set up his home in the USA in the wake of the Revolutionary war and established the Woolrich Mill in 1830 in Pennsylvania. Over the generations, Woolrich became one of the United States’ main outdoor and sportswear producers.
