wings + horns Spring & Summer 2013

Vancouver's very own wings + horns presents us with a great collection for Spring & Summer 2013. The pressing inspiration for this season is a focus on the paratooper uniform from WWII, coupled with a proper wings + horns design spin, focusing heavily on the fit and approachability you've already come to appreciate with the brand. They've also employed the use of heavy zig-zag stitching, reworked canvas bellows pockets, contrast taping and elbow patches which are all inspired by the tactical, utilitarian nature of these uniforms. The introduction of Rust and Union Blue this season is also worth taking note.

"The spring/summer 2013 collection takes inspiration from the rugged yet practical uniforms worn by paratroopers during the second world war. These unique pieces were custom reworked with details such as canvas pocket bellows that were sewn into the garments to provide the extra space for their jump missions. These bellows can be found throughout the collection on outerwear, jacket pockets and bottoms."
