Nigel Cabourn | SS21, Lybro
Famous for being an iconic British cult designer, Nigel Cabourn has over 40 years within the fashion industry. The brand is renowned for not being influenced by fashion trends and instead focus on inspirational people throughout history to inspire their future looks. The brand also derives inspiration from vintage military, the great outdoors and classic work wear. These inspirations combined, the iconic Nigel Cabourn brand was formed.
The latest Spring / Summer campaign is dedicated to the Lybro Range. This collection still draws inspiration from Cabourn’s design roots with the work-wear and classic military design aesthetic. However, it offers a fresh contemporary feel with that classic heritage twist.
Inspired by the loose-fitting ‘deck bibs’ worn by the US Naval officers
London-based musician VC Pines styled some of the Lybro pieces from our latest drop, including a firm Cabourn favourite – the Naval Dungaree. Inspired by the loose-fitting ‘deck bibs’ worn by the US Naval officers during the Second World War. To suit the warmer season, our dungarees are available in a blend of cotton and linen, as well as the version made from a mix of canvas and herringbone cotton.
VC Pines (also known as Jack Mercer) has just released a new single on Theory Records “Smoke Without Fire” As he alludes to, music and clothes have always had a symbiotic relationship: “I wear a lot of vintage clothing, I try to find strange and rare pieces to wear on stage and a lot of them tend to be old military pieces from all over the world. I think that’s why I love to wear Cabourn dungarees too, all of Cabourn’s clothes have a clear link to vintage military uniforms, and the dungarees in particular have that uniqueness to them. The huge pockets and their oversized nature can look even more bizarre under stage lighting which I think is really cool. I just like to stand apart from most people and I think they definitely do a lot of the work haha.”
The collection is set to drop online this week. Keep an eye out on our latest arrivals
