Carhartt Work in Progress for women offers a refined update to the classic American heritage brand. Hamilton Carhartt founded his infamous label in Detroit in 1889 with the core principle of building a “just and honest” company. His vision for Carhartt carries on today both in principle and aesthetic, leading to Work in Progress’ distribution of a selection of original workwear tailored for a luxury European market. Contemporary silhouettes of classic utilitarian pieces featuring Carhartt’s trademark duck canvas fabric in their signature Hamilton brown elevate all-American utility wear to the realm of streetwise chic. Durable outerwear pieces, ranging in insulation from down-filled camouflage puffers to quilt-lined canvas jackets with shearling trim, reference the brand’s founding ethos of quality craftsmanship meeting the highest standards of comfort and wearability. Classic casualwear pieces such as heavy denim shirts with contrast stitching, cotton jersey t-shirts, and dropped shoulder hoodies enforce the urban side of Carhartt WIP, referencing at once skate subcultured and Americana leanings. While the collection features a deep utilitarian style with masculine-inspired shapes, the pieces possess conscious tailoring with a subtly feminine fit for a distinctly progressive approach to contemporary women's fashion.
