Established in 1889, Carhartt is an American workwear label known for its jackets, coats, overalls, coveralls, vests, dungarees and fire-resistant clothing. A hundred years later, Carhartt Work in Progress – or Carhartt WIP as it’s more commonly known – was established as an “All American Concept” for the European market. The pieces were quickly picked up by rappers and hip hop artists in the ’90s and in 2000, the label debuted its first womenswear collection.
In 2014, the brand celebrated its 25th anniversary, and has only continued to grow ever since. With workwear and over-sized silhouettes becoming increasingly prevalent in the fashion industry, Carhartt WIP has seen a surge during the past year. With everything from structured overalls to bold denim jackets, the brand has managed to reinvent and reinterpret workwear as we know it.
For our latest editorial, we’re taking a look at the label’s latest collection, exploring the new age of Carhartt WIP and its streetwear-appropriate aesthetic. Take a look at our exclusive shoot in the gallery above, and see all the best pieces the brand has to offer.
