Since inception in 2008, Bleu de Paname has quickly risen to become one of the leading producers of European streetwear and through their knack for re-visiting classic french workwear, their following has grown worldwide. Based on this success, it comes as no surprise that stores such as Opening Ceremony, Comme des Garcons Japan and Colette Paris have all jumped at the opportunity to stock the brand.
As a part of their F/W 2013 campaign, designers Thomas Giorgetti and Christophe Lepine have re-released the Double Comptoir Jacket. The jacket is a perfect example of their commitment to producing “a textile range [of] functional and aesthetic purpose” and for this season, the traditional 100% cotton moleskin canvas outer has been replaced by a 13 Oz. indigo denim.
The jacket, which has a full shearling wool lining, is poised to be the only piece of outerwear that you’ll need in order to get through the fast approaching winter months and, denim fans rejoice, looks great with pretty much any pair of jeans. The design boasts a four button closure and three large outer pockets, all fastened with wooden buttons that do a great job at breaking up the rich indigo tone of the denim.
The jacket also has a large woollen collar, reminiscent of those that feature on early aviator jackets, with the ability to be “popped up” in order to protect your neck from the elements. Any raw edges have been tidily finished with white accentual piping.
As with the rest of Bleu de Paname‘s collection, the Double Comptoir Jacket is made from scratch in an old Parisian metal factory and is signed off with their signature woven logo tab at the hem.
