We are happy to share with you the “SUMMER OF 67” S/S19 collection by Moose Knuckles, the anti luxury-luxury outerwear brand from Canada, which was presented at the last Pitti Uomo edition. The Spring/Summer 2019 collection of the irreverent Canadian brand Moose Knuckles draws inspiration from the iconic Expo of 1967, which took place in Montreal and was instrumental in getting worldwide attention for this city and its thriving cultural and artistic scene.
During this period Canadian artists produced some of the best graphic designs of their time, transforming that period in the golden age of the North American Graphic Design.
The glamming futuristic spectacle of the iconic Expo is reflected in the shapes, colors and graphic of the collection, which boasts a color palette, including classic colors like black, grey and blue, enriched by two different shades of red, bright light blue, sparkling green, yellow and polychrome camouflage.
Key pieces for this season are the new leather jackets combined with technical fabrics like the Combat Twill, a reinterpretation of the iconic Summer Parka of the brand and padded puffers for transitional seasons.
New entries of the collection are short and oversized bombers, an athletic capsule collection with zipped and hooded sweatshirts, joggers and shorts, polo shirts, as well as a remarkable widening of the t-shirts range, with typical graphics of that era.
For S/S19 the brand’s focus tends to move towards a more urban street reality, merging its outerwear staples with a streetwear aesthetic, that plays on 90’s references and the use of oversized logos as decorative element.
