ONE OF A KIND: Filson will launch its new C.C. Filson line on Saturday, a collection of five different outerwear looks in collaboration with British designer Nigel Cabourn. His designs will be the first in a continuing line of Filson designer collaborations that will all fall under the C.C. Filson brand.
“The inspiration for the collection came from an original Filson jacket that I found in a vintage store in Japan,” he said. “It was a 1930’s Filson jacket with odd pockets that did not match and was probably a mistake. We ended up using this style of pockets on two C.C. Filson jackets.”
