Standout outerwear was the main event at the Private White VC presentation, where creative director Nick Ashley showed a confident and concise collection that drew on traditional workwear and military details. Working with water-repellant twills and high-twist yarns and a palette of autumnal greens and rusts, Ashley created a cool canvas bomber jacket with a seamless shoulder allowing water to roll off. A cleverly constructed field jacket could be worn in mild weather, and had a zip-off front panel to accommodate chunky knitwear in winter.
