Patagonia Fall 19:
Supported by a feature-length film entitled ‘Our Land’ which explores the fate of America’s public lands and the stories of those fighting for and against current administration, AW19 sees Patagonia continue to improve their already commendable design process to update key styles using innovative materials and monitored factories in support of conscious manufacture. Since the brands inception in 1976, the aesthetic has changed very little and each design continues to bear the famous P-6 logo design as an emblem of the company’s history and its commitment to protecting natural environments.
Available online and in our Exeter store, this seasons menswear range focuses on offering a selection of transitional everyday styles, which in the true nature of Patagonia have been designed with adventure, comfort and durability in mind.
A key outerwear style for autumn/winter this year, Patagonia have introduced a variety of functional and comfortable fleece designs such as their distinctive patterned Lightweight Synch Snap-T Pullover Sweatshirts and the archival Retro-X Bomber Jacket, which bears resemblance to original alpine and aviator designs. Destined for layering throughout the year, the choice is yours whether you opt for a more confident colour and print focused design or favour the more subtle Better Sweater 1/2 Zip Sweatshirt, which is now notably 100% recycled except the teeth of the zip - they’re working on it! Whatever your choice, the same focus on longevity via construction and style is carried throughout each design as a well-known running theme for the company.
Offering the perfect combination of practicality and stylish design, throughout Patagonia’s casual clothing range a variety of outerwear jackets ensure you are protected from the elements throughout the year, whilst also suiting sophisticated city environments. Influenced by its former Parka version and classic button through shirts, the Isthmus Quilted Shirt Jacket is a new style for the season and boasts a high pile partly recycled polyester fleece lining encased within a 100% recycled nylon shell. Similarly the original Isthmus Parka is a slightly more industrious version inspired by a staple 1960’s silhouette with 60g Thermogreen 100% polyester insulation throughout its sleeves.
Seen throughout the range, seasonally appropriate tones of sage khaki, logwood brown and oxide red capture an autumnal spirit and are enhanced by pops of glyph gold and pelican cream. Having been using certified organic cotton since the 1990’s, Patagonia is continuing to progress their everyday fabrics for casual t-shirts and sweatshirts by transitioning into using blends of recycled post consumer cotton and polyester. Now used across the majority of each logo range which presents various creative reworks of their famous Mount Fitz Roy logo designed in house and by selected artists, styles such as the P-6 Logo Responsibili-Tee and Line Logo Ridge Pocket Responsibili-Tee T-Shirt represent the next evolution of t-shirts. Differing each season depending on social and environmental changes, styles such as the Fed Up With Melt Down Responsibili-Tee T-Shirt are used as a way to broadcast current discussions of global warming.
Already seen as the leading conscious outdoor clothing and accessories company, Patagonia never rest when it comes to bettering their manufacturing systems to ensure they are working as consciously and sustainably as possible. Key achievements this season include the update across their Ultralight Black Hole Bag styles which include the compact Mini Hip Pack, 20L Pack and Tote Pack. Now made using 100% recycled materials for the body fabric, lining and webbing which has reduced their use of virgin materials whilst also cutting CO2 emissions by 50% over the entire range, this is also the first season they’ve made 100% of the waterproof shells with recycled materials in Fair Trade Factories. Other virgin fibres such as wool are also being limited when it comes to insulating headwear, with designs such as the Brodeo Beanie and five-panel Recycled Wool Cap presenting how quality and softness can be maintained when it comes to making use of scrap materials.
Demonstrating the unity and emotions behind rising issues linked with global warming, Patagonia will be closing all of its worldwide stores on September 20th as part of a Climate Strike protest which was started by young activists who are raising awareness in the future of our planet, with many companies and workers joining them in support. You can take part in the event locally in Plymouth and Exeter on the morning of September 20th, more details can be found here.
