RICHARD BRUCE WOMENSWEAR

Fashion continues to play in an irreverent and provocative manner with the military style and this mood influences our culture, art, and fashion itself. Over the years, jackets worn by armies worldwide have increased their presence in our day-to-day dress code.

Indeed, parkas, field jackets and peacoats, once typical military uniforms, have become the carry-over of our collections. RICHRAD BRUCE revisits the form, fabric and details of this must-wear clothing albeit from a truly contemporary perspective. In the wintertime, field jackets and parkas become true cold-protection wear with padded material or real fur lining. In their summer version, however, they serve as cover-ups in ultra-washed cotton poplin with worn-effect. RICHARD BRUCE reinterprets military style with a Seattle, grungy flavour by mixing the look of woodcutters and fishermen with the vintage military.
