Penfield autumn/winter 2011 collection
In 1975 Harvey Gross established the Penfield brand in Hudson, Massachusetts. Not long after starting up, Penfield became recognised for their exceptional quality, reliability and function in down-filled jackets and outerwear. Penfield epitomises the spirit and qualities of New England and the great outdoors and for over four decades they've produced products according to the same basic principles on which the company was founded.
New for autumn/winter 2011, the US brand have referenced their vibrant history with the continued use of archival-inspired designs and fabrics like 60/40 and Hudson Wax cloth, as well as forging ahead with brand new styles and forward-looking projects.
Two of Penfield's most popular segments – Trailwear by Penfield and the Black Bear collection – have received upgrades for this new season. Black Bear represents Penfield’s most fashion-forward range, with, monochrome colorways and streamlined silhouettes, capped off with the introduction of traditional, luxe suiting fabrics. Trailwear by Penfield makes use of classic Herringbone tweeds in a rich autumnal colour palette, complemented by new, distinct branding and labeling. Together with the Classic collection of staple Penfield styles, each individual segment fits together under Penfield’s design philosophy of outerwear, shirting, pants and accessories that are as fashionable as they are functional.
