Nigel Cabourn’s Limited Edition 1 collection, “The Ascent of Cabourn,” inspired by Sir Edmund Hillary, came in 2003. Yesterday, on the 100th anniversary of Captain’s Scott’s mission to the South Pole, Nigel Cabourn released Limited Edition 2 collection: Scott’s Last Expedition.
The “Scott’s Last Expedition” collection by Nigel Cabourn consists of 12 garments, each produced in an edition of 100; as well as 300 pieces of accessories is a six year project in the making. Working with the Scott Polar Research Institute, Cabourn reproduced garments as worn by R.F. Scott’s crew on the South Pole endeavor, in that detailed – almost obsessively correct – manner that he is known for.
A book, examining Scott’s Expedition and the garments honestly reproduced by Cabourn, is available. We’ll share looks inside at a later time. For now, examine these images from the collection as shown in Berlin.
