The Wood Wood Fall/Winter 2014 collection is inspired by the 1961 British/American war film The Guns of Navarone and the archetypal hero portrayed in movies of that era. The colors and style of the uniforms, the dress sense, and the DIY spirit of the resistance movements portrayed in these movies, form the foundation for the “Heroes” collection. New takes on iconic silhouettes with a sports-fashion approach remain balanced between style and function. Decorative sealed seams, panels and other performance-inspired details are evident throughout the collection, as is the use of chenille patches and a variety of original Wood Wood imagery. Among the all-over prints is the collection’s key print which features hand-drawn portraits of historic heroes as versatile as Karen Blixen, Tupac Shakur, Jacques Cousteau and Fausto Coppi. The materials used include bonded blends, nylon, wool, premium jerseys and much more. The Fall/Winter 2014 “Heroes” collection will be available to order beginning August 4 at Wood Wood’s webstore.
