Where the runway meets the street

With much anticipation we have waited for the Carhartt x Burton Fall/Winter 2008 collection. For months images of the collection have been floating around the Internet and today we can show you some first pieces of the collection, as some stores in Japan got them in.
The Carhartt x Burton collection, fuses the workwear looks, cuts and philosophy of Carhartt with the technical know-how of Burton. A brilliant fusion, which results in jackets that look like a classic Carhartt jacket, but feature waterproof zippers, Gore-Tex and many other technical details.
Here we present you two complete outfits out of the collection, consisting of jackets and matching pants, in both beige/brown and black. On the chest, the jackets feature a Carhartt tag and on the lining both brand tags have been placed.
We are pretty sure, this is a collaboration by Carhartt Europe and Burton, which might mean, that it will not be released in the US. But we cannot confirm that yet. Images via Les Coureurs.
Now check out detailed images of the first product out of the Carhartt x Burton collaboration after the jump.
