After dropping their recent collaboration with Lands’ End, Rowing Blazers is back with their new lookbook for its FW19 collection. Inspired by ’80s and ’90s culture, the upcoming collection takes yuppie culture elements from films like St. Elmo’s Fire, which takes places in the brands founder Jack Carlson’s alma mater, Georgetown, as well as sitcom classic Friends and blends with neo-ivy themes.
In what it’s calling “post-ivy, a play on Take Ivy – a Japanese anthropological study of American campus culture in the late ‘50s, Rowing Blazers FW19 continues the brands trend on merging world’s of collegiate attire, streetwear, and nostalgia into one.
Many key pieces include the wide-leg cotton twill trouser and chore coat that are offered in a range of bright colors; English-made cricket sweaters; graphic tees inspired by Carlson’s academic background; color blocked and intricately embroidered rugby shirts emblazoned with heraldic and Aztec motifs; and British and Italian tartan and tweed suit separates.
We also get our first look at the company’s next collaboration with Sperry Top-Sider as well as English outwear brand Barbour.
Rowing Blazer’s FW19 collection will be released in multiple deliveries beginning Thursday, September 12, at rowingblazers.com and the Rowing Blazers shops in New York and Los Angeles. Take a closer look at the collection in the gallery above.
