With its new collection, clothing brand Richardson taps into the stylish potential of blue collar fashion. The theme of the Spring/Summer 2018 collection combines utility, comfort and that militant pre-loved look that has been dominating the industry of late. From an autobahn coverall made out of 100% cotton canvas with signature Richardson branding on the back to a Strawberry Teamster Nylon Bomber with a retro silk-screened graphic, the Spring/Summer 2018 range is made within the United States and boasts unisex silhouettes.
The blue collar fashion collection also highlights a wool knit sweater that is subtly embroidered on the chest and on the shoulder. The piece is a collaborative effort with Japan's Bonjour Records.
All in all, the Spring/Summer 2018 collection crates a dynamic transitioning of status, blurring the line between blue collar fashion and luxurious extravagances within streetwear.
