As far as I’m concerned lookbooks really can’t get any cooler than skateboarding around NYC in a Battenwear parka. We’ve reached the zenith here people, it’s not gonna get any better than this. With the current political static emanating from the USA at the moment it’s reassuring to know that whichever way the pendulum swings next week at least we can still rely on our star spangled spas to come up with the goods when it comes to making incredible outerwear (albeit with a fair amount of Japanese genius thrown in there too). Each Battenwear collection always manages to create a joy-filled ruckus in the Proper office as we’re once acgain taken by surprise at just how exciting we find it, followed by some serious debate trying to decide what the standout pieces are then finished off with a deep yearning to own every single last piece of it. Look for yourself, there’s not an average or ‘OK’ piece in there, it’s all proper, proper brilliant.
