Invista’s Cordura brand’s ‘Re/Mastered’collection, with garments by Monsieur-T, international fashion studio, is on display at Kingpins, a famous denim expo, held in Amsterdam, Netherlands, on April 19 and 20, 2017. The display is made using specially engineered Cordura fabrics from leading mills Arvind, Artistic Milliners, Cone Denim, and Kipas.

The silhouettes created for the collection borrow from the functional shapes and authentic details of iconic garments from the past, taking inspiration from workwear, motorcycling, and even military applications.

From ‘60s fire-fighter jackets to brewery aprons to mechanic’s coveralls, the collection re-imagines these original pieces, “remastering” each garment using the latest cutting-edge Cordura denims.

Arvind’s classic Cordura denim is well washed and worn and has been hammered hard in the line of duty. It is highlighted in a 1940s-style Belgian coverall with genuine detailing borrowed from the versatile work uniform of the traditional army mechanic.

Artistic Milliners’ heavy duty, indigo blue, specially engineered 15 osy Cordura denim has been uniquely re-mastered for a heritage workwear outfit that mixes a 1960s-style Swiss fireman’s jacket, with a classic pant and a traditional German work apron.

Taking inspiration from across Europe and different decades of the 20th century, a classic 1960s-style Dutch utilitarian field jacket combined with retro French motorcycle pants has been reimagined through Cone
Denim’s vintage-inspired Cordura red-edge selvage denim.

Kipas Cordura canvas fabric has been custom-dyed in British Khaki to create a heritage work outfit featuring a 1920s-style classic French workwear pant, a reinvented fireman’s jacket, and a German brewery apron.

All garments in the Re/Mastered collection are specially dyed and finished by the Denim Authority team in Tunisia to give the fabrics the authentic worn heritage look and feel that is central to the collection’s style.

Cindy McNaull, global Cordura brand and marketing director said, “The Re/Mastered collection is a true embodiment of ‘heritage meets innovation’. Through this collaboration, we’re able to work with our valuable authorised mills, ‘Monsieur-T’ and Denim Authority to create a vintage yet high-tech collection.”

Tilmann Wröbel, founder of Monsieur-T said, “Studio designs with Cordura denim and vintage flair makes for trend-driven utility clothing. Our dream was to combine science and innovation in products that showed a human touch through signs of time and wear, and the addition of Cordura fabrics from some of the world’s leading denim mills really brought the collection to life.” (GK)
