hanon and WeSC have joined forces to present to us an exclusive capsule collection for 2016 – and we love it!
With both brands having a shared history of skateboarding and street-wear, and common ground via roots in the Northern Hemisphere, hanon and WeSC bring Scotland and Sweden together in a performance and utility inspired line of apparel and footwear.
Situated in Scotland on the edge of the North Sea and based in the city of Aberdeen, inspiration for the collection was drawn from hanon’s immediate surroundings of a landscape built almost entirely from granite and an ever chang- ing Scottish climate.
Up-specced and manufactured in Europe by WesC, the collection comprises of an Italian melton wool coach jacket, Portugese shirting and jersey, and a performance inspired Ghillie brogue, whilst the greyscale colour palette parallels the winter gloom and heavy weather experienced in both Sweden and Scotland.
Street-wear references are detailed throughout the line with military inspired flag patches, dual branded logo tees, weather resistant 5 panel caps and a classic watchman beanie. Additional reference points to hanon’s locale feature by way of a grey scaled flannel shirt in the tartan of Aberdeen, whilst red accents – the official colour of Aberdeen can be seen across the collection.
Available now from WeSC Concept stores and select retailers.
