This week’s Wellgosh Wears combines calming neutral tones with bold, abstract colours for maximum impact, with a versatility that balances smart and casual for a plethora of different events and scenarios. Starting from the outer layer, Rains provides a neo-Scandinavian aesthetic, paired with waterproof and lightweight functionality in the Cement version of their ever-popular raincoat. The coat features a fishtail style hem, usually synonymous with parka jackets worn by the Mod subculture in the 1960s, with a peaked hood, dual side pockets and a secure snap fastened closure.
For added warmth, the Sitting Pear Puffer Vest from Dutch abstract artist Pieter Janssen’s brand Parra delivers a cosy feel with a warm synthetic fill. The durable nylon outer shell gives a clean minimal aesthetic, whilst the bold print of the lining withholds the brand’s use of bright colours and Picasso-esque shapes. The vest “Pears” (sorry) perfectly with the Sitting Pear knitted pullover that’s become a firm favourite with shop staff and customers alike. This regular fit sweater features an all-over print with a surreal Pear donning high heels, built up from different curved shapes and colours for a truly unique look. The jumper’s cotton construction ensures breathability, finished tastefully with thick rib-knit hems and a wide gage collar, made with attention to detail in Portugal.
When it comes to cargo pants, Carhartt has got it sussed. The regular cargo pants are crafted from a durable Columbia cotton ripstop, with dual side, rear and cargo pockets with drawstring ankle cuffs for a customisable fit. The iconic woven Carhartt logo decorates one of the cargo pockets, contrasting with the black finish of the garment.
Ending on a classic, the Clarks Wallabee gets a two-tone suede makeover with a light shade of brown on the middle panel, and a darker brown panel wrapping around the outside. A contrasting off-white collar adds a distinctive look, accompanied by a light embroidered motif to complement the toe panel stitching, all sat upon a durable crepe sole.
