Carhartt WIP

Behemoths of Outerwear

Denmark has hygge, Sweden has lagom, Scotland has còsagach – each word denoting a sense of coziness and contentment during the winter months. Typically, these are terms intended to be applied to an indoor space – but what if you could take the same feeling with you beyond your front door?

Carhartt WIP’s current Parkas are facilitators of such winter snugness. Behemoths of outerwear, such as the Anchorage and Siberian Parka provide insulation but also isolation, cocooning you from the outside world, even when you’re bang in the center of it. Each piece staves off the cold winter winds and careering sleet, without the need for any aesthetic sacrifice.

This series is captured by Rose Maisie Willoughby, a multifaceted London photographer who shoots a mix of fashion, portraiture and documentary.
