Just before he presented Project Wooster for PROJECT trade show earlier this year, Nick Wooster, the iconoclast of contemporary men’s fashion, asked twins Byron Peart and Messrs Dexter Peart to re-envision the use of camouflage in accessories today, a request where the brothers felt should be more than just about the print but about the user as well. What they came away with was the Nick Wooster x WANT Les Essentiels de la Vie collection, an accessories line based on the premises of minimalism yet heavy on function and style. With the just developed, seven-color MultiCam camouflage system as their base and accentuated with welded steel hardware by ITW Waterbury, the Peart Twins tackled all of the initial design objectives. Balanced those with hints of luxe like tan leather zipper pull and WANT Les Essentiels de la Vie’s signature gold silver zipper, and the result is a product suitable for any work settings.
The Nick Wooster x WANT Les Essentiels de la Vie – Heathrow Commuter Bag in Green MultiCam is currently available at select WANT retail locations, including SSENSE online store.
