Alpha Industries returns with the second drop of its Fall/Winter 2017 collection, which we showcase here with their new lookbook.
For the new season, the brand takes design references from the U.S. Military Parariggers during the Persian Gulf War in the early 1990s. Responsible for the packing and repairing of parachutes, Parariggers are required to have a full understanding of fabrics, hardware and construction. Due to their knowledge, they were often enlisted with patching together uniforms in midst of a mission using whatever resources they had.
With that said, the Fall/Winter 2017 is inspired by these customization skills, shown via the introduction of new and innovative material combinations, coupled with unique detailing.
Also, Alpha found inspiration from the Persian Gulf War in the 1990’s, seen via embroidery on the back that displays “Desert Storm 92-93” World Tour stops and comes in a Chocolate Chip Camo variations.
Additional styles include the Quartermaster Field Coat Long, MA-1 Natus in Commander Red and the MA-1 Long.
The new Alpha Industries FW17 collection is available now at the brand’s online store.
