Cult French fashion label Chevignon has been re-launched for autumn/winter 2011 and looks set to build up a devoted following all over again. Founded back in 1979, they were at the peak of their popularity in the late 1980s to early 90s with leather jackets and outerwear inspired by Americana work wear.
A stand out piece in the new collection (and a favourite of ours) is the iconic Togs Unlimited Down insulated jacket. These eye catching jackets feature a concealed hood within the collar, contrast leather shoulders and the instantly recognisable Duck Emblem on both the front and back of the jacket. The sleeves are zip fastening too, therefore detachable for unpredictable changes to the weather.
The Down Jacket was invented just over 70 years ago as a welcome alternative to heavy woollen clothing. These Chevignon jackets are lined with an 80/20 Down/Duck Feather mix to provide insulation for the harshest weather conditions while keeping the jacket lightweight and practical.
The Chevignon Togs Unlimited Jacket retails at around £425 and is available to buy at Sa-kis. Although the name may suggest otherwise, the number of jackets produced is limited; so to avoid disappointment head over to view the collection today.
