WOOLRICH WITH HISTORY: For the 180th anniversary of the Woolrich brand, Italy’s WP Lavori in Corso, which produces the upscale Woolrich John Rich & Bros. contemporary label under license, has created a limited edition capsule collection. In stores this fall, the 17 items for men and women include a parka, field jacket, T-shirt, vest, blazer, bag and car blanket, all inspired by the rich archives of the Pennsylvania-based brand. “Our head of design found this untouched roll, wrapped in brown paper with a handwritten note: ‘Fabric Made 1800 to 1900. Keep. J.W. Rich.’ It’s moments like these when you realize the real history we are dealing with,” said Andrea Cane, creative director of the line. Only 180 pieces of each style will be produced, with retail prices ranging from $98 to $995.
