NIGEL CABOURN LIMITED EDITION II >>> SCOTT'S LAST EXPEDITION
The Nigel Cabourn Limited Edition II Collection is based by the 100th Anniversary of this historic event. In preparation for this monumental celebration, Nigel Cabourn visited the Scott Polar Research Institute at the University of Cambridge. Founded in 1920 to honour the achievements of Captain R.F. Scott and his colleagues, the Scott PolarResearch Institute is dedicated to perpetuating the legacy of polar exploration and science through research, education and public outreach activities. The Institute investigates the significance of the polar regions in a changing world and continues topreserve and make accessible its world-leading collections of polar books, archival manuscripts, artworks and artefacts. Nigel Cabourn: “As a designer whose collections are inspired by history and real vintage clothing, my visit to the Polar Institute inspired me to base my AW12 collection on Scott and his team as a dedication to their fantastic feat. The wealth of information I found at the Institute spurred on my inspiration to create 12 individual garments that represent the achievements of Scott and his team on their last expedition. The Institute has a vast library of books on the Antarctic, and keeps the actual garments of the explorers, which have not only influenced my designs, but have inspired me to create new product developments for Harris Tweed, gabardine, and lambs wool as well as new buttons and trims. The aim of this collection is to honour these brave men and to produce real, hardwearing clothes that reflect each of the explorers. The persistence and courage of the five explorers have inspired me to create the Nigel Cabourn Authentic Limited Edition II Winter 2012 Collection. The 12 garments in this collection are inspired entirely by this fantastic expedition and produced in the United Kingdom with British fabrics where possible.” The Nigel Cabourn Authentic Limited Edition II, which follows the success of Limited Edition I "The Ascent Of Cabourn" in 2003, consists of 12 pieces, limited to about 100 pieces each on the outerwear and 300 pieces on the knitwear and accessories. Every garment has an individual sequenced number to show authenticity of the Limited Edition collection.
