Canterbury of New Zealand, the makers of rugby gear and official supplier to the All Blacks New Zealand rugby team, is venturing into fashion. For F/W 10, the brand has launched a capsule collection, unlike its previous collections, based around its Kiwi heritage and rugby signature. Deep purples and washed vintage reds prevail in the collection; in terms of styles, highlights include classic numbers such as a down-filled nylon gilet with a checked cotton lining and a zip-front cotton hoody with kangaroo pockets. The collection will be distributed in the UK exclusively, with plans to sell the S/S 11 offering in Europe, Middle East, New Zealand, South Africa and Australia.
