Rainer Knapp, Creative director and owner of Alpha Industries Europe
Design Washed and vintage looks combined with bright colours on some of our classic core items, like the MA-1 and M-65 [jackets], will give this season a “fresh military” note. MA-1 and MA1 TTs have been central to the collection and will come in a special summer edition, in reversible styles and different colours and materials. Our main inspiration comes from our Alpha Industries archive in Knoxville, Tennessee.
Colours Our key colours will be coloured camouflage in different shades such as marine blue, while bright, vibrant colours including tomato red, hot blue and yolk yellow will also be important. Our classics - green, orange and blue - will have a place in the new collection.
Fabrics Our main fabrics are classic flight nylon, nyco satin and a special two-tone nylon that offers different waxed qualities.
Silhouettes The key silhouette shape will be slim.
