Today, Edwin Europe unveiled its latest capsule collection, Surplus — a 15-piece collection with a focus on minimalism and functionality.
As part of Edwin Europe’s expansion on its foundation in denim, the label looks to a more modernist collection to sit neatly alongside the main line. Aimed at the more discerning male within the growing premium mid-market, the Surplus collection uses a selection of hand-picked premium fabrics, including Japanese selvedge denim, organic denim, technical fine ripstop and an ample offering of mid-tone twill. The tightly edited collection is created from dead-stock fabrics — meaning that units on offer are very limited. The collection was showcased at the F/W 13 edition of Bread & Butter, where the Stylesight denim team got a chance to take a close and detailed look at the range on offer:
Key pieces in the line include the S+1 jean (based on the ED-80 fit) offered in a sleek black selvedge and an 11oz organic denim featuring a beautiful multi-color nep. A range of smart chore coats, simple shirts and shorts are offered as part of the mid-season drop with the broken hickory stripe and a sharp black chambray as particular highlights. To create a clean premium finish, all fabrics are unwashed and each item is detailed with tonal topstitching with each piece signed off with an embroidered “+” symbol, positioned to respect the subtle aesthetic of each garment.
