Summer has arrived early with the Desert Expedition Collection by Dickies Life
Dickies Life have recently introduced the Desert Expedition Collection, with the set presenting a range of comfortable and functional products, made to be worn in warmer climates. Inspired by 1930s desert expedition attire, these timeless silhouettes can be pieced together to make an authentic utility look within the modern urban world.
Drawing key features from classic workwear and military-style clothing, the Glyndon Pant is one of these styles in the new collection, inspired by Fatigue trousers and its history within the US army. Officers would use these trousers for training and utility work purposes, and then this was taken on by various subcultures such as skateboarders. These subcultures would prefer this style of trouser due to how durable the fabric was and the overall construction of the item of clothing. It also comes in a short style, perfect for the summer months.
Other pieces which stand out within the collection include the Glyndon Vest and Funkley Shirt, which can be paired together to make a statement. They can also be styled with any of the other pieces from the collection with ease. The Cuban style Quamba shirt is the perfect boxy and breezy piece of clothing for the summer-time, and is available in both men’s and women’s sizes. Also, the Comba Cargo pant for women features a high waist, which can be perfectly paired with the Mapleton vest.
Tiger camo print of yellow, light pink and navy has been used across the entire collection, with the fabrics being kept light and seasonal. The collection finishes off with a bucket hat, socks and a towel – all staple pieces when in warm weather. It looks as if the Desert Expedition Collection is surely going to sell out, with Dickies once again bringing the most stylish, yet extremely comfortable, products just in time for the summer.
Founded almost 100 years ago in 1922, Dickies has been the number one brand to go to when it comes to work garments. Their products are extremely durable and functional, with an array of subcultures taking on the brand and making it their own, ranging from tattoo artists to bikers.
