Nigel Cabourn's website has just been relaunched and among other things, it features a full preview of his Spring/Summer collection. I won't say too much about it now as I'm sure we'll be highlighting many of these things in detail over the next few months. Overall though, it's based on the contents of Nigel's father's army handbook. He used this as a diary in Burma and India between 1942 and 1945. Many of the new pieces are inspired by photographs he took and the clothing he wore at the time. The rest of the site provides all the information you'd expect with trademark attention to detail. The imagery is well chosen and beautifully presented, the product shots are great and there's several interesting sections under development. The highlight though has to be the glimpses we're given of Nigel's vintage collection. There's five pieces featured at the moment, but I'd imagine this section will gradually be updated, providing rare insight into the inspiration behind the brand. On a side note, I'd also like to thank Nigel, Drew, Ali and everyone else at Cabourn for using my words and James' photography as part of the biography. To be included is a massive honour, not only for us personally but for Inventory as a whole.
