Capsule 006: Water
Drawn from the idea of water, the elemental force of nature symbolizing birth, life, purity and circularity, Capsule 006 is WE-AR4’s first summer collection. As always, the majority of the capsule’s materials are sourced from luxury deadstock with a focus on fine cotton and linen.
Ultralight silhouettes are designed with movement and ease in mind. Oversized kaftans crafted from cotton and linen are inspired by men’s shirts and cut to catch the breeze. Likewise a classic, crisp cotton button-down shirt that’s enhanced with an open back. The collection’s ethos of refined, utilitarian essentials is underscored with a flight romper and viscose linen overalls. A trucker jacket in sturdy cotton canvas with a soft terry hood is ideal for layering through transitional summer weather. Timeless summer tailoring comes through in neat Bermudas, cargo shorts and cropped pants. The palette is fresh, defined by white and chambray punctuated with sunny yellow and green.
For accessories, WE-AR4’s bags range from the Surplus Tote, an office-to-the-beach summer staple in cotton linen, to the Transit, a sporty, utilitarian nylon belt bag, to the Rogue Sling, a modern hybrid belt and messenger bag, cut for customers who are always in motion.
Capsule 006 was shot on location in Negril, Jamaica, where the crystal blue water highlighted the essence of the summer spirit.
