The Bacon code is story of shapes, style and soul. It’s pushing the boundaries of what already exists. It’s the way you move through the streets, and in the world, coming as you are, driven by independence, and individualism. It’s high product performance with an attitude, inspired by the city, conceived for the everyday. The Bacon code is a contemporary take on design, lightness warmith.
Bacon Clothing’s new winter collection is the ultimate expression of the brand’s key codes – shape, style and soul – and of its constant drive to turning the ordinary into the extraordinary.
The concept of a utility down jacket, usually intended as a versatile, comfortable and protective garment, is here elevated through a visionary and bold design approach that expands and reconfigures every silhouette with unprecedented shell-volumes and edgy customizations created exclusively for the brand.
Shapes take center stage with two new iconic design concepts that blur the line between technical outerwear and urban sophistication. The Double B styles are built with a layered double collar and a high-low bottom cut that heightens the embracing feel while giving it presence and attitude. They’re also marked with a rubberized statement label embossed with the Bacon logo in a glossymatte finish.
The Superleggero (Superlight) models are surprisingly light and fluffy despite their amplified Puffa contours filled with pure goose feathers just like any other piece of the collection. Their resin-coated nylon texture and printed surfaces blend performance and refinement standing out as the ideal choice for “those who live on the move”.
The carry-over Cloud style is taken to the next level introducing a lengthened drawstring model and the short or extra-long shapes in vivid monochromes. The range also features the Cloudy iterations enriched with eco-leather and fleece inserts that are expertly stitched together.
In this narrative, the iconic Big bear cloud appears in a fashionable peacock blue tone for added impact. The season continues with the enveloping proportions of the Dada styles, detailed with a shawl collar and a belt, and the boxy, double-breasted cut of the Dalia styles, while an edited selection of Bomber jackets in a variety of colors completes the line-up.
On the background of this shape-driven vision, a strong distinguishing note is given by the appearance of fresh edgy prints and bright finishes that further subvert the traditional notion of your everyday down jacket. Whether rendered with a soft cotton hand feel, a resilient waterproof treatment or a crisp tactile feel, the nylon texture acts as an open landscape to experiment with colors and motifs with no limits or diktats.
Thus come the camouflage-inspired stains made with the tiedye print technique, the optical houndstooth motif in black & white, the shimmering metallic effects and the color block blends in tonal shades and contrasting hues. That’s The Bacon Code.
