WOOLRICH celebrates 190th anniversary with special installation at Pitti Uomo 97

In honour of the brand’s 190th year, Woolrich returns to Pitti Uomo 97 with The Ultimate Woolrich Experience at La Dogana in Florence. Three installation rooms will provide a unique, immersive experience exploring the multifaceted Woolrich universe and premiering the Woolrich Arctic Capsule, a tribute to the evolution of the original Arctic Parka.

About Woolrich:
Woolrich is the oldest outdoor clothing brand present in the United States, and is a global outerwear brand leader.
The brand’s history runs parallel with America’s own, alongside the endless train tracks that were built in Pennsylvania in the 19th Century. And it was right there in Pennsylvania, in 1830, where John Rich established his first wool factory.

“Comfort, Durability, Resistance, Warmth, Simplicity” are the key words of the Woolrich brand for the last 186 years.
The Woolrich John Rich & Bros. collection reflects the Woolrich heritage by combining the brand’s historical identity with a contemporary interpretation of iconic Americana. The sophisticated take on military, outdoor, and utilitarian style results in a collection of outerwear and sportswear that redefine American style with worldwide design influences. The Original Woolrich Arctic Parka, introduced in 1972 for the workers of the Alaskan pipelines and now considered the quintessential down parka, is the worldwide-recognized brand icon and symbol.
The design matrix is inspired by the history of American clothing including military, utilitarian, and outdoor living interpreted in a sophisticated metropolitan style.
