W'Menswear was founded by Lauren Yates in 2015, born out of a desire to produce high quality, heritage-inspired garments for women - with a nuanced and ever-evolving perspective on femininity at the intersections of fashion, workwear, military garments, and history. Originally operating out of a converting shipping container in Bangkok, the brand has grown substantially with each new collection, employing specialty and custom fabrics as well as partnering with local workshops & artisans.
Part of the W'Menswear x Randolph Engineering collab, inspired by the women of the Mercury 13 Space Program, who pioneered the advancement of women in spaceflight during the early 1960s. The collection makes heavy used of recycled C-9 parachute fabric, a nod to Lauren's history re-working vintage garments, and is meticulously produced by a small team of female artisans with both the knowledge and skill to work such a challenging material.
The Crazy Para-Parka was an immediate hit at S&S - it's a relaxed unisex garment, made from two layers of recycled C-9 parachute fabric with a sandwich-quilted lightweight fill, a color blocked design, and a comfortable fit. It's got a "floating" internal pocket pouch that the entire garment can be folded into for easy storage, and a kangaroo pocket with sandblasted zip closures. It's cut with raglan sleeves and an adjustable hood for maximum comfort and ease of movement.
Fits true to size. Dry clean only.
