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.
The F/W '23 collection, titled "Flying in Crosswinds", pays homage in part to Margaret "Maggie" Gee, a physicist and pilot, and one of the only two Chinese-American women to fly as a Women's Airforce Service Pilot (WASP) in WWII. These styles explore the way clothes have been used to reinforce and resist different political ideologies - repurposing and reimagining military styles into functional and flattering workwear.
An ideal outer shell, the High Altitude Duna is a three quarter length jacket with a quilted exterior and warm lining. Perfect for layering on top of your favorite knits and light outerwear, it's got two deep hand pockets for extra warmth and storage, and cuffs that can be buttoned shorter if desired. The whole thing is made from a sturdy 100% cotton drill fabric in a classic olive drab.
