1 Piece, 3 Ways: Rock the Abington Raincoat

Rain, rain, go away — or don’t, actually.  We’ve got the Earthkeepers Waterproof Abington Raincoat, and we’re not afraid to look fabulous in it.  As part of our 1 piece, 3 ways series, here’s a few lovely looks our stylist created with the Abington raincoat as a most essential top layer:

Whether you’re pairing it with the season’s best boots, a feminine floral skirt or bright colors, the Abington’s classic style is a perfect match.  And because it’s been designed to be completely waterproof, you can count on the Abington raincoat to keep you (and your ever-changing outfit) dry in any weather.

The Earthkeepers Waterproof Abington Raincoat comes in gray sky-defying Juniper and Mid Blue colors, too; check them out.

Behind the Scenes with Abington

This is what happens when you let a group of the most influential artists in New York City loose with nothing but a box of shoes and a camera:

When it came time to create the imagery to present our Fall 2012 Abington Collection, we knew we needed a crew with expertise, style, creativity and passion — and we found it in 13th Witness, Zack McTee, Josh Madden, EIKNARF and Cody B. Ware.

You can see the end result of their collaborative effort in our Abington Fall 2012 catalog.  And for more behind-the-scenes action, stay tuned – we’ve got a series of videos featuring 13th Witness, EIKNARF and Josh Madden that we’ll be rolling out over the next few weeks.

Classic Meets Contemporary: The “Nadège Winter for Timberland” Collection

Parisian style icon Nadège Winter likes nothing more than to mix fashion, design and urban eco-awareness. You can imagine our delight when she approached our Timberland Europe team with her idea for “reinterpreting” our iconic classic yellow boot for women!

We connected Nadège, a freelance artistic director and communication consultant, with our long-time partner TRAID, a UK-based nonprofit that recycles, customizes and sells second-hand clothes to fund overseas development projects.  Together, they set out to create a collection of footwear that was both fashion-forward and environmentally-aware.

After rummaging through the stock in TRAID’s London warehouse in search of fabrics, Nadège opted for statement Liberty, bandana and floral motifs for her designs:

The end result is a series of uniquely beautiful boots that have kept all of their classic charm — honey nubuck skin, golden eyelets and original laces – but with fresh, stylish, light-hearted print detail.

Starting this month, the limited edition (1600 pairs) “Nadège Winter for Timberland” collection will be available exclusively at prominent outlets and Timberland® stores across Europe.

Fashion Fresh From the Sea

Maybe it’s a symptom of our Yankee frugality, but at Timberland we LOVE to recycle.  There’s something oddly thrilling about giving old stuff like plastic bottles and discarded tires a second life as recycled materials in our products.

And as we get more excited about recycling, we get a little crazy.  For example: Recycled coffee grounds in our S.Café® yarn (the grounds trap odors and absorb sweat — who knew?).  And when you’re designing a jacket and you need it to be waterproof and durable, why not start by thinking about other materials that are waterproof and durable?  Like, I dunno … fishing nets and ropes, salvaged from the ocean?

Introducing ReNet™ recycled nylon fabric:

Using ReNet™ in our products means less waste in the landfill (or worse – floating around in the ocean) — and wearing a jacket with ReNet™ in it gives YOU a whopper of a good story to tell on your next fishing trip.

Learn more about ReNet™ and the other recycled and renewable materials we use in our products in the Timberland Technology Guide.

1 Piece, 3 Ways: The Best of the BareStep

You’ve got places to go and things to pack, and struggling to cram 4 pairs of shoes into your bag kind of takes the wind out of your weekend sails.  We hear you.  That’s why Timberland’s women’s site now features tips and tricks from our stylist for making one pair of shoes work harder with more of your wardrobe … so you don’t have to expand the shoe section of your closet or bring an extra bag on your weekend getaways.

First up, the Earthkeepers BareStep Trail Oxford.  As a trail shoe, it will look (and feel) right at home on your morning hike … but the BareStep is also comfortable and stylish enough for window shopping, coffee-sipping, seashell hunting and whatever else might be on your agenda.   See?  Our friend Emily is all smiles in her BareSteps:

(Don’t forget: if you’re not a leather oxford lover, we’ve also got a sporty mesh version of the BareStep in light, bright colors, and a fun, feminine Mary Jane style.)

Summer might be winding down, but we’re just getting warmed up.  See more stylist ideas on how to wear 1 piece, 3 ways on our women’s website.
