San Francisco spirit inspires rugged yet refined khaki collection

DOCKERS’ Fall/Holiday Collection

This season, Dockers introduces its Fall/Holiday Collection with the theme “Fall into Khaki.” For its latest collection, the Dockers brand draws inspiration from many of the local arts and trade movements native to the khaki leader’s home-base: San Francisco, California.

A symbol of diversity, immigration and mixing cultures, San Francisco is an amazing departure from cultural monotony and the mainstream.

The Dockers Fall/Holiday 2013 product range is replete with a solid foundation of both rugged and refined design options, each informed with the special, creative details inherent and unique to the Northern California region.

Another area influencing the designers’ vision for Fall/Holiday 2013 is the art of bookmaking. The delicate precision executed by skilled bookbinders, typographers and print-setters inspired the Dockers design team’s attention to detail.

The collection’s color and finish direction, the season’s palette takes its blues, purples, grays and greens from the region’s maritime heritage, linked to the San Francisco Bay. Further, the cool shades, unique surfaces and textures of both the area’s sea life and the uniforms worn by fishermen provide additional inspirational cues for the seasonal message.

Dockers has also revolutionized the once forgotten khaki with the launch of Dockers Alpha Khaki for the Alpha Males.

Infusing a mind-boggling array of colors and hues, Dockers Khakis brought the best features of denim with a more polished look of a chino, in a marriage that blurs the line between relaxed and refined.

The new Alpha Skinny Tapered is the slimmer of two O fits, offering a razor-sharp aesthetic. The Slim Tapered Alpha Khaki is a slim fit, which sits slightly below the waist with a tapered leg opening.

This new collection—and its assortment of fits—will dominate the season’s second delivery, offering a robust palette of colors and textures, along with corresponding tops to go with them.

Perfect for cooler temperatures, the collection likewise offers coats, vested waistcoats; heavy knit cardigans and an array of refined shirt styles, which are perfect for layering.

The season’s third delivery continues to build on some of the bespoke, finery touched on during the collection’s previous flows. The Dockers SF Khaki pants, now offered in both slim and skinny cuts, is available in a number of patterned wool fabrics. More than just on-trend, each of these items is developed with an appreciation for timeless design and is stitched with precision, using the best fabrics available.
