We had the chance to meet with Erin Wignall, the women’s designer at Obey and she personally walked us through the line. For Fall 2009, the collection is broken up into two themes: “Cosmic” and Military Nautical. The Cosmic collection takes its influence from the 1970’s – think the Rolling Stones at their prime. The collection features details like motorcycle zippers, distressed denim and a dark androgynous look. The color palette for Cosmic is black, white and grey with a dose of metallic thrown in. The metallic touch represents the “disco” part of the Seventies.
The second theme is a military look influenced by the Navy with a bit of French Nautical as well. The line includes sailor stripes, pea coats, roll collar jackets and sweaters. The Nautical collection includes lots of wool and chambray with the color palette featuring navy and mustard yellow.
Each season Obey works on 2 special projects: an artist collab and an awareness project. For Fall 09, Obey created a special M65 jacket featuring a photo by Al Rockoff (pictured above). For the upcoming awareness project expect to see a t-shirt benefiting a great cause.
