Trainerspotter x Liberty

For me this collaboration nearly 7 years ago is still one of the best things to come out UK 'streetwear'. Trainerspotter and Liberty have teamed up again....




Directed by Steven Mann and shot by Neil Bedford.

'In 2003 Trainerspotter reinvented the iconic 1980's Windjammer jacket with a literal interpretation of sport meets fashion. By taking the silhouette of a staple piece of sportswear and then (de) constructing it by juxtaposing the lightweight waterproof nylon against floral Liberty print fabric they created a true sports fashion garment.

The jackets were an immediate success in the UK and Japan, with a high demand they sold out quickly and were repeated in small limited runs over the season.

For spring summer 2010 Trainerspotter have been asked to revisit this project by Liberty of London and produce 3 new Trainerspotter x Liberty Jammers.

The result is three luxe versions of the 2003 originals. Made in England from floral Liberty prints with British Millerain wax cotton, Nickel Swiss RiRi zippers, Worsted Wool rib cuffs and cotton cambric lining, each style of limited numbered editions and can be found exclusively at Liberty of London.'
