This autumn, Samsøe Samsøe joins forces with the iconic workwear brand Kansas to create a capsule collection for men and women that profiles everything the season demands in terms of durability and function.

Fusing design savvy with centuries-old manufacturing expertise, the new collection is the result of extensive research in the Kansas archives, where classic workwear fabrics have been transformed into modern yet functional pieces with urban appeal. True to our common Nordic roots, form and function marry on styles that look as good as they perform,
underpinning the importance of covering up to protect against the elements.

Exploring texture and traditional utility fabrics, cotton twill, heavy-weight satin twill and retrolook fleece are shaped into a series of jackets, shirts and trousers trimmed with functional details such as pockets, zips and thumb holes.
Enduring icons of outerwear are transformed through high-end performance materials in relaxed cuts: a hardworking GoreTex jacket with reflective panels works equally well over a city suit as facing the elements in the great outdoors. A bomber jacket for her is both practical and chic on and off the grid, especially when layered over the collection’s thermal trousers. Rendered in a palette of camel, navy and sea moss green, the capsule is completed with an essential white tee and a quilted shell cross-body bag.

Fitting seamlessly with autumn’s North Sea Nostalgia collection, where the wild and windswept Danish west coast shapes a versatile collection of contrasts, the new Samsøe Samsøe X Kansas capsule is available online and in stores from October 2019.
