The Air Mailman

The Air Mailman - Mailman - Men's Wear

Long time not seen in times of emails: envelopes for air mails. Are these love letter pants promising a high flight?

Two pieces on this page are really long in fashion; they haven't changed in their basic design. Can you imagine which the old fashioned ones are?

Black/grey suit in asymmetric 'Jekyll & Hyde' cut by Neil Barrett and Palladium boots designed by Neil Barrett, FW 2010/11. The Palladium boots are upgraded by the British, now in Milan living designer Neil Barrett. The special edition of the military 'Baggy'-boot in three leather variations premiered under the title ‚Palladium by Neil Barrett’ on the runway at the Milan Fashion Week in January 2010.

When Palladium was founded in 1920, the French label produced tires for the aviation industry. Since 1947, the Palladium boot's basic design hasn't changed. It was originally created for the French Government to supply the legendary French Foreign Legion that was mostly stationed in North Africa (Algeria, Morocco, Atlas Mountains). After its military usage, it was discovered for workwear, and became later a fashion statement for adventure and the exploration of unknown or forgotten places.
