This year marks a decade since Dutch streetwear emporium Patta first opened its doors in Amsterdam. Timed perfectly to celebrate the anniversary, the company recently teamed up with fellow streetwear heavy hitter, Carhartt Work in Progress—the more European-focused, forward-thinking offshoot of the Detroit-based workwear brand. As we’ve seen, Carhartt WIP has shown a knack for choosing exciting collaborators this year, having recently also worked with Sweden’s Polar Skate Co. The new Patta + Carhartt collection, dubbed “Wild at Hartt,” sees some of Carhartt WIP’s most iconic products remade in traditional workwear fabrics, among them the label’s original Dearborn canvas.
The line contains two jackets, a vest, pants, a hooded sweat and two hats, with the vest and sweat featuring the legend “Wild at Hartt” printed on the back. Carhartt’s signature workwear style is showcased in the denim pants, which have a contrasting fabric at the knee as well as tool pockets and a hammer loop. The tan and black colorways give the collection a decidedly late ’90s / early 2000s feel, but the simple cuts and sturdy fabrics mean these are garments that will be more than able to endure another decade of work and partying.
