Russian skatebrand PACCBET has teamed up with Carhartt WIP to create a 12 piece capsule collection, in which it has reworked a selection of the brand’s iconic workwear-inspired styles.

Informed by the aesthetic of late ‘80s and early ‘90s skateboarding, as well as the oversized, boxy ts of Carhartt WIP’s earliest designs, the collection celebrates loose silhouettes, hardwearing simplicity and imposing graphics.

PACCBET, pronounced RASSVIET, means SUNRISE in Russian. Founded in 2016 by Gosha Rubchinskiy and a team of Russian skaters and artists, the brand represents a new generation of Russian youth culture, blending apparel with the country’s skate scene.

There’s a playful subversiveness to many of the pieces, as if PACCBET has hijacked a Carhartt WIP collection – the brand’s signature script font features, but spells out the name of its Moscow-based collaborator, and the typically austere Master Pant is spliced with an alternative colorway, creating a two-tone trouser. Elsewhere, the Detroit Jacket has been created in a washed denim and given new, bolder proportions, and the humble Pocket T-shirt appears with co-branded Carhartt WIP and PACCBET detailing. The result is a capsule which features familiar Carhartt WIP staples, but reinterpreted through the eyes of Russia’s burgeoning skate scene.

Available at DOVER STREET MARKET STORES, CARHARTT WIP STORES and selected skate shops.
