Sempach is a relatively new label, with their Spring Summer 2016 collection only their second venture. the brainchild of Christian Wernle, the man behind Swiss Chriss. The lines are definitely blurred between where Swiss Chriss ends and Sempach begins, but frankly who cares when their jackets are this good.
The name Sempach comes from the Swiss Cycle Regiment who had their last parade on 1st May 2003 after 112 years of a proud history. Two tears later in 2005, an inspired Christian Wernle spotted a swiss army sleeping bag in a flea market, and realised it would make a great basis for some original timeless outerwear.
Their SS16 Collection specifically focuses on the details and materials of the classic field tent.
The tent inspiration in the garment features a range of key elements from the original tents, such as the light-weight cotton canvas with its rubberized-look coating, and details like the metal eyelets and the herringbone tape drawstring also used on the storage bags.
The Sattel is a modern breaker silhouette with button flap closure. Funnel neck with hood will keep you dry and stylish.
