Edun is insistently global: Backed by an Irish-born globe-trotting rock star, supported by a French conglomerate, produced in Africa, India, and Asia. No surprise, then, to hear that its latest collection was inspired by the idea of a "global quilt," drawing from traditions worldwide.
Things were weighted slightly toward the Scottish—tartans were widespread throughout, as were twists on Fair Isle motifs—but there were also nips and tucks from sea to shining sea. If "global" is right, so is "quilt." An Edun piece tends not to reinvent the wheel, but to accent it with patches (often literal ones) from hither and yon. So the black leather moto jackets came with lapels in tartan wool, and nylon flak jackets had leather pocket details.
Elsewhere, disparate elements were fused, like knit jackets with contrast sleeves, or slouchy sweatpants in suiting herringbone. Slouch—there's another key word for the label. Its silhouettes tend toward the relaxed. But for world travelers, comfort is king.
