BALR. has released its Autumn Winter 2019 collection featuring some classic military-inspired jackets and a welcome return of dark camo prints.
BALR. is a Dutch brand founded in 2013 by professional football players Demy de Zeeuw and internet entrepreneurs Ralph de Geus and Juul Manders.
The brand is focused on creating high-quality luxury items designed to inspire people to live a lavish lifestyle like a ‘baller’.
BALR. has a history of dropping some excellent military inspired apparel, including bomber jackets, outerwear and some truly epic dark camo prints (SS18 comes to mind).
AW19 continues the trend with a drop featuring some must cop military-inspired highlights including two bomber jackets, a coat with a flight jacket style shearling collar, navy camo outwear and even some incognito swims shorts.
Let's take a look at the military-inspired highlights from the collection.
All Over Camo T-shirt
Last time out BALR. dropped a collection of black on white with stark branding.
BALR. has retained the bold branding in a few pieces of its classic ‘Brand T-shirt’ but added a navy camo edge. Would look great with dark denim jeans and white low tops.
Gun Metal Badge Camo Down Coat
Well insulated with down, this Down Coat features a wind-resistant shell, which will keep you warm even on the coldest streets.
The ribbed cuffs and drawstring hood provide refuge from the elements. The dark camo print will have you standing out rather than blending in (in a good way).
Shearling Collar Jacket Black
The Shearling Collar Jacket Black is a stylish contemporary jacket with a design nod to military flight jackets with a warm shearling collar.
Well insulated with down this jacket also has nice quality details like the silver logo on the chest and hexagon zip.
Gun Metal Badge Camo Bomber
Stuffed with insulating down, this contemporary bomber might be our favorite from the collection.
Cut from a wind-resistant shell, with ribbed cuffs and drawstring hood it is warm but also striking in dark camo.
LOAB Hexagon Bomber Black
Yet another fresh new take on a cornerstone of military fashion, the bomber jacket. The LOAB Hexagon Bomber Jacket is a high-quality, well-designed bomber with a nice hexagonal print. MOAB is a military acronym for ‘Mother of All Bombs’. I wonder if LOAB is an acronym for Lord Of All Bombers?
Camo Swim Shorts
These quick drying Big Brand Camo Swim Shorts feature the alluring camo print but look quite understated while on. Pockets and an elasticated waistband provides functionality you need at the beach or pool.
