Let’s start the presentation of the new patterns with the Albors trousers. With two young boys, I spend my days running after them or on the floor, at home or at the park, so my dresses and skirts are gathering dust in my wardrobe. I needed a pair of trousers, comfortable and practical in all situations. Workwear as inspiration is not new for me (hello Tello jacket), so naturally, it came back when I was designing this new collection and the Albors trousers in particular.
Albors has a classic shape : a regular high waist (just below the navel), hip hugging and then straight wide legs with a cropped length.
What set it apart are the numerous pockets and topstitching : big patch pockets on the back and the front, tool pockets on the side and hammer loop on the other. The curved waistband also has some buttoned tabs. And you can choose between a button fly or zip fly, the booklet comes with both instructions.
I think Albors is a great basic pair of trousers : with or without all the pockets, contrasting or matching topstitching, zip or button fly, it has everything!
As for fabric, you should look for medium weight fabric with body : cotton canvas, gabardine, denim, corduroy… and most importantly, have fun with the topstitching!
Here, Maria is wearing a size 38, made in off-white cotton canvas (available soon) with contrasting topstitching.
