A limited edition Consortium update of the Penfield Kasson hooded mountain parka will be released tomorrow – Saturday 27th October 2012, available in very limited numbers exclusively from the Consortium store in Bournemouth and www.consortium.co.uk.
This Penfield x Consortium collaboration (offered in a choice of four classic colourways) takes Penfield’s infamous Kasson hooded mountain parka and adds a medium pile sherpa fleece lining through the body and hood, and quilted sleeve lining with insulating wadding.
An idea conceived by Consortium’s founder Nat Rendell and developed in conjunction with Manesh Mistry and Ben Allnutt of the Penfield design team.
The collaboration transforms the Penfield Kasson jacket from a lightweight water resistant favourite into a well priced technical & insulated winter coat.
The photo shoot below was taken by Dan Lilley, a customer and friend of Consortium. Dan studied commercial photography at AUCB Bournemouth, graduating in 2012 and winning the AUCB school of media award.
The photos feature Bournemouth skateboards Nicky Porter, Jamie Platt, Sebastian Braun & James Yorke-Saville in our seaside surroundings and at various local spots.

The Adidas Campus 80s Kzk Inspired Pack drops on 7th September 2012.
This Adidas Campus 80s Kzk Inspired Pack is a strong follow on from the Kazuki Kuraishi designed Adidas Superstar 80s CLOT, released back in July earlier this year.
The Kazuki Kuraishi inspired Adidas Campus 80s pack takes direct inspiration from Kazuki’s sneaker treatments of previous seasons, and Kazuki’s DNA is clear to see in his use of snake skin heel tabs, woven taping, and rich pigskin suede uppers.
Available in a choice of three colourways – Black 1/Black 1/Legacy, Craft Gold F12/Craft Gold F12/Legacy & Lab Green/Lab Green/Legacy.
Throughout the 1980s, the Adidas Campus reigned supreme on the courts, in the streets and at the skate park. September 2012 welcomes a Kazuki inspired premium three colour pack update of this infamous classic sneaker.

The Levi’s X Nike SB August drop has arrived, and this collaborative collection includes Levi’s X Nike SB 511 Skateboarding Jeans in a stretch & moisture wicking ‘dri-fit’ denim, available in Rigid Indigo, Rigid Black & a Kato finish.
The fit is the same as the Levi’s X Nike SB 511 Skateboarding Team Edition Jean released last month, and the denim has still been developed with and produced by Cone Mills using a ‘WATER LESS’ ecological manufacturing process, but by moving the manufacturing to Cone Mills Mexican plant and weaving the denim without Vectran, Levi’s have been able to reduce the retail price considerably.
This drop also sees the addition of a Levi’s X Nike SB Trucker Jacket (or Type III Jacket), produced in the same Cone Mills stretch & moisture wicking ‘dri-fit’ denim and available in both Rigid Indigo & a Sioux finish.
To wrap things up there’s a limited edition in store only quickstrike Nike SB X Levi’s Dunk Low Premium in black denim, with a varsity red embroidered Nike text logo on the heel moustache of the left shoe & a varsity red embroidered Levi’s Batwing logo on the heel moustache of the right shoe.
With the US BMX team set to come out wearing Levi’s jeans & Nike SB shoes later today this release is an Olypmic celebration from two major US brands, and with industry rumours of a full Levi’s Skateboarding collection on the not too distant horizon these collectable collaboration pieces give us some insight into future releases.
