As soon as we began planning CH Zambia we started collecting vintage safari jackets. When our friend Geren Lockhart, the LA-based designer behind Geren Ford, decided to join us on the trip we started talking about creating an awesome safari jacket. Realizing that creating a new jacket for both men and women in so many sizes in such a small run was going to cost a small fortune, Geren came up with the brilliant idea of making custom jackets for everyone from repurposed vintage safari gear—each tailored to a fellow traveler and one-of-a-kind. In this video we follow Geren from her LA studio to Africa to see her design process and the jackets in action.
