Goldwin has just collaborated with heritage brand Kaptain Sunshine for a snow-ready capsule collection and not a minute too soon.
One of the largest outdoors brands in the world, Goldwin is also behind names like The North Face Purple Label, Nanamica and heritage brand Woolrich (it owns a minority share of the American brand). It produces premium outdoor gear across all categories using cutting edge fabrics like Gore-Tex, Kodenshi down and Pertex. Kaptain Sunshine, on the other hand, began in 2013 and is helmed by Japanese designer Shinsuke Kojima, a founding editor of a popular Japanese outdoors magazine Huge. It focuses on goods inspired by vintage Americana and militaria. Together, the old-school partners with the new-school for one of the best collaborations we’ve seen all year.
Titled “Snow Dweller,” the collection is made up of four pieces which include a parka and snow pants as well as two quilted pullovers. Each piece is designed to handle all manner of snowy conditions and is built with windproof and waterproof Gore-Tex fabric as well as taped seams and waterproof zippers.
Snow Dwellers officially drops today at Goldwin’s San Francisco store, their first brick & mortar in the U.S., and is available starting Friday, December 13 online at Goldwin’s website.
