Woolrich presents the spring/summer 2018 menswear collection
At the crossroads where life outdoors, far off the well-beaten path, and the urban dynamism of the city meet amid the changing seasons, contemporaneity and multipurpose designs take shape in the new spring/summer collection from Woolrich.
The search for the perfect balance between the great outdoors and the city is expressed by Woolrich through convertible garments, stratified in multi-functional layers, easily flowing from one use to the next, just like the passage of the seasons.
The most outdoorsy soul shines through in this spring’s outerwear: the soft shell Plum Run Track Jacket is both waterproof and breathable, and features light padding in Thermore Ecodown, perfect for fluctuating temperatures. A metamorphic, quick-to-adapt attitude is perfectly captured by the Pacific Jacket with an adjustable hood, breathable fabric, and pockets sealed by waterproof zips.
State of the art outerwear dedicated to performance, the Teton family (a label which is exclusive to the Woolrich brand and which fully embodies the highest levels of outdoor technology) includes the GTX Mountain Jacket, made in partnership with GORE-TEX®, and updated with a new silhouette in Paclite fabric. This iconic garment, created in the 1970s, features a hood, a chest welt pocket and heat-sealed finishes for 100% waterproofing. It’s a concept that the GTX 3 in 1 Mountain Parka renders sublime, with the creation of two overlapping garments, each one able to be worn on its own. The GTX 3 in 1 Mountain Parka features a removable, 90% down, 10% feather fill inner padding. Worn together, the inner and outer layers create a sophisticated, incredibly warm padded parka. The inner layer, once detached, becomes a down jacket for the last temperature drops, while the outer shell becomes a light parka for late spring.
Adapted for the metropolis, the Military Field Jacket and Parka evoke nature in their details, such as the historic check pattern on the inner shoulder lining. The paradigm of balance between the outdoors and urban necessities returns for the summer collection.
If the reversible Travel jackets and Shore jackets are colored with paisley and camouflage prints, colonial elegance adapted for a safari, the Crew Bomber in cotton twill, the Southbay Bomber and the Gore pack light in bright red, look to other latitudes, more specifically, to American East Coast preppy. Nuances that would be right at home in the Pacific, with a capsule collection of t-shirts, designed in collaboration with The Aloha Shirt brand, which expands on patterns and reproduces the brand’s historic graphics while maintaining the original effect of the jacquard weave label.
The color palette is a voyage in neutral tones, hues of the forest floor, beige, grey and deep-sea blues, which act as the backdrop for bright, colorful flashes of yellow and Klein blue on the outerwear.
This summer season, Woolrich Footwear continues, as the brand strengthens its presence in the world of footwear with a project which echoes the values of the iconic brand. Born of the union between the high-performance elements that outdoor footwear is known for and urban, contemporary design, this collection introduces refined aspects to the most outdoorsy models and technical elements to the most metropolitan models. Light and practical styles, with colorful bands to embellish the sneakers and slippers, are joined by the super light slip-ons, the trainers and the tennis shoes with cup soles, all designed for the warm summer weather.
A symbol of the mix between the outdoors and life in the city, however, the trail boot comes in high and low top versions: the Vibram running sole meets essential, minimalist, clean lines with a fluorescent twist for contrast. In lined suede, the Air Mash model is comfortable as you hike mountain trails or pound the hot pavement in the heart of the city.
