Canada Goose has recently unveiled a new two-part capsule collection for spring intriguingly titled Nomad. With a campaign that looks to Japan and its relationship to rain — the country has 50 words for it — it's a gorgeous piece of outerwear for the changeable season.
It also represents a first. Surprisingly (or maybe not) Nomad has seen Canada Goose partnering with GORE-TEX, combing the textile brand's tech with 60-plus years of Canada Goose's outdoor heritage and knowledge. What results is a capsule in two part: an outer rain shell known as the Nomad Jacket, and the quilted Nomad HyBridge Lite Jacket.
The jackets can be worn individually but work better (and are designed to work) as a system. The outer Nomad Jacket rain shell is waterproof and breathable, cut slim and with mesh venting underarm and under the back panel for airflow. The HyBridge Lite meanwhile is lightweight, water-resistant and designed for warmth. Strategically stitched in Tensile-Tech fabric means you can move easily, whether on city streets or on mountainsides.
While Canada Goose themselves shot the system in Tokyo and Wakayama Prefecture, we took it to the streets of the Japanese capital ourselves. Shot by rising photographer Lorenzo Dal Bosco and with fashion styling from Tatsuya Shimada, peep how we styled Canada Goose's next major foray into the spring season with our exclusive lookbook.
The Nomad capsule launches exclusively in the Canada Goose Sendagaya store in Tokyo from today, April 5. From Monday, April 8, Nomad drops at Canada Goose flagship stores, select retailers and online globally.
