Outlier is never one to shy away from trying new things. For Winter 2016, the label presents its "Mutations in Material and Form" collection, highlighted by new materials, shapes, and a magno-mechanical closure system.
The winter delivery in turn consists of eight experimental layers of warmth. First off, three are built around the Fidlock Magno-Mechanical Toggles, a new way to close garments that combines magnetic and mechanical force to create faster and more secure closure. Next up are two new advanced forms of a wool-sythentic hybrid material, Purling Fleece and Lavalan insulation. And finally, we see three evolved garment shapes to create new ways to stay covered in colder temperatures.
The latter garment shapes include the Bandana Neck Merino T-Shirt, a hybrid of a T-shirt and a bandana to create a more adjustable neck for subtle temperature calibration and protection; the Doublefine Hooded Scarf, the merger of a substantive six-foot-long scarf and a simple hood to create a versatile source of warmth and effect; and the Doublefine Merino Balaclava, inspired by a military balaclava with an odd four piece "t-front" construction.
