Today, Peak Performance and Byredo’s Ben Gorham launch a new outdoor-ready collection. The unisex, multi-functional SS20 outdoor collection is titled “Possessions of My Soul.”
Designed with the testing conditions of Riksgränsen, Sweden (200 km north of the Arctic Circle) in mind, the collection is engineered to protect from sub-zero temperatures, with heavy rain and wind that quickly shifts to blue skies and sun.
Fabric highlights include technical textiles and pure merino wools, with packability and lightweight construction at top of mind.
“I’d never really been exposed to nature before, until I got into skiing, climbing and cold-water surfing and it really opened my mind to a different lifestyle. We walked through every imaginable weather, up and down. We sat down to eat. We stood still to take a break, took in the views and discussed what you need and want when you’re out there. So, from the hike, the functionality was built.” says Ben Gorham.
“The garments fuse Ben’s eye for detail and passion for the outdoors, along with Peak Performance’s expertise in building technical garments, without compromising in style” adds Jeanette Francke, Creative & Marketing Director of Peak Performance.
The Ben Gorham x Peak Performance “”Possessions of My Soul” collection drops today, February 27 on Highsnobiety Shop.
