Winter seems like the obvious season to have fun with outerwear, with spring and summer taking the trophy when it comes to shirting and shorts. But that’s not necessarily true. With labels like South2 West8 introducing a cocktail of utility and luxury styling, looking to daring fabrics like sheer meshes, summer outerwear is feeling like the most fun it’s ever been.

Like the brand itself, the South2 West8 SS22 collection takes inspiration from the world of fly-fishing — a world rarely explored in the upper echelons of fashion, but one perhaps that should be explored further.

Utility-driven silhouettes feature cropped bodies designed to stay out of the water when wading through rivers or droves of pockets intended for bait, hooks, and more. At the hands of South2 West8, these functional features become distinctive styling points.

The brand’s latest collection features some of the strongest summer jackets that we’ve seen from the label yet. From see-through highlights to more classic workwear silhouettes, there are South2 West8 jackets for all styles. Take a look at our top picks below.
