Editor’s Notes: The new collection from Woolrich's Outdoor Label – designed by Japanese sportswear brand Goldwin – is offering a selection of parkas, fleeces, padded shirts, and a fleeced baseball cap for the approaching fall/winter temperatures.
As demonstrated by the lookbook above, the collection builds out a stylish but practical wardrobe for challenging weather. There's a focus on developing outerwear pieces that are both sustainable and enduring.
The padded shirts, crafted from abrasion-resistant Cebonner® nylon, are made from upcycled oyster shell and recycled PET plastic bottles. Meanwhile, the filling from each parka uses Goldwin's recycled "Green Is Good" down.
Even if you're not planning a hike around the Appalachian trail as above, the collection works for the urban environments thanks to the inclusion of some ’80s and ’90s-inspired color-blocked pieces, and a few mid-weight options such as the high-pile Terra fleece pullovers and paneled nylon shirts.
