nonnative has taken inspiration from the European outdoor scene from the 80s and 90s to deliver a technical gear collection called “NORTH”.
Now, we have to address it, this delivery brings back to our minds Craghoppers’ latest FW21 collection, for which the label has reworked archive classics from the 70s and 80s.
After recently launching a GORE-TEX 39th outerwear collection with Gramicci, nonnative is working on outerwear seasonal pieces for the upcoming winter, as well as staple garments for next spring 2022. As the label states, a delivery “from early winter to early spring”.
The Japanese brand announced the following releases will feature new engineered and functional fabrics, among which we can spotlight GORE-TEX INFINIUM, CORDURA®, yak wool and Pilantex for protection purposes.
From knee lenght melton coats, coach jackets, puff blousons to knitted sweaters, vests and hiker pants, the collection features a variety of flexible styles. It will also offer a range of technical accessories, like leather bike gloves by Grip Swany, Dweller beanies, leather footwear and totes bags.
Color wise, “NORTH” collection is designed in nonnative’s signature colors, such as navy blue, beige, black and olive green. There are also lumberjack blue graphic prints from London-based artist Fergus “Fergadelic” Purcell and a striking red puffer coat.
nonnative’s “NORTH” capsule is still not available, although styles are already visible in the label’s website. The first launch is set for tomorrow October 9th at COVERCHORD and VENDOR. Following releases will periodically be delivered between this month and February.
