Goldwin releases a technical gorpcore capsule centered around GORE-TEX essentials for the winter season dubbed “Up Above and Down Below”. After a successful merino wool collection in collaboration with New Zealand label icebreaker, the Japanese outerwear brand drops these new protective pieces against hard weather conditions.
The new capsule collection encompasses three new GORE-TEX styles, full of technical details and complex construction:
- a durable GORE-TEX Pro shell set of jacket and pants
- a lightweight GORE-TEX Fly Air jacket and pullover
- and a GORE-TEX INFINIUM high-loft Down Parka
All the new pieces feature the most advanced membranes, which provide the wearer with long-lasting, strong and protective gear for severe snow and mountain conditions.
The new apparel series uses GORE-TEX’s constantly improving technology, so coveted within outdoor professionals and extreme athletes that go on ice climbing and winter mountaineering expeditions. In fact, the “Up Above and Down Below” campaign has been tried out with real professionals.
Climbers, alpine guides and skiers have tested the gear in the mountains of Nagano in Japan, evaluating the new pieces’ functionality and performance. In addition, the Japanese brand has also teamed up with Swiss collage artist Monique Baumann to launch the new capsule.
Together they have created a series of interesting and detailed-oriented snowy mountain scenes and product visuals. In the brand’s words:
“For this winter collection, Goldwin is using 40-denier GORE-TEX Pro Most Rugged for its durable waterproofing and increased strength and abrasion resistance without compromising on breathability”.
You can find the full GORE-TEX capsule collection at Goldwin’s online store with prices ranging between $730 USD and $780 USD. Goldwin is not the only brand working with GORE-TEX’s technical fabrics: in fact, you can take a look at thisisneverthat new seasonal collaboration.
