Japanese contemporary outdoor label Bal Original teams up with Jose Parla for one of the season’s standout pieces. The brand borrowed artwork from the radical American painter, using the sporadic brushstrokes and collaged prints for a technical Mountain Parka. The ornate appearance of the jacket should not belie its exceeding performance; the Mountain Parka is composed of GE’s waterproof eVent fabric, which uses a three-layer membrane to improve breathability while maintaining maximum dryness. Look for this piece at Bal Original’s web shop now, priced about $603 USD.
