Following its previously released Polartec® capsule, Canadian retailer HAVEN has returned with an expansive set of garments for the current season. The range is inspired by military and workwear staples, modernized with the incorporation of such technologies as Primaloft, Polartec and CORDURA to enhance functionality.
Like previously released collections, the main color palette in the lineup has been restrained, applying black and olive tones to a number of utilitarian pieces. Garments like chain-quilted liners, BDU sweaters, parkas and tactical vests present a tech-heavy approach to cold-weather necessities, while other staples like waffle knits, checkered shirts and clean-cut flight jackets highlight the imprint’s affinity for refined tailoring.
One noteworthy piece in the range is the PrimaLoft Liner Jacket. Coming in both black and olive colorways, the piece sees intricately woven chain stitch quilting, complemented with mini-ripstop taffeta. It’s both lightweight and breathable, which makes it a versatile layering piece, and it comes with two large multi-pockets at the front for extra storage. Another highlight is the black Artillery Parka. The piece boasts a mid-length cut and is both water and wind-resistant due to its protective shell — compressed Japanese knitted textiles made by a special mill called komatsu. It’s a fabric that’s soft to the touch and molds to the shape of the wearer with prolonged use. It also packs 700 fill down insulation for warmth in sub-zero climates and includes a number of pockets around the body for added utility. Other pieces like the Cordura-lined Helo Pants, Combat Jackets and Ballistic Vests round up the expansive assemblage.
HAVEN’s latest FW19 lineup is currently available at havenshop.com, ranging from $60 – $1,210 USD.
