fragment design x uniform experiment Air Craft Mountain Parka
fragment design and uniform experiment have tapped workwear brand Burtle for a uniquely functional piece of outerwear. The collaborative jacket was designed to cool wearers while protecting them from the elements.
The Air Craft Mountain parka is a high-performance nylon jacket with two detachable fans embedded on the sides. Controlled by a battery-powered remote that sits in the front pocket, the fans provide cooling circulation throughout the clothing at three different settings. The battery can be recharged via USB and can last up to 11 hours at the lowest power setting. A detachable hood featuring a reflective fragment logo, zippered pockets and a drawstring hem round up the design of the piece.
Oakley x size? “Chemical Vision” Capsule
Dubbed “Chemical Vision,” bright and bold hues of orange, red, purple and white are expressed on a selection crafted of technical fabrics. Eyewear silhouettes lead the capsule comprised of technical jackets, hoodies, T-shirts, shorts, hats and sock inspired by the West Coast tie-dye boom of the ’60s. Standout items include an iteration of Oakley’s iconic Eye Jacket and mirrored sunglasses that have been laser engraved with identification numbers.
