Japanese skiwear brand phenix has long operated its alk phenix sub-label as a more fashion-forward take on its technical worldview, with the Spring/Summer 2020 range upholding that mentality with function-oriented muted garments ideal for warm weather. The latest seasonal release includes a host of comfortable items infused with high-tech fabrics and utilitarian detailing.
A selection of diverse layering pieces — including a hanten jacket, hakama shorts and shoulder pouch — are cut from DYNAMONUS, a breathable, wind- and water-fighting shell that’s woven with kevlar for resistance to normal wear and tear. Executed in minimalist black, each garment sports a host of hidden details.
For instance, the Zak jacket, hanten and Crank coat all feature fit adjustments by way of hidden toggle buttons, dedicated wireless earphone pockets and Thunderon weaves for static-stopping properties. Polartec lining grants extra warmth to the coat, while the matching Crank pants feature a bevy of subtle zipper pockets and an elastic waist for maximum comfort.
The DYNAMONUS-rich range is available on alk phenix’s website and at Japanese stockists.
