After Patagonia halted all of its operations amid the Coronavirus (COVID-19) crisis back in March, the imprint has returned with the unveiling of a mountain running-inspired collection for Spring 2020.
The collection puts a strong focus on sustainable materials, from using discarded ocean fishing nets to produce the brims of hats, to creating a mountain bike apparel line from recycled and natural materials in socially responsible Fair Trade factories. Cotton is responsibly sourced from the Regenerative Organic Certification (ROC) Pilot Cotton and Cotton in Conversion agricultural projects, while a collection of workwear staples have been made from organic cotton and hemp, too.
One of the standout offerings from Patagonia this season is its High Endurance kit, which introduces athlete-driven mountain running gear for both men and women. With this in mind, the clothing is designed to cope with drastic elevation and temperature changes, perfect for when running is mixed with the challenge of climbing.
Other outdoor-focused products from Patagonia include the new Two-Day Camp Meal Kit, which is filled with responsibly sourced, Patagonia-approved food. Nothing takes more than 10 minutes to make, and with a few basic ingredients, the kit is set up to make meals including banana breakfast grain pancakes, chili with polenta, and cheese and savory seafood paella.
Rounding out the offering is a line of daypack bags, coming in at 20 liters and 28 liters in size. They are made from solution-dyed recycled fabrics and have been designed to be as versatile as possible.
Take a look at the Patagonia Spring 2020 collection’s lookbook in the gallery above, and keep an eye out for the collection to drop on Patagonia’s website in the coming weeks.
