Never one to slouch with a cold weather collection, WHITE MOUNTAINEERING‘s Fall/Winter 2021 range is every bit as effortlessly appreciable as its past selections. A veteran gorpcore fashion brand before there were many others, the Japanese brand knows a thing or two about making trek gear look cool.
“Stay true to yourself,” says the WHITE MOUNTAINEERING show notes. “Won’t stop moving forward.” This indomitable sense of adventure empowers the back-to-basics approach that informs many of the new looks, fueled by sleek GORE-TEX parkas, trim down sweaters and relaxed, tapered trousers. Subtle plaids, geometric shapes and camouflage patterns grace the understated garments, with inorganic textiles subtly contrasting against the leather accessories and woven scarves and hats.
Collaborations with Mizuno, UGG, Saucony, Danner, Millet Gramicci and Briefing yield hi-tech sneakers, boots, jackets, trousers and bags that match the apparel’s muted patterns and palette, which is divided into rich khaki, quiet grey, navy and black.
