Haglöfs has enlisted the help of British outerwear label Nigel Cabourn for a concise capsule entitled “IC3”, which pays tribute to the pair’s mountain heritage.

Drawing inspiration from Haglöfs’ extensive 107 year history, the collection — which was co-designed by British designers Nigel Cabourn and Piers Thomas — doesn’t intend to be vintage, but instead evoke a new “retro-future” design.

As well as finding artistry through the Haglöfs archives, the pair also found originality in Sir Edmond Hillary’s 1953 Everest expedition. The IC3 Down Parka is the most obvious nod to the feat, a garment that has been updated with the brand’s high performance fabrics.

Despite being inspired by the past, the collection is also designed with everyday life in-between mountain expeditions in mind. It’s for this reason the capsule is more lifestyle-oriented than previous collections, although its build — with the inclusion of GORE-TEX, Polartec and down — means it’s ready for any occasion

Take a look at the full collection in the slides above, all of which is available from both Haglöfs and Nigel Cabourn webstores.
